Mitigating Heroin Crime Penalties

From the beginning to the end of your heroin crime case, our priorities lie in reducing your charges as much as possible, or having them entirely dismissed. With heroin crimes breaking both federal and state statutes, the potential penalties upon conviction can be massive, including at least one year in prison and thousands of dollars in fines.

Penalties for heroin crimes can escalate depending on:

  • How much of the drug is in question.
  • Who bought the drug, if anyone did.
  • Where the alleged crimes took place.
  • Your preexisting criminal record.

In order to mitigate those penalties, we will need to know as much about your arrest as possible. We intend to work closely with you throughout your case to establish trust, gain a full understanding of what happened, and turn our efforts into significant advantages in court. Sometimes a complete dismissal of charges is not possible due to overwhelming evidence; in such scenarios, we may want to discuss plea bargains for reduced or alternate penalties, such as enrollment in a mandatory drug treatment program.
