Prescription Drug Charges

In recent years, law enforcement agencies across the country have issued crackdowns on prescription drug offenses. In 2014, the South Carolina Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) was signed into law to further enforce the state's prescription drug laws.

If you have been charged with a crime involving prescription drugs like Xanax, OxyContin, Vicodin or Valium, the right attorney can make the difference between moving on with your life and spending time in prison.

I am Jonathan M. Harvey, a criminal defense lawyer serving Columbia, South Carolina, and the surrounding area. I provide tenacious, knowledgeable representation to people who want the best possible outcome in their case.

I have successfully represented people accused of a variety of prescription drug offenses, including:

  • Possession of drugs without a valid prescription
  • Possession with intent to distribute
  • Possession in proximity to a school
  • Prescription drug fraud
  • Money laundering in connection with a drug crime

Building Relationships To Help You Succeed

With more than 30 years of experience as a criminal law attorney, I understand the high stakes of drug charges. I work closely with you, developing a professional relationship so I can give you the best advice for your unique situation. In many cases, we are able to pursue rehabilitation instead of criminal punishment. This shows the prosecution and judges that you take the matter seriously while pursuing the best possible outcome.

I thoroughly examine the facts of every case to determine what the allegations are, what the prosecution can prove and how I can improve my client's situation. My experience as a former prosecutor means we can stay one step ahead of the opposition.
