Columbus Percocet Lawyer

Prescription Drug Offenses Involving Percocet

Percocet is a prescribed narcotic pain reliever and a schedule II controlled substance. It falls in the same category as oxycodone and acetaminophen. Percocet is prescribed for people suffering from moderate to severe physical pain. As with OxyContin, Xanax and Vicodin, Percocet is extremely addictive and should only be taken by someone who has received a valid prescription for it from an authorized physician.

Drug possession is a criminal offense and possession of Percocet without a valid prescription can result in a third degree felony charge. If you secured a prescription for the drugs illegally, then you could also be looking at prescription fraud charges. As Percocet is likely to be the most commonly subscribed drug following surgery, it is not uncommon for people to become addicted. This may result in them going to extreme and illegal measures to secure more Percocet, in order to continue its use.

Fines for fraudulently obtaining Percocet through the use of an invalid or illegal prescription, or possession of even a small amount of Percocet, with the intent to distribute could result in fines of up to $50,000. Possession or distribution of larger amounts of Percocet could result in fines up to $300,000 and up to 10 years in jail.
