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
often includes a lengthy prison sentence and tens of thousands of dollars
in fines—a first offense is punishable by no less than 2 years in
prison and $15,000 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.
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.
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 a drug
crime attorney immediately if you are facing this offense in Marietta
or elsewhere in Georgia.
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 $50,000 in fines.
The fines and other punishments may not account for potential federal charges
that may be associated with the offense. These fines do not account for
potential federal charges, which may lead to further sentencing and fines.
