Illinois Drug Felony Defense Lawyer

Heroin is a highly addictive drug that is processed from opium, a naturally occurring compound that can be extracted from certain types of poppy plants. It is one of the most dangerous and destructive recreational drugs in the world. Because it has no recognized medical use and has a high potential for abuse, heroin is listed as a Schedule I controlled substance under the Illinois Controlled Substances Act. Due to the drug's classification as a Schedule I drug, heroin-related crimes are aggressively prosecuted, and those who are charged with such offenses face lengthy prison sentences and expensive fines.

There is no such thing as a minor heroin-related charge. Possession of even a single gram of heroin is prosecutable as a Class 4 felony, punishable by 1-3 years in prison and fines of up to $25,000. Possession of a larger amount or charges related to the sale, delivery, manufacturing, or trafficking of heroin will result in even more serious charges and more severe penalties—up to 60 years in prison for certain sales and trafficking charges.
