TRIAL ATTORNEY ELIZABETH GABA WILL TAKE YOUR CASE IN YOUR CITY

Trial Attorney Elizabeth Gaba accepts drug cases and will defend individuals who have been charged with possession, trafficking, distribution, offering to sell, offering to purchase, and usage of heroin in any of its various form.

Attorney Gaba will accept drug cases and defend people in Central Ohio (such as Cambridge, Columbus, Circleville, Chillicothe, Dayton, Delaware, Lancaster, London, Marysville, Mt. Vernon, Newark, and Zanesville). She will also accept these types of cases in locations that are farther away (such as Athens, Cleveland, Marietta, Portsmouth, and Youngstown by way of example).

PENALTIES FOR HEROIN TRAFFICKING AND SIMILAR OFFENSES

Depending upon circumstances, the penalty for TRAFFICKING IN HEROIN can vary from an F-5 (fifth degree felony) to a F-1 (first degree felony). Incarceration in a state penal institution may be as brief as six to twelve (6 to 12) months for an F-5 conviction and as high as eleven (11) years for an F-1 felony conviction.

Some of the factors that go into the criminal charging of a person will include: (a) the form of the drug i.e. powder, liquid, solid, or tincture, (b) the gross weight of the drug, (c) where the drug transaction took place i.e. in an isolated rural farm area or adjacent to a school (d) the age of the party with whom the transaction was to take place i.e. an adult or an under-aged individual.

It is most standard that a police officer at the time of a drug bust will not only issue a citation for TRAFFICKING IN HEROIN he will most likely issue citations additionally for: (a) possession of drugs [to be retained for one‘s personal use and not sold] (b) corrupting another with drugs, (c) illegal assembly or possession of chemicals for the manufacture of drugs, (d) possessing drug abuse instruments, (e) possession of drug paraphernalia and similar charges. These additional charges can range from a first degree felony to a fourth degree misdemeanor.

When a prospective client telephones attorney Gaba’s office and says, “I’ve been charged with a heroin type crime . . . . How many years am I looking at - if I’m convicted?” Attorney Gaba honestly says “Without more information I can’t really answer your question at this time.”

When a prospective client makes an appointment and arrives at Attorney Gaba’s office and says “I’ve been charged with a heroin type crime . . . . How many years am I looking at -- if I’m convicted?” Under these circumstances Attorney Gaba can say, “Let us work together and look at all the factors, and I can give you a reasonable estimation.”

The phrase that is used over and over again in Attorney Gaba’s office is “NO CASE SHOULD BE CONSIDERED HOPELESS”. Just because a person is charged with a drug crime, he/she shouldn’t guess that the case will end with a conviction!

DEFENDING YOURSELF FROM DRUG CHARGES

If a person who has received a criminal complaint or a copy of an indictment paper does nothing he/she will be convicted. IT IS MOST CRITICAL THAT AN ACCUSED PERSON HIRE AN EXPERIENCED ATTORNEY AS SOON AS THEY POSSIBLY CAN. Heroin is a central nervous system depressant. It relieves pain and induces sleep. Heroin addicts have an almost uncontrollable addiction. To make matters more confusing, when a person is in a heroin stupor (high), they are in a dreamlike state of warmth, well being and serenity. IT IS CRITICAL THAT A DEFENDANT HIRE AN ATTORNEY AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
