ATTEMPT TO COMMIT ACQUISITION OR ADMINISTRATION OF NARCOTIC DRUGS (2017)

Cindy Castillo Drugs, Case Successes

State v. JL
Charges: Attempt to Commit Acquisition or Administration of Narcotic Drugs, a Class 4 Felony.
Date:March 24, 2017
Outcome: REDUCED TO THE TASC DIVERSION PROGRAM-WILL RESULT IN A DISMISSAL OF ALL CHARGES UPON CLIENT’S COMPLETION OF THE PROGRAM
Description: Maricopa County Superior Court: Client JL allegedly entered a Fry’s Grocery Store presented a prescription to the Fry’s pharmacist along with a Nevada driver’s license. The pharmacist was suspicious of the prescription and confirmed with the doctor of the prescription that it was in fact forged. The pharmacist had been suspicious because the day prior a prescription from the same doctor was presented by another individual that turned out to be forged. It was determined these cases were not related. A copy of the driver’s license presented was provided to police and the pharmacist said the ID matched the person’s appearance. A motor vehicle record from Nevada also matched the person’s description. The prescription was for 300 milliliters of Promethazine and Codeine oral syrup (a narcotic) and 40 capsules of 500 milligrams of Amoxil.

After providing the State with an extensive deviation memorandum the State agreed to allow JL to participate in the TASC diversion program. Once JL completes the program all charges will be dismissed thereby avoiding jail time and a felony conviction.

Results depend upon factors unique to each case. Results in one case do not predict results in another case.
