Heroin Possession Charges
The consequences of any illegal dealings with heroin will be incredibly
steep. The most common of heroin crimes is
possession, which is also subject to the least intense penalties. Upon conviction
just for simple heroin possession, the sentencing will still be severe.

- 6 months to 2 years imprisonment
- $1,000 fine or three-times the value of the possessed substance (whichever
As heroin possession is the “least” serious heroin crime, any
other heroin charges can incur greater penalties. Other forms of drug
selling the substance for profit, and distributing it to others for any reason.
Distribution in mass quantities or across significant distances could constitute trafficking.
