Heroin Offenses & Punishments
Large or small, any amount of heroin results in an extremely severe punishment. Whether you are facing charges of possession, selling, or trafficking, this could easily result in a felony conviction. A heroin conviction can result in a lengthy prison sentence and tens of thousands of dollars in fines. In the long run, the mark of a conviction on your criminal record could ruin your chances at a career and prohibit you from taking advantage of many opportunities in the future.
- Heroin Possession: Possessing heroin is a felony crime that could lead to 15 years in prison on a first offense. Even having only a small amount of heroin on your person can result in a devastating criminal charge. Do not underestimate the effects of even a minor possession charge.
- Selling Heroin: Charges of selling heroin are much more severe than possession charges because they have a more widespread effect. A first offense for selling heroin may lead to a prison sentence of up to 30 years. Contact our drug crime attorneys immediately if you are facing this offense in Paulding County or elsewhere in Georgia.
- Heroin Trafficking: Trafficking offenses are based on the amount of a substance in your possession. Even if you were not actually trafficking drugs, possessing a large amount of heroin could result in the full penalty of a trafficking charge. A mere four grams of heroin can warrant five years in prison and $75,000 in fines.
