Fighting Prescription Drug Charges In Brazoria County

Many people start using prescription drugs, such as painkillers, with a prescription after surgery or an accident and become hooked. When that prescription runs out, they seek to obtain the drug from other illegal sources, such as doctor shopping or using a friend or family member’s prescription. Illegal prescription drug use in Texas is on the rise and is being pursued aggressively.

If you are facing charges of illegal possession a controlled substance, you may be facing incarceration, a permanent criminal record and difficulty finding employment or passing background checks.

It is essential that you hire an attorney who knows their way around the Brazoria County legal system. My name is Phil Morin, and as a former Brazoria County prosecutor, I know how the system works and will commit myself to protecting your rights at every stage of the legal process.

Using Insider Knowledge to Protect Your Rights

Texas takes illegal possession and sale of prescription drugs seriously and often imposes severe penalties. Possessing even a small amount of a prescription drug, such as fentanyl, can come with severe consequences.

Prescription drug charges often result from these circumstances:

  • Possession without a prescription
  • Forged prescriptions
  • Doctor-shopping
  • Stolen prescription pads or medication
  • Illegal internet drug sales or purchases

Using prescription drugs without a prescription is a felony. It is also a felony to share prescription drugs with a friend or family member. If you give drugs to a person and they die of an overdose, you could face murder charges.

I use my experience as a former prosecutor to your advantage when I defend clients. Knowing how the county handles criminal cases, I can anticipate the strongest defense and use that knowledge to aggressively defend your rights.
