Types of heroin possession charges
If you are convicted of heroin possession, your charge will be classified as a felony, the most serious kind of criminal charge. As a result, you could spend years in jail if you’re found guilty of heroin possession. The larger the amount of heroin that police claim you had in your possession at the time of your arrest, the more severe the penalties.

Put your trust in our law firm
Many people charged with heroin possession think they don’t have any options. The reality is that’s rarely true. Sometimes, prosecutors agree to a plea deal. Other times, the charges may be dismissed altogether. That’s why it’s important to work with an experienced attorney after your arrest.
There are so many reasons why we may be able to negotiate a plea deal on your behalf or get your charges dismissed. The arresting police officer may have conducted an illegal search. Or maybe your civil rights were violated during your arrest. Or perhaps the evidence was stored improperly or tampered with after your arrest.
