Arrested After A Traffic Stop?
Some of the top-selling oxycodone clinics in the country are located in Florida. People from many states come to Florida to buy prescription painkillers at these clinics. Police and state troopers make traffic stop along roads such as I-275, I-95 and the Florida turnpike in the hopes of catching individuals trafficking prescription drugs. If they find painkillers in the vehicle, the passengers can be arrested and charged with drug trafficking just for possessing a large amount of a drug, even if they have a legitimate prescription.
At Mark J. O’Brien, our results for many of our clients facing state and federal charges speak for themselves.
