Possession of Heroin

Heroin is considered a Schedule I drug. Schedule I drugs are described as having a high potential for abuse and lacking any medical value or purpose. Because these drugs “recreational” and do not have a medical purpose, they are considered completely illegal. If you are arrested for heroin possession, the penalties you face if convicted depend on the amount of heroin seized.

Heroin Amount Felony Level Fines Jail Time
0-15g Class 4 Felony Up to $25,000 1-3 years
15-100g Class 1 Felony Up to $200,000 4-15 years
100-400g Class 1 Felony Up to $200,000 or street value 6-30 years
400-900g Class 1 Felony Up to $200,000 or street value 8-40 years
Over 900g Class 1 Felony Up to $200,000 or street value 10-50 years

Sale, Manufacture, & Intent to Traffic Heroin

Selling, manufacturing, trafficking, and intent to deliver heroin are considered much more serious offenses than just possession. The minimum punishments for these convictions are much higher, meaning steeper fines and longer jail sentences. Due to the gravity of these convictions, it is of utmost importance to retain a skilled Chicago heroin attorney if charged. Otherwise, you could be facing the below punishments:

Heroin Amount Felony Level Fines Jail Time
15-100g Class 1 Felony Up to $500,000 6-30 years
100-400g Class 1 Felony Up to $500,000 or street value 9-40 years
400-900g Class 1 Felony Up to $500,000 or street value 12-50 years
Over 900g Class 1 Felony Up to $500,000 or street value 15-60 years
