What Penalties Am I Facing?
Under the law, any possession of heroin is a third degree felony. This means you will be facing more serious penalties and consequences than you would for more minor drugs. Even just a trace of heroin found in a pipe in your possession could land you behind bars.
If you are convicted of a heroin possession (under 10 grams), you could face:
- A maximum of 5 years of probation
- Around $5,000 in fines
- Up to 5 years in prison
- Driver’s license suspension
For amounts exceeding 10 grams, penalties are much steeper. Offenders could face a first degree felony conviction, bringing a maximum of 30 years in prison and $10,000 in fines.
If convicted of sale or delivery of heroin, you could face:
- Up to 15 years in prison
- A maximum of $10,000 in fines
- Up to 15 years of probation
Similarly, if the amount exceeds 10 grams, it can result in an increased sentencing of 30 years and $10,000 in fines for a conviction.
