What is a Heroin Distribution Charge in New Jersey 2C:35-5

Lawyers Commentary: Heroin Distribution NJSA 2C:35-5(b)(4) or (5) is the possession off Heroin for more than your personal use. By law in New Jersey the State need not prove that the defendant’s knowledge of the quantity of heroin, only that he/she knowingly possessed heroin. *Although, the law states that the quantity must be at least 1/2 ounce, this is not a set in stone figure and if other evidence exists to show that the heroin was going to be sold the quantity number may be reduced. An example where the quantity may be less than 1/2 oz commonly occurs when a person is caught with 15 hits of heroin and a large stash of cash or additional empty glassine bags are found. However, heroin distribution must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt and many times this charge can be won by an experienced heroin defense lawyer.
