Defending Heroin Charges in Illinois

It does not take much heroin for you to wind up facing felony drug charges in Illinois. Under State law, it is illegal to possess any amount of heroin, and possessing larger amounts could result in more serious charges, such as intent to distribute or trafficking. Heroin possession is a felony that is punishable by up to $25,000 in fines and significant jail time, depending on the amount of heroin:

  • Less than 100 grams - 4-15 years in prison
  • 100-400 grams - 6-30 years in prison
  • 400-900 grams - 8-40 years in prison
  • Over 900 grams - 10-50 years in prison
  • These penalties could increase further if a person had a gun in their possession at the time of their drug arrest.
