Caught with Illegal Prescription Medications? Call John Tumelty – Atlantic & Cape May County Drug Lawyer

Are Prescription Drug Charges Less Serious Than Other Crimes?

Some people believe that crimes that involve prescription drugs are treated less seriously than crimes that involve marijuana, cocaine, and other illegal drugs. This is not true, however, and the penalties for prescription drug crimes in New Jersey can be just as severe as penalties for illegal drug crimes. Depending on the type and amount of drug, the consequences could be significant.

If you have been charged with an offense involving illegal prescription medications, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney who can successfully represent you and protect your rights. I am John W. Tumelty, an Atlantic City drug charges lawyer who represents people charged with drug offenses in Atlantic County, Cape May County and other counties in South Jersey.

Don’t hesitate to contact my firm for a free initial consultation where we can discuss your charges. Call my office today at 609-390-4600 to make an appointment.
