Xanax Possession or Distribution
Woodbridge NJ Xanax Defense Lawyer
A defense lawyer at The Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall is ready to assist you if you were charged with possession of Xanax or distribution of Xanax. Our team of criminal attorneys possesses over a century of experience defending prescription drug charges, including Xanax, in Woodbridge and elsewhere in Middlesex County. The generic name of Xanax is Alprazolam and this controlled dangerous substance is used primarily to treat anxiety and as a muscle relaxer. This narcotic medication is extremely addictive and subject to major abuse. Whether you were arrested in Woodbridge, Cranbury, Sayreville, North Brunswick or South River, an attorney with the tools to challenge the case against you is here at our firm. The staff includes several former prosecutors, including Jason Seidman, a former supervisor at the Office of the Middlesex County Prosecutor. To speak to Jason or another member of our staff, call our Woodbridge Office at 732-634-0700 for a free consultation.
Xanax Distribution Charge
Prescription drugs are highly regulated in New Jersey. For example, if you are arrested with one Xanax pill without a valid prescription you will face criminal charges that carry significant fines and the possibility of jail. The situation is particularly serious if you are accused of selling, distributing or possessing Xanax with the intent to distribute the drug. Distribution is an indictable crime of the fourth degree where four or fewer dosage units are involved, a third degree crime for at least five but less than 100 pills and a second degree crime where 100 or more doses are sold. These grades of offense carry a state prison term of 18 months, 5 years and 5-10 years, respectively.
Xanax Possession Offense
The consequences of a conviction for possessing Xanax are not much lighter than those previously described. Unless you are talking about failure to keep the drug in its prescribed container or fewer than five pills, possession of Xanax with a valid prescription is a felony crime. A conviction results in many of the penalties set forth above. In addition, you are subject to a mandatory driver’s license suspension of at least six months and as much as 24 months at the time of sentencing.
