Charges for the 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 are “recreational” and do not have a medical purpose, they are considered completely illegal. If you are arrested for heroin possession, the penalties you face will depend on the amount of heroin seized.

The following offenses involving heroin are considered much more serious offenses than just possession:

  • Selling
  • Manufacturing
  • Trafficking
  • Intent to deliver

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 defense attorney if charged. Otherwise, you could be facing serious penalties.​

Being charged with a drug crime can have serious ramifications in your life, especially if convicted of a felony level offense.
