A trafficking conviction where a person is charged with transporting 18 grams or more of heroin will lead to a 3.5 to 20-year jail sentence as well as $5,000 to $50,000 fines. These penalties will rise with larger amounts of the drug, and for those charged with trafficking 200 grams or more, the penalty is 12 to 20 years in prison and fines of $50,000 to $500,000. Heroin drug convictions are often considered felony convictions and they will often remain on someone’s criminal record for many years.
