Possession of Heroin

Have you been arrested for possession of heroin in Fort Worth or Tarrant County? It is very important to call an attorney and discuss your options. I am experienced at defending all manner of drug cases. I will consult with you and talk about your situation for no charge. The severity of your charge will depend on the amount of heroin in your possession.

Know that possessing any amount of heroin will be treated as a felony. An amount that is less than or up to one gram is a state jail felony, which carries a penalty of between 180 days and two years in a state jail facility, and up to a $10,000 fine. Although, probation is a possibility. As the amount increases, the charges increase quickly in severity.

Possession of Heroin is Pursued Aggressively – Call Me to Discuss Your Case

Heroin is a drug that police and the district attorney pursue aggressively. The penalties are severe. If you are selling heroin, the penalties are even more severe. In Fort Worth, prosecutors routinely bring charges for only trace amounts, such as the residue on a spoon. I have defended clients charged with a state jail felony for heroin amounting to several hundredths of a gram. This is an amount that is difficult for the eye to perceive, much less for the body to ingest. Fortunately, there are ways to attack the charges against you.

A Charge Does Not Mean Guilt – There are Ways to Fight. It is Important to Speak to an Attorney About Building Your Defense

There are always ways to fight your charges. To prove possession, the district attorney must prove that you had care, custody, control, or maintenance of some amount of heroin. This is not as cut and dry as it sounds. The district attorney must prove that you intended to possess heroin. It is crucial that you call me so we can discuss your case. In Fort Worth where I primarily practice, people who are facing a possession of heroin charge commonly believe they are guilty because they were caught with drugs. This is not necessarily the case. There are many ways to fight the charges against you. Call my office and we will discuss your case.
