Defend yourself because drug charges can add up

Georgia, like most states, has its own way of handling criminal acts. From the possession of a weapon to drug charges, Georgia has laws that dictate how you'll be charged and potentially how you'll be sentenced.

With federal charges, you're dealing with a double blow. A federal case faces federal charges and penalties. Federal offenses, usually felony charges, often come with long prison sentences and severe fines.

Georgia is tough on drug offenders

Did you know that possessing any kind of narcotic Schedule II drug or any kind of Schedule I drug can be punished with up to 15 years in prison? Subsequent offenses can be penalized with up to 30 years in prison. That's just for possession. That doesn't consider what would happen if you were accused of trafficking or manufacturing drugs.

Why is it important to defend yourself against federal charges?

It's always important to defend yourself when you're accused of a crime, no matter what that crime is. Part of the reason is just to make sure that you're treated fairly. It's also important that you don't face more charges than you should. For example, if you are only in possession of drugs, should you really face charges for trafficking them? The prosecution might try to have those charges filed, but your attorney will fight back.

The reality is that the criminal justice system isn't always fair. You need to take steps to protect yourself, so that you're treated appropriately throughout the process and don't have your personal rights or liberties violated by the actions of the police or others in the criminal justice system. Our site has more information on this important topic.
