What is Penalty for Heroin?

In Northern Kentucky, heroin is considered a schedule I narcotic, and possession is a Class D Felony. Class D felonies are generally punishable by 1-5 years in prison, however the newer regulations make this particular crime, PCS, punishable by 1-3 years in prison. In addition to the possible prison sentence, the courts are mandated to first explore other options, such as pretrial diversion, deferred prosecution, or probation.  Depending on criminal history of the defendant and any prior felony convictions or diversion cases, the defendant may have many options for counsel to explore. Possession of Controlled Substance is found in KRS 218A.1415 and takes into account all schedule I and schedule II substances. Regardless, if you are charged with PCS, whether heroin or any other controlled substance, you need to retain a criminal defense attorney.
