Portland man charged with possession of heroin, other drugs

Drug charges are serious legal matters that can impose significant hardships on the lives of Portland residents. A single conviction for a drug-based offense can mar a person's record and stand between him and better employment and other positive opportunities. For this reason, individuals who must confront criminal drug charges often enlist the help of experienced criminal defense attorneys.

For this reason, individuals who must confront criminal drug charges often enlist the help of experienced criminal defense attorneys.

A local man may choose to utilize the services of a lawyer when he begins his fight against a myriad of drug charges. The man was arrested by Portland authorities after he was allegedly found with heroin and methamphetamines in his possession, as well as other paraphernalia that suggested to law enforcement officials that he may be involved in selling or distributing the drugs to other people.

In all, the man faces 14 criminal counts, including some based on allegedly endangering his own children during his apparent drug crime pursuits. If he is convicted of the charges brought against him he may face serious penalties such as time in jail.

Drug crimes like drug possession, drug trafficking, and drug distribution are all penalized in different ways. A person's sentence for a drug crime may depend on any previous convictions he has on his record as well as a number of other factors related to his alleged criminal activity. However, all individuals who are charged with drug crimes have the right to defend against the charges brought against them. Lawyers who provide criminal defense services to their clients are often good resources for individuals facing allegations of drug crimes.
