Penalties for Heroin Crime Charges
California has particularly strict laws against heroin use, possession, sale, and distribution. Even just simple possession of heroin can be charged as a felony.
You could be facing the following penalties:
- Up to three years in prison and a felony conviction for possession
- Mandatory substance abuse program for possession
- Up to five years in state prison for sale of heroin
- Up to nine years for selling to minors
- Extensive fines for selling to minor (up to $50,000)
For users, the prosecution will often seek to work out a deal for treatment, while traffickers and dealers face much tougher penalties. Regardless of what type of crime you have been accused of, it is crucial that you obtain legal representation.
If you are found with possession of drug paraphernalia related to heroin, such as syringes or needles, you may also be facing prosecution. Additionally, transportation and trafficking of heroin often lead to much more severe charges, especially if you cross over state lines.
