How is it possible for the Sheriff to tell my doctors & say I was saying I was selling my Rx pills when I've only been charged?

Asked over 1 year ago - Supply, NC

I was only charged. It isn't true. I haven't been convicted. They are basically telling my doctors that I am guilty before being proven guilty. Am I not supposed to be innocent until proven guilty? How does this work?

    Answered . I agree with the previous answer. It if is not true, hire a good defense lawyer and defend yourself. The State does in fact have to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you sold your prescription drugs. Good luck to you.

    Answered . This happens every day in Brunswick County. Being charged is one thing. Being convicted is a whole other matter! You are, of course, innocent until proven guilty and the burden of proof lies with the State of North Carolina.
    If your charges were from Brunswick County, we would be more than happy to speak with you if you have any questions. Best of luck!
