Protect Yourself And Your Future
An arrest on a prescription drug charge, even where there is no conviction, can have truly devastating effects on a person’s life. For those seeking employment, a conviction can be detected through background checks and can result in disqualification from certain types of jobs. This is especially true for individuals who hold a professional license that was issued by a state board.
