Heroin Charges in PA – Sentencing & Penalties in Pennsylvania

Know Your Rights. Fight Back.

A simple possession of heroin conviction, no matter how small the quantity, could lead to prison time, even for first offenders.

If you have been charged with heroin possession, this does not mean that you will definitely have to go to jail.

An arrest is not a conviction.

WHAT A HEROIN ATTORNEY CAN DO FOR YOU

A skilled heroin attorney will look at all of the alleged facts in your case. In order for you to be arrested there had to have been probable cause. If it was found that your arrest stemmed from an illegal search, your charges will be dismissed.

Oftentimes people who are charged with heroin possession are struggling with addiction. An aggressive attorney may be able to persuade the District Attorney to allow you to enter a drug treatment program instead of serving in prison.

Options exist like The Allegheny County Drug Court Program, which is a rehabilitative program that can shorten your sentencing.

The Probation without Verdict Program (PWV) is another option which could allow your charges to be dropped completely and your criminal record expunged.

It is important to have an aggressive and experienced attorney on your side to fight for your acceptance into these programs.
