Norwalk, Connecticut "Doctor Shopping" and Prescription Drug Crimes Defense Attorneys
There is a common misconception that as long as you have been prescribed a drug that you can't be charged with its possession. While that may be a plausible legal defense in a Connecticut courtroom, police on the street are taking an aggressive approach to enforcing prescription drug laws, and some of those measures may be counter to this conventional thought. Consequently many law enforcement officers in the jurisdictions of Fairfield, Litchfield, and New Haven are making controlled substance arrests on marginal probable cause. If you've been charged with a prescription drug crime in Southeast Connecticut, you need to secure the services of a veteran criminal defense attorney who is familiar with drug crimes in Connecticut. The criminal defense lawyers of Norwalk's Mark M. Kratter, LLC represent individuals who have been charged with all drug crimes, including the possession or sale of prescription narcotics.
