Examining the legal standard for negligent prescribing

If you are a healthcare practitioner in Jacksonville, then you likely rightly follow the line of thinking that your first obligation is the well-being and satisfaction of your patients (even if that well-being requires the consistent use of prescription medications). If it is later discovered that one of your patients was abusing those substances, people may question whether or not you had a hand in allowing that abuse. You may believe the chance of facing such accusations to be impossible, yet many of those that we here at Sheppard, White, Kachergus, & DiMaggio. P.A., Attorneys & Counselors At Law have helped in past shared the same feelings, only to later be proven wrong. 

How is intent to sell proven?

All of the drug offenses described in Florida’s state statutes carry with them significant criminal penalties. The potential for facing one such penalty after having been arrested in Jacksonville can be great. Can you imagine how much more so it may be if you are facing multiple drug charges? Often, a drug arrest may not result in just one charge for possession. Depending on the circumstances of your arrest, an added charge of intent to sell may be added on.

Incident at St. Augustine rest stop leads to drug arrest

Often, it is in the investigation of a certain event in Jacksonville where law enforcement officials may discover ancillary issues which lead to other seemingly unrelated criminal charges. While some may argue that one’s actions and behavior patterns would have eventually revealed the criminal activity that he or she was allegedly engaged in, people should still be able to expect a right to privacy and due process. Yet at times, circumstances may end up uncovering issues that officials may be prompted to act upon.
