Heroin Addiction and NKy Crime

As a criminal defense attorney in Covington, Newport and Florence, I have been practicing criminal law in Northern Kentucky for over 20 years.  In that time, a large number of cases involve or stem from drug abuse, alcohol and drug trafficking.  Nevertheless, heroin is the most often discussed and most addictive drug that has been introduced in the last 20 years, and likely in history.

Following is a case report from Drug Free

Warning: Even a single dose of heroin can start a person on the road to addiction.
Many people experiment with heroin thinking, "I'll try it once or twice. I can always stop." But those who start down that road find it nearly impossible to turn back. Consider the words of Sam, a 15-year-old addict: "When you first shoot up, you will most likely puke and feel repelled, but soon you'll try it again. It will cling to you like an obsessed lover. The rush of the hit and the way you'll want more, as if you were being deprived of air--that's how it will trap you."
The threat of addiction is not the worst consequence of experimenting with heroin. Jim was 21 years old and usually spent his evenings drinking beer with friends. He had already experimented with heroin so when friends offered him a line to sniff, he accepted. Fifteen minutes after inhaling, he passed out, then dropped into a deep coma which lasted more than two months. Today, he is confined to a wheelchair, unable to write, barely able to read. Whatever dreams and aspirations he once had are gone.

If you have a child in need of help, you can institute a Casey's law case to mandate treatment through the courts.  If you or a loved one is in criminal trouble, contact an attorney who has handled many cases dealing with drugs and can help through the criminal process AND help get treatment.  In Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky, contact Michael Bouldin at 581-MIKE, 859-581-6453 or email at [email protected]
