Arrested for Heroin Possession in The Buffalo Area? What to Expect

Heroin use in the Buffalo area has grown  in very  recent years.  Highly addictive and inexpensive  to buy, it has become the drug of choice for many people.  If you have been charged  and are facing heroin charges in the Buffalo Area, there are some important facts to keep in mind regarding your case.

First of all, New York state  has some of the toughest and most complex  laws regarding the sale and possession of heroin.  It is important that you find a criminal defense lawyer with the experience needed to guide your case through the courts.   Don’t try to attempt to navigate this on your own.

 A good lawyer can be the difference in receiving a lesser  sentence than what you could have received.
Secondly, your sentence, if found guilty,  will be based on a lot of different issues  from your case.  Your previous criminal history, how much heroin was in your possession, and if you were selling it, — all contribute to what sentence you will get  Be certain you have all the advantages afforded to you by the law.  All cases have their own individual circumstances and needs, make sure your lawyer is aware of all aspects of your situation.

In the Buffalo area,  most people strike a plea agreement in order to avoid trial, in fact, most heroin cases never go to trial.  Your lawyer will fight to win you the best plea deal available, helping you avoid trial and further costs associated with it, while also most likely getting you a reduced sentence. Don’t take chances with your future—make sure you have a criminal defense lawyer that understands how the system works, how to negotiate pleas, and has an extensive knowledge of the law.
