What's Up With Morphine in Northern Kentucky?

Recently there have been a number of arrests for possession of controlled substance (PCS) in Northern Kentucky for Morphine possession.  The charged may also face felony charges for PCS as well as other sanctions.  If the offender has children, the court will likely file juvenile neglect/abuse petition and seek removal of the children. Morphine and heroin have taken a large rise in the Boone, Campbell and Kenton counties in 2013. In November, News 5 had an article on Heroin replacing pain pills in Kentucky.  Anyone who sits in felony court will see countless heroin and morphine cases, whether on first option or on review for violation of probation.  Recently, in Grant County, a defendant had intentionally hurt himself so that he could receive morphine at the hospital.  While on the morphine pump, he injected heroin into his IV.  He is lucky to be alive, even though he is being sentenced by the Circuit Judge for violating his probation. KRS 218A.050 defines morphine as a Schedule 1 narcotic. It is punishable under KRS 218A.1415.  A first time offender is facing a D felony, punishable by 1-5 years in the state penitentiary.  A first time defendant may be eligible for deferred prosecution, diversion or probation.  The use of an experienced criminal defense lawyer is essential in obtaining the best results for your case.  Remember, the best results for your case may be treatment and the best results for someone else may be different. If you have been arrested for possession or distribution of morphine, heroin or any other crime, contact Michael W.
