Cranston Drug Arrest

As reported by Maria Armental in the December 15, 2011 edition of the Providence Journal, a Providence man was arrested by the Cranston Police Department and charged with possession of heroin with intent to deliver. In addition to the new charge, the man was on probation for trespass and vandalism charges and will likely be adjudged a probation violator.

Pursuant to Rhode Island General Laws 21-28-4.01, it shall be unlawful for any person to manufacture, deliver, or possess with intent to manufacture or deliver a controlled substance.

The penalty imposed if convicted of drug possession with intent to deliver is based on the type of drug. All drugs or controlled substances are cataloged by schedule. Heroin is a schedule I narcotic. The penalties if convicted of possession of heroin with intent to deliver include:

(4) Any person, except as provided for in subdivision (2) of this subsection, who violates this subsection with respect to:

(i) A controlled substance classified in schedule I or II, is guilty of a crime and upon conviction may be imprisoned for not more than thirty (30) years, or fined not more than one hundred thousand dollars ($100,000) nor less than three thousand dollars ($3,000), or both.

If you or a family member has been charged with possession of a controlled substance, like heroin, possession of marijuana or other drug related charges, please allow Attorney Robert H. Humphrey's reputation, experience and skill to successfully guide you through the legal process. Contact Robert H. Humphrey at 401-816-5862 or e-mail him at rhh@rhumphreylaw.com.
