Why You Need a Tough Defense to Heroin-Related Charges

An opioid epidemic is sweeping across the United States, and many people in Connecticut are impacted by the events of this rising issue. One outcome is a higher number of people in Bridgeport, CT and nearby areas, like Norwalk, CT, charged with sale or possession of heroin. Harsh punishments for heroin-related charges are similarly more frequent.

Connecticut is one of the remaining states with a mandatory minimum sentence for drug crimes, including heroin possession. It is a felony here in Bridgeport CT. A heroin possession lawyer must fight for an acquittal to avoid this mandatory sentence, as charges for heroin possession could lead to:

  • For a first offense: a fine in the amount of $50,000 and 7 years in state prison;
  • For a second offense: a fine in the amount of $100,000 and 15 years in state prison; and
  • For a third offense: a fine in the amount of $250,000 and 25 years in state prison.

Additionally, if you are found in possession of a large quantity of heroin or in the same location as a large quantity of heroin, the prosecutor could charge you with trafficking, not simple possession. This is a more serious charge that requires a highly experienced drug lawyer, such as the team at the Law Offices of Alexander H. Schwartz.

What Our Clients Are Saying

I had Alex in a very messy divorce. I didn’t get everything I wanted, but he explained to me why I couldn’t have it all. He explained every decision I had to make so when it was over I understood how I got where I am. His fees were lots less than many of my friends paid for their divorces and I’m really happy with how quickly he answered emails and text messages.
