Fighting Heroin Charges In Illinois
The more dangerous and more addictive the drug, the harsher the penalties and the more aggressively police will pursue arrests. Heroin is a Schedule 1 drug, meaning the potential penalties for possession, trafficking and distribution are at their highest. Possessing even a small amount of heroin could result in felony criminal charges.
When the stakes are this high, it is very important to proceed carefully and with the guidance of an experienced defense lawyer. Depending on the facts of your case, I can employ defense strategies such as:
- Challenging elements of police procedure such as the search and seizure of heroin and heroin paraphernalia
- Arguing you were not in possession of heroin
- Identifying lab and chain of custody errors
- Seeking reduced sentence or alternative sentencing when appropriate
The strategy I employ on your behalf depends upon the unique factors of your case. Whatever charges you face, I will provide you with the experienced guidance and tenacious advocacy you need at this critical time.
