Baltimore Heroin Lawyer
Each of these new developments has combined to raise the cost and decrease the availability of the once abundant painkillers. A 30 mg oxycodone may still cost a couple bucks at a pharmacy, but instead of selling for ten dollars on the street it now sells for twenty. It is more risky for dealers to sell oxycodone and other narcotics, and more expensive for users to buy them. There is still a demand though for hard drugs, and while painkillers are disappearing from our streets, heroin is showing up in record numbers. Heroin is making a renewed appearance all over Maryland but the areas that seems to be affected the most are the Eastern Shore and Baltimore City. Arrests for possession of heroin and possession with intent to distribute have skyrocketed in the last year or two in Baltimore. City cops have been making large distribution drug busts, as well as hundreds of simple possession arrests. Benjamin Herbst handled heroin cases in Baltimore and the surrounding areas and is standing by to offer a free consultation about your case. If you have been arrested for one or two capsules you will likely be charged with a misdemeanor. But if you or someone you know is arrested with more than five or six individually wrapped capsules, the chances are that felony possession with intent to deliver charge will follow. This is an extremely serious charge that requires immediate attention by an experienced criminal lawyer. The penalty for a heroin felony can include considerable jail time even for a first offender, but The Herbst Firm will fight relentlessly to keep you out of jail and a conviction off your record.
