Possession of Drugs or Controlled Substances
Possession of any controlled substance is a serious crime and prosecutors are determined to exact the maximum penalties if you are convicted. Just the mere possession of less than 25 grams of cocaine or crack could mean 4 years in prison and up to $25K in fines. And as the amount you possess increase, the penalties are even greater. Plus, if there is a major amount of drugs, count on the Feds getting involved which will only add to your problems.

Remember, the prosecutor will take this offense seriously. You Should Too

Prescription Fraud

Misrepresenting yourself to a doctor or pharmacist, doctor shopping, or being dishonest when obtaining controlled substances from a doctor or pharmacist are examples of prescription fraud. Physicians who prescribe drugs without a legitimate purpose may be accused of prescription fraud as well.

Using a fake or altered prescription or using the prescription belonging to someone else is considered Prescription Fraud. Another common practice is going to different doctors to get the same controlled substance. Often time chronic sufferers, after legitimately being prescribed opiates, such as Vicoden or Oxycontin, find themselves needing larger and larger doses and resorting to prescription fraud to obtain their drugs.

If you are charged with Prescription Fraud, you need an aggressive and experience criminal defense attorney who will examine all the facts.

At Schmierlaw we will:
  • Challenge any search and seizure issues to make sure your Constitutional Rights were protected
  • Make sure any evidence against you was properly obtained
  • Closely examine why you did what you did? For example, was there a doctor at fault for initially prescribing an addictive substance without closely monitoring the amount you are taking
  • Consider any diversion program which will work to end your drug dependence and keep a conviction off your record


Consulting an experienced criminal defense attorney is essential when charged with a drug crime. It can mean the difference between a bright or an uncertain future. Contact a criminal defense lawyer skilled in drug crimes if you have been charged with prescription fraud. Contact Schmierlaw for an intital. No-cost consultation.


Drug Paraphernalia

Sometimes a police officer or Prosecutor may decide to do easy on you. For instance, you are pulled over for speeding and the officer noticed some papers and some weed in a baggie on the front seat. While possessing the weed is legal in Michigan, transporting it the way you did is against the law. The Officer, being the nice guy he is and you, being the most polite guy in the world without any criminal history, offers to give you a ticket for Paraphernalia, a minor misdemeanor, rather than a more serious offense that, while weed is legal, still carries a negative stigma. You eagerly sigh with relief, go into the court when summoned, pay a stiff fine, and walk out the door.

Not so fast. This may not be the best thing to do. An experienced drug crime attorney may be able to get a better result that won’t result in a criminal conviction being on your record, even a minor one, like Possession of Paraphernalia. Because Possession of Paraphernalia is not prohibited by State statute but by local ordinance, there may be better alternatives than pleading guilty to this lesser charge.

At Schmierlaw we have experience with drug crimes and are committed to providing you the best criminal defense possible. Call for an initial, no-cost consultation.
