Client with Possession of Heroin Charge Gets Diversion Program

T.M. is a 25-year-old male with no prior criminal history. On or about January 9, 2014, he was stopped and arrested for possession of heroin. In Ohio, a possession of heroin charge is a felony of the fifth degree, which is punishable up to 12 months imprisonment and a $2,500 fine if convicted. On behalf of T.M, Attorney Antony Abboud filed a Motion for Intervention in Lieu (ILC), pursuant to the Ohio Revised Code Section 2951.041.

T.M was given a mandated drug assessment by the courts, who ultimately decided that he was a good candidate for ILC. On April 1, T.M was granted ILC and all proceedings in his case were ordered stayed. Once T.M successfully completes the standard court drug program, all of his charges related to the possession of heroin, including his arrest record, will get expunged and sealed from his record.
