Trustworthy Defense from an Annapolis Heroin Crimes Attorney
Protecting your rights in serious Maryland drug crimes cases
The rise of heroin usage within the state of Maryland has led law enforcement to take forceful steps at increased enforcement against the drug. If you have been arrested on a heroin charge, you need immediate assistance from a skilled Annapolis drug crimes attorney. My name is Gill Andrew Cochran, and I provide the residents of Annapolis and Anne Arundel County with an aggressive criminal defense. When facing serious criminal charges, turn to Drew Cochran, Attorney at Law to obtain representation from a compassionate and experienced attorney who always considers your best interests.
Aggressive representation against heroin charges
The serious penalties of a heroin conviction require an aggressive defense. I am experienced at representing people accused of the following heroin charges:
- Possession. Possessing even a small amount of heroin is a serious offense under Maryland law. You could face up to four years in prison or a potential fine up to $25,000. If you have previous convictions, the court may double the penalties.
- Distribution and sales. The sale or distribution of heroin is a felony in the state of Maryland. Depending on the amount of heroin involved, a conviction could land you in prison for more than 40 years. If the sale was made to a minor or on school property, potential penalties are even higher.
- Trafficking and importation. Trafficking is the most serious classification of drug sales. It requires a large amount of heroin and may also apply to importing drugs across state or national borders. For the most serious offenses, the state may try to label you as a “kingpin.” A conviction can result in up to 40 years in jail and up to a million dollars in fines.
I can also assist you with charges involving cultivation, paraphernalia, and transporting. Each drug case is different. There’s no cookie cutter strategy that fits every situation. As an experienced Annapolis drug crime defense attorney, I work with you to determine the best game plan and outcome for your case.
Protecting your rights in Maryland Courts
A drug conviction can change your life forever, not to mention the lives of your family members. Even a misdemeanor can keep you from certain employment and educational opportunities. A felony conviction can keep you from getting housing, cost you a good job, and even cause you to lose voting rights. I understand that your rights are at risk, and I work hard to protect them. When you secure my services, you can rest assured that I am investigating every detail of your case and pursuing the best possible outcome for you.
