Let a federal heroin lawyer defend you

Let Attorney Todd Spodek from Spodek Law Group Defend You Against Federal Heroin Charges

When facing charges related to the sale, distribution, or possession of heroin, it is critical that you have a credible and experienced defense lawyer by your side. At Spodek Law Group, we understand the seriousness of the charges you are facing and the severe penalties that come with a conviction. Our team of experts has extensive knowledge of both state and federal codes under the Controlled Substance Act, and we have a deep understanding of the legal complexities involved in heroin cases.

Why You Need a Heroin Lawyer

Possessing even the smallest amount of heroin can lead to serious criminal charges. As a Schedule I drug, heroin has the most severe penalties regarding possession. It is wise to have a heroin lawyer present even when speaking to the police. We have the experience and expertise to negotiate on your behalf and protect your rights at every stage of the legal process.

What Is Heroin?

Heroin is a highly addictive drug that comes from morphine. It belongs to the opioids class of drugs and is similar to known painkillers such as hydrocodone or oxycodone. It is a very dangerous drug that can be a powder that’s white or brown or even black and sticky, depending on the methods used to make it and any substances it may get combined with.

Heroin Possession Charges

Possession of heroin, in any amount, is a crime. The prosecutor must prove that you knew about the heroin that was in your control. However, if someone mistakenly grabs a stranger’s jacket, containing heroin identical to theirs, they will not get charged. Unless the prosecution can prove that this was anything more than an accident, the individual is free to go.

Penalties for Heroin Crimes

The penalties for heroin crimes depend on your criminal history. If it is your first offense and you have no other convictions for possession of heroin or other narcotics, your sentence will be less severe. You may face up to one year in prison or a fine of $1000 (or more), or both. However, if you have any prior convictions of possession, whether at the state or federal level, you may get sentenced to at least 15 days in prison, up to two years. You may also receive a fine of $2,500 or more, in addition to possible imprisonment.

If you have more than two prior convictions of heroin possession or possession of any narcotics, you might have to serve three months in prison, pay at least $5,000, or both. The length of your prison sentence and the fine amount depend on the number of drugs you have in your possession. If it is suspected that you had the intention to sell the heroin, you will receive a much harsher penalty.
