Prescription Drug Crimes

Prescription drug crimes are on the rise in Minnesota. As a result, strict laws have been enacted that impose severe penalties on anyone convicted of a prescription drug crime.

If you are facing charges for a prescription drug offense, contact Sheridan & Dulas, P.A. We defend clients against all prescription drug offenses, including:

  • Illegal possession of a prescription drug
  • Possession with intent to distribute
  • Illegal distribution, sales or trafficking
  • Prescription forgeries
  • Offenses involving all prescription medications, including oxycodone (OxyContin or Percocet), hydrocodone (Vicodin) and codeine

We defend clients in the Twin Cities and throughout Minnesota against drug charges. To speak with a Minnesota prescription drug crime attorney, contact our law office in Eagan.

Get The Aggressive Defense You Need

Being convicted of any drug charge is a serious matter. A conviction could result in jail time and other serious criminal penalties. It could also adversely impact your future employment opportunities and have other serious collateral consequences.

At Sheridan & Dulas, P.A., we do not simply look for the quickest and easiest plea agreement. We prepare each case for the possibility of trial and provide an aggressive defense for each client we serve.

We take time to review police conduct leading to your arrest to identify procedural errors that may be used to your advantage. We review the prosecution's evidence to identify flaws in their case. As your counsel, we will review key issues that could impact your case:

  • Did the police find evidence of a prescription medication after making a traffic stop? If so, did the officer have sufficient cause to make a lawful traffic stop?
  • Did the police exceed the scope of a search warrant or execute a search with a warrant that was not supported by probable cause? If the police conducted an unconstitutional search and seizure, we can seek to suppress evidence found as a result of the search.
  • Can the prosecution prove that you knowingly possessed a prescription medication in violation of the law? For example, could the medication have belonged to a third party if it was found in a car, home or apartment used by multiple parties?

By analyzing these and other issues, we will raise a strong defense on your behalf. We are committed to the protection of your freedom, record and rights.
