THEFT OF DRUGS
AGGRAVATED POSSESSION OF DRUGS
TAMPERING WITH DRUGS
My son has been in some trouble lately. I thought that he was doing great. Last night his girl friend called and said he was being charged with these charges. I havent spoke to my son in a while. I just hope he can get over this and move on. Bless his girlfriends heart. She is such a good girl and sticks right there with him. I love her but honestly she should move on and enjoy her life.

How old is your son?
Has he been in trouble before?
Never been in trouble with the law he is 35. He is plenty old enough to know better. I thought he was doing good. I'm in shock. Will it be a slap on the hand? Or jail time? Will he loose his kid?

I would like him to do some time with rehab and probation to keep him clean. I don't want him locked up for years. He needs help. I'm worried about the child too. Thanks for your time.

Mearan would do a good job, the best is Rick Faulkner for ANY legal matter.

Try asking your grown-up-man-son why he chose to engage in criminal behavior. He may have a history you know nothing about.

True ask him,and his girlfriend. Little more to this story,just saying.
I will I'm not even sure what the charges mean do you? Theft to drugs? Does that mean he stole drugs? Aggravated possession? How's that different from just possession ? Tampering with drugs? I'm clueless on any of this. I've never done or been around drugs. Early 20s he got with the wrong crowd in college. I new he tried weed a few times. It tore me up but he said it was only a few times and he stopped. He wAs not a teenager I couldn't do anything and I thought he was doing so good.

Rick Faulkner is a worthless lawyer! He's only good in Portsmouth and with a certain judge. If he thinks he's going to lose or you won't take a plea deal then he'll quit. If your son is going to snitch then go for Mearan or Faulkner their one in the same. One is a story telling pervert and the other is a story telling pimp!
Get your son help!

Theft of Drugs in Ohio is a Felony in the 4th degree.

Aggravated Possession of Drugs means he was caught with alot of drugs and without knowing exactly how much, it's hard to say what degree Felony he is charged with.

Tampering with Drugs, Ohio Code 2925.24,

(A) No person shall knowingly adulterate or alter any dangerous drug or substitute any dangerous drug with another substance.

(B) No person shall knowingly adulterate or alter any package or receptacle containing any dangerous drug or substitute any package or receptacle containing any dangerous drug with another package or receptacle.

(C) Divisions (A) and (B) of this section do not apply to manufacturers, practitioners, pharmacists, owners of pharmacies, nurses, and other persons, when the conduct of the manufacturer, practitioner, pharmacist, owner of a pharmacy, nurse, or other person is in accordance with Chapters 3719., 4715., 4723., 4729., 4731., and 4741. of the Revised Code.

(D) It is an affirmative defense to a charge under this section alleging that a person altered a dangerous drug that the dangerous drug the person allegedly altered was lawfully prescribed for the person’s personal use and that the person did not sell or transfer or intend to sell or transfer the dangerous drug to another person.

(E) Whoever violates this section is guilty of tampering with drugs, a felony of the third degree. If the violation results in physical harm to any person, tampering with drugs is a felony of the second degree.

First, you have to realize, you are not the one charged. I know he is your son and you would die for him. But he needs to lie in the bed he made. if this is really a first timer, they will take that into consideration. He is on dope, let the courts help him. DO NOT enable him. If you want to get him a lawyer go ahead and spend your money to do so. But your son needs help. If it was bad enough for him to get into trouble then its bad. At least he woke up today, it could be worse.
I will pray for you and your son
I know how hard it must be, I used to do the same crap to my parents, thank GOD Im 11 + years clean and I have made it up to them everyday for that 11 years
They had to stop enabling me to get me to realize there was an issue.
Your son needed this to happen, and just as you said, his gf needs to move on. If she loves him and he loves her, he will get sober to be with her
If she isnt on dope herself she needs to be away from him while he is doing it

I agree. My daughter had gotten herself in trouble like that. She was always a good person. But she had a bad problem. Then she turned into a not so good person. If those are his charges, then there is probably ALOT of things you don't know. I know i enabled my daughter alot and I struggled with hiring an attorney for her. I didn't. She was sent to Star for 6 months, and is now on probation. 2 years left of a 5 yr probation. She is doing well but sure messed up her life as in being able to get a job and take care of her kids. Hope your son gets the help he needs. Its a LONG road.

Your an idiot! Not only will he be your attorney if you snitch, he'll represent you even after he represented the very individual/s who snitched on you!
Now if you need me to slow that down for you so you'll comprehend then I will.
He represented two people that snitched on me in cases that led to mine. He knew what these people did and that it would harm me but he still took my money. When it got close to the court date he bailed out and gave no explanation as to why. Left me thousands out of pocket and no real defense! He's a crook and tells the biggest stories ever! I also did five years because of this and the prosecuting attorney told me that I could've got eighteen months if Mr. Faulkner wasn't so errogant and distasteful in his representation. That's three and a half years my children went without their father and I set in jail because of an errogant prick who stole twenty thousand plus from me. F**k him and the horse his worthless a** rode in on!!!
