Fearless at Trial. Fighting Criminal Charges to Win

Heroin & Opioid Offenses in North Carolina

Trafficking, Sale, Manufacturing & Possession Defense Lawyer in Raleigh

America is in the throes of an opioid epidemic, which has resulted in both lawmakers and law enforcement cracking down on crimes involving these powerful drugs. Because heroin, opium and synthetic and natural opioid derivatives are among the most dangerous and addictive substances available, offenses involving these drugs are prosecuted aggressively.

Penalties for Trafficking in Opium or Heroin

You can be charged with trafficking opium or heroin if you sold, manufactured, delivered, transported or possessed these substances, either directly or by assisting another person in doing so.

If you are convicted, the penalties for this offense depends on how much of the drug was involved:

  • Between 4 and 14 grams: Class F felony; 70 to 84 months in jail, mandatory minimum $50,000 fine
  • Between 14 and 28 grams: Class E felony; 90 to 117 months in prison, mandatory minimum fine of $100,000
  • 28 grams or more: Class C felony; 225 to 229 months in prison and a mandatory minimum fine of $500,000

If you or a loved one is being investigated for or charged with a drug crime, you need to begin working on a defense strategy right away.
