Heroin Lawyer in Akron
Charged with heroin possession?
Drug crimes carry some very severe penalties if you are convicted. Heroin
and similar drugs (ecstasy, LSD, illegal prescription medications) are
never legal, and if you are caught selling, possessing, or trafficking
any of them, your future will be drastically changed.
At my criminal defense law firm in Akron,
Christopher G. Thomarios, Esq. LLC, clients can find dedicated representation. I have over 10 years of experience
in successfully defending clients charged with
drug crimes. I know that just because you have been charged with a crime does not
automatically mean you are guilty.
My Approach to Your Case
When defending a client charged with possession or trafficking in heroin,
I conduct a thorough investigation into the facts of the arrest and surrounding
circumstances. It is not enough to rely on police reports or even some
witness accounts. I pursue my own in-depth investigation, which can also
include utilizing independent witnesses who conduct their own examinations
of the drug in question.
It has happened that a person has been charged with trafficking in heroin,
and the "heroin" was found to be a different substance. Other
defenses can include challenging whether the police followed established
procedures in their investigation and arrest, the credibility of witnesses,
and many others.
Penalties for Heroin Possession
A conviction for possession or trafficking of heroin is serious. You could
be facing 6 months in jail to as much as 10 years or more in prison, with
fines ranging from $2,500 to $20,000. You would also incur a criminal
record, putting a significant barrier to future opportunities. You need
skilled representation with an experienced attorney who puts your rights
and freedom as priorities.
When you want to maximize your chances of avoiding jail or prison,
