Salt Lake City Heroin Possession Attorney
No other drug invokes such negative feelings among the public as heroin. When prosecutors in Utah get the opportunity to convict a heroin dealer, they know they will have the full weight and resources of the community on their side.
Under Utah law, first-offense possession of any amount of heroin results in a third-degree felony charge, with a recommended minimum of three years in state prison. A second charge of heroin possession results in second-degree felony charges. A third or subsequent heroin possession offense can be charged as a first-degree felony and result in a possible lifetime prison sentence.
