San Antonio Prescription Drug Lawyer
Fighting Accusations of Prescription Drug Offenses
At the Law Office of
Kerrisa Chelkowski, I understand how easily one can be caught up in the world of prescription
drug abuse. Today, more than ever, prescription drugs are being abused
at an alarming rate. For example, the advent of Oxycontin, a very powerful
pain killer, has swept across the nation and has wreaked havoc in the
lives of those using the drug.
Other than possession-related crimes, typically prescription drug offenses
will involve internet fraud or obtaining prescriptions by fraud and doctor
shopping. What may once have started as a physical dependency on medically
necessary prescriptions for pain or anxiety often can become an addiction
resulting in selling legally obtained prescriptions on the street or finding
a "pill mill" where doctors will prescribe medications to patients
who don't meet the necessary requirements for a prescription.
If you have been charged with a crime involving a prescription drug, we
encourage you to
speak with my firm at once.
Former Prosecutor Defending You

cases where individuals are charged with importing or exporting prescription
medication across international borders through the mail or a boat or
Many of my clients are even professionals who have been caught up in one
way or another using:
- Anabolic steroids
- Human growth hormone (HGH)
- Iinsulin growth factor (IGF)
- Drugs sold without FDA approval
The illegal purchase and sale of chemicals used to make methamphetamine
can also result in a drug crime charge. Drug abuse and addiction does
not discriminate based on age, gender, race, or social status.
Penalties for Prescription Drug Crimes
The penalties for prescription drug crimes are just as severe as those
penalties for illegal or other controlled substances and can carry lengthy
jail terms and very sizable fines. If you find yourself facing charges
relating to prescription drugs, do not wait to speak to an experienced
criminal defense attorney who has a practice focusing on drug crimes.
former prosecutor, I have valuable inside knowledge and experience as to how the state will
prosecute their case, allowing me to hone in on the various aspects of
a case which may be its Achilles heel. From the manner in which you were
searched, arrested, the chain of custody of evidence being used against
you and the techniques used to elicit information from witnesses, there
are many pitfalls to a prosecution's case which I can use to possibly
have your charges dismissed or reduced.
