Defending Against Heroin Distribution Charges

The consequences associated with the possession of heroin with the intent to distribute can be life-changing. With that being said, you will need every resource possible to defend yourself and protect your rights throughout the coming legal process. The first thing you should do is retain the legal services of an experienced criminal defense attorney who can develop a legal strategy to help you challenge each and every aspect of the charges that have been brought against you.

Possible Consequences of a Conviction for Heroin Distribution

If you are suspected of possessing heroin with the intent to distribute, there is a very good chance that the prosecution will pursue the harshest penalties that are available under the law against you, including the following:

  • Up to 10 years in a state prison or 2½ years in a House of Correction
  • Court imposed fines that run anywhere between $1,000 and $10,000
  • Revocation of your driver’s license

Though the consequences of a conviction are serious, you need to remember that you will still have the opportunity to work with an attorney to defend your rights and protect your future in court.
