Opium Charges

Let Us Handle Your Southern Minnesota Opium Defense

Opium is a highly addictive narcotic and it is on the list of controlled substances in Minnesota. A person that is found in possession of, selling, or distributing any opioid can face some very serious criminal charges.

One of the issues is that opium is highly addictive because it gives its user a feeling of euphoria that is followed by a sense of well-being and calm. This is why they are highly sought after throughout Minnesota and the country. They depress the central nervous system like any narcotic does, but can cause life-threatening respiratory issues. Heroin is considered an opioid and it has been associated with a number of fatal overdoses in Minnesota over the past couple of years.

Mankato Opium Defense Attorneys

If you have been charged with an opium-related drug crime, then you have the right to defend yourself with the help of a highly experienced Mankato drug crimes attorney. With the help of a skilled attorney, you can receive the right conclusion in your case, such as rehabilitation over prison time or reduced charges that minimize the consequences. In some cases, charges can be dismissed if the circumstances warrant dismissal.

Advocating For Your Future

Because possession is a common charge in regard to opioids, it is typically because an individual possesses it for personal use. In this case, the goal is rehabilitation over punishment. Sometimes punishment is combined with rehabilitation. Nonetheless, we want to see clients who are addicted to heroin and other opioids recover from the addiction and have a productive future. Many individuals who have been addicted to narcotics will overcome their addiction and move on to be successful.

If the crime has to do with sale or distribution, then we fight for a reduced charge so that the penalties are reduced. We understand that people make mistakes, but that does not interfere with the right to a comprehensive defense that is designed to get results.

Penalties include jail time, fines, drug rehabilitation, and other penalties deemed appropriate by the law, but they can be minimized as much as possible.
