Heroin Drugs Charges

Corona Drug Crime Lawyer

Heroin: A Schedule I Drug

Hanson, Gorian, Bradford & Hanich has a long history of successfully handling the defense of clients charged with all types of drug crimes under the Controlled Substance Act. This Act regulates the possession, manufacture and distribution of narcotics, stimulants, depressants, hallucinogens, anabolic steroids, and chemicals used in the production of controlled substances.

Heroin is classified as a Schedule I drug, along with cocaine, meth, Ecstasy, PCP and LSD. The penalties for a crime involving Schedule I drugs are most severe. If you have been charged in California with a heroin offense we urge you not to go against the prosecution without representation from a Corona drug attorney who has experience in effectively defending clients charged with drug crimes.

Contact us and we will examine the evidence against you and give you a fair evaluation as to the best way to move forward so that your rights are preserved and your freedoms safeguarded.

Drug Attorney in Corona

For someone who has been convicted of a crime involving heroin, cocaine, meth or Ecstasy, the penalties can be extremely harsh. Depending on the amount of drugs confiscated, a first offense could result in a prison term of up to 20 years plus fines. If convicted of two previous offenses, you could be facing life in prison under the Three Strikes law. Our firm has been successful at getting penalties reduced or even dismissed by confronting the prosecution's case on many levels.

Some of the ways that we can challenge the elements of their case include:

  • Having the evidence against you thrown out of court due to illegal search and seizures
  • Determining your eligibility for alternative sentencing such as a diversion program, drug court or Proposition 36 if this is your first offense and no violence was involved

Accusations of committing controlled substance crimes are very serious and convictions can irrevocably affect one's future in a negative manner. To get the help you require to defend yourself, you need the assistance of an experienced criminal defense attorney at our firm. Under the direction of Attorney Chuck Gorian, we will do all that is possible to help you protect yourself and your way of life.
