The Resurgence Of Heroin
Heroin has made a resurgence back into our community. Pain management has often resulted in the long-term use of strong prescription medications. When these prescriptions are cut off, more people have turned to heroin. What may be needed rather than a prison sentence is drug rehab.
North Carolina prosecutors are tough on these crimes and it may take the advocacy of a skilled criminal defense attorney to obtain needed treatment and fight the criminal penalties. Before speaking to anyone, contact an attorney who understands not only the law regarding heroin offenses, but the effects of heroin addiction and how that may relate to your drug use and arrest.
At Randall & Stump, PLLC, we are committed to standing up for your rights. These are multifaceted cases that often require a detailed, individualized strategy to protect you and your future. Our attorneys have extensive experience defending clients against drug charges in the state courts of North Carolina.
Fighting For Your Interests
The types of punishments you are facing if convicted of a heroin charge are dependent on the amount of the drug that was allegedly recovered, where it was located, and the activity related to your possession of the drug (for example, possessing the drug versus selling the drug). This also affects the type and severity of the charges that are filed.

- Possession with intent to sell/deliver
- Delivery or sale
