Columbus Heroin Charges Lawyer

Criminal Defense Attorney for Heroin Drug Crimes

Heroin is a Schedule I controlled substance, the most serious classification for drugs that are considered the most dangerous and with the highest potential for abuse, as well as no recognized medical uses. Because heroin is a Schedule I substance, the penalties imposed for a conviction for any type of criminal offense related to this drug will be harsh. Generally, possession of any amount of heroin will result in felony charges, whereas with other controlled substances a defendant may only face misdemeanor charges for simple possession.

Contact a Columbus Criminal Attorney to Discuss Your Case

Though the odds may seem against you, a competent lawyer may be able to develop a defense strategy that effectively exposes weaknesses in the evidence or witness testimony that the government has prepared. For example, what if heroin was found in your possession but the search that uncovered the drug was conducted in violation of your constitutional rights? Your attorney may be able to use this to file a motion to suppress this evidence.

That is just one example of what may be done to turn the tables in your favor. Contact a Columbus heroin charges lawyer at our law firm today to discuss your case and how we can help you.
