Types of Drug Crimes
Georgia state law provides harsh sentences for drug crimes of all types,
but the sentence you could receive if convicted depends on several factors,
including the type of drugs involved, the quantity of drugs and the specific
nature of the offense, as well as whether you have previously been convicted
of a drug offense.
For example, if you are arrested for possession of less than an ounce of
marijuana, you can be charged with a misdemeanor, fined $1,000 and sent
to county jail for up to a year. Possession of greater amounts is a felony,
punishable by up to ten years in state prison.
Our defense attorneys handle drug crime cases of all kind, including:
The charge may be increased to possession with intent to distribute if
you are caught with unusually large quantities of drugs. For example,
a charge for more than ten pounds of marijuana is punishable by up to
30 years in prison and a $100,000 fine. More serious offenses, such as
sales, manufacturing and trafficking, are generally charged as felonies.
Prescription fraud, an increasingly common offense in our area, is a misdemeanor.

Creating a Solid Drug Crime Defense
There are many ways to defend drug crime charges, and you should not give
up the case simply because the police found you with drugs in your possession.
You have a Constitutional right against unreasonable search and seizure,
so if unless the police officer had a warrant or probable cause to search
your person, your vehicle or your home, it may be possible to have the
case dismissed on the grounds that it was a violation of your rights.

defense attorneys in Marietta may help you find the legal solution you deserve!
