    Default What is the Penalty for Lortab Possession

    I was arrested and when I was being brought in one lortab was "found in my pocket" at the jail. I had already been searched and did not have the pill. I do noty know where it came from and when I bonded out there was a black die "gaming dice" in with my property bag that came out of my pocket that I also had never seen. That aside.
    What am I facing if convicted?
