Possession or Distribution of Heroin

Getting charged with possession or distribution of heroin or another narcotic can be one of the most scary and intimidating things that can happen to a person. I’ve kept hundreds of regular people in Maryland just like you out of jail. You need to preserve your life, your job, your relationships, and your record, and I can help you do that.

I have negotiated to get cases dismissed before trial, excluded the government’s evidence at trial, and exploited little known areas of the law to secure a verdict of “not guilty”. Call me at (301) 556-8709 so that I can help you too.

Don’t be humiliated or intimidated into inaction by your heroin charge. A lot of people have or have had trouble with possession or distribution of heroin and other opiates and go on to live normal lives. You may know a few already without even knowing it.

Police in Maryland are on the lookout for heroin more than ever. Rates of heroin abuse have climbed, and with the decriminalization of marijuana, narcotics units are focused on heroin possession and distribution like never before.

Narcotics detectives are trained to assume the worst. They draw a lot of negative inferences about your knowledge and your intent that may lead to you being charged even if you have not done anything wrong. For example, you may not have known the heroin was there, or you may not have had control of the heroin.

Even if you are truly responsible, I may be able to stop them from proving it. There are a lot of ways that I can get these charges resolved in your favor. They may have made a mistake leading up to the search of your house or car that renders the evidence against you inadmissible. They may not be able to prove that you knew the drugs were there, or that you intended to distribute them.

The maximum penalties for possession or distribution of heroin are severe, but I can help you avoid them. Possession of heroin (or any other controlled opiate) in Maryland carries a maximum penalty of up to one year in jail and a fine of up to $1000 for a first offense, with rising maximums for a second time offender of up to 18 months and $5000, and up to 2 years in jail and $5000 for subsequent offenses. Distribution of heroin, or possession with intent to distribute heroin carries a maximum penalty of up to 20 years imprisonment and a $15,000 dollar fine, and that’s just for a first offense! Subsequent offenses carry even higher maximum penalties, but there are also a lot of ways that I can help you escape both of them.

Call me at (301) 556-8709 now, because these charges are too important to face alone.
