Skilled Defense For Prescription Drug Offenses

The use of prescription drugs has exploded in recent years, between recreational use and addiction to painkillers. The misuse of prescription-only medications has also caught the attention of law enforcement, resulting in many arrests.

If you have been arrested or investigated in connection with prescription drugs, I can help. I am Ryan L. Beasley, an experienced criminal defense lawyer serving the Upstate region. I will take action to protect your rights, and possibly get your criminal charges dismissed or reduced. I have successfully resolved drug charges for clients in Greenville, Anderson, Spartanburg and the surrounding counties.

I will assert your rights. Call me today at 864-991-3379 or 800-761-1985.

These Cases Are Prosecuted As Drug Crimes

Prescription narcotics are tightly regulated because of the potential for abuse. To law enforcement, possessing these drugs without a prescription or distributing them without a license is viewed the same as possession and sale of other controlled substances. That means you are potentially facing a felony record, prison and lifelong consequences if the charges stick.

I have a record of successful outcomes in prescription drug crime defense:

  • Prescription drug possession (Oxycodone, Percocet, Valium, etc.)
  • Possession with intent to distribute
  • Prescription fraud
  • Trafficking in prescription drugs

The Bureau of Drug Control of the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control often investigates prescription drug offenses. I have defended nurses and pharmacists accused of stealing or dealing prescription medications through their employment. I have defended college students and adults from all walks of life accused of unlawful possession of prescription-only drugs.

Intervention And Defense

I examine the circumstances of your arrest to determine how best to defend you. Do authorities have evidence of fraud or an illegal transaction? Were the drugs discovered in a traffic stop or a warrantless search? Do the pills belong to a family member or friend? Are there mitigating factors, such as addiction?

I've had good results on the front end of drug investigations, including dismissals and favorable negotiations. I am prepared to defend you at trial to protect your freedom and your future.
