Arrested for Heroin Use in Las Vegas?

Information on Heroin and Heroin Possession Laws

Heroin is a controlled substance, and is known for giving users a state of relaxation and euphoria. Users of heroin build up tolerance very quickly, as they must increase the amount consumed over time to achieve the same effect. Those who use heroin can develop a physical dependency or addiction to the drug. It is considered to be highly addictive, and is classified as a Schedule I drug, which means possession charges involving heroin are likely to be heavily punished. If you have been charged with possession of heroin, contact a Las Vegas drug crime lawyer today.

What are possible defenses for heroin charges?

In Las Vegas, drugs are very prevalent throughout the city, due to the nightlife atmosphere. We understand that many people who get arrested for possession may actually be good, hardworking people who have made a one-time error in judgment. In many cases, those accused of possession of heroin may have had no involvement with the drug at all, and be accused merely by being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

If a police officer arrested you without probable cause, or searched you illegally, your case could be dropped altogether. All of these issues should be evaluated at once by our law firm.

Associated Penalties

Justice Gavel StrikingHeroin possession may be classified as either a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the amount of the drug in your possession, as well as the circumstances of your arrest. If you are a first time offender, you may be viewed more leniently by the judge and prosecutors, but this is not always the case.

You could be facing:

  • Up to $20,000 in fines
  • Up to 5 years in prison

On the lower end, you could be dealing with $5,000 in fines and up to 1 year in jail for lesser offenses. Either way, your future is on the line. Do not hesitate to call Brown Law Offices at (702) 425-5183 today.
