State law allows for heavy penalties to be imposed upon any person alleged to be in possession of between 4 and 14 grams of heroin. It will be assumed that you intended to traffic to sell the drug if are accused of being in possession of specific quantities. The mandatory minimum sentence is 5 years in prison. For cases involving more than 14 grams but less than 28, the penalty is increased to 10 years, and a fine imposed of $100,000. For 28 grams or more, the mandatory minimum sentence is 25 years, with a fine of $500,000. These are serious legal problems that demand the highest quality defender is involved.
