Facing Heroin Possession Charges
The state of Texas has taken a very aggressive stance against drugs like heroin in an effort to limit the use of the illicit substance. With the full weight of the state drug laws behind them, prosecutors will do everything they can to achieve a conviction against you if they believe that you possessed any amount of heroin. As such, you will need to do everything you can to protect yourself from the possible consequences of a conviction upon these charges.
Possible Penalties for Heroin Possession
Since the possession of any amount of heroin will automatically be pursued as a felony offense, the stakes for you and your family will be very high no matter what the exact circumstances of your situation happen to be. Bearing that in mind, the possible consequences of even the least of these charges, a state jail felony, may include:
- 180 days to two years in prison
- $10,000 in fines
- Designation as a felon
