Home > Drug Crimes > STATE v. L.N.


Offense: Possession of a Scheduled Drug (Class C Felony)

Maximum Penalty: 5 years prison, probation, $5,000.00 fine

Summary: Client, a visiting nurse, was driving down the road when she was stopped by the State Police for speeding.  During the conversation with the trooper, the client admitted that she had oxycodone in the vehicle but insisted that it belonged to a patient.  Oxycodone was found in a prescription bottle with the patient’s name on it.  Client was charged with felony possession of drugs.

Result: Charges were dismissed prior to trial.  We were able to track down the client’s patient who signed an affidavit that the drugs belonged to her and that they were prescribed by her doctor.  Patient was willing to testify at trial so the DA dismissed the case.
