Experienced Defense On Your Side In Drug Charge Cases
Sometimes people are charged with drug offenses even though they had no knowledge the drugs were present. You may not be aware that you must carry prescription pills in the bottle in which they were dispensed, or a written prescription for the pills.
Contact Robert Duffee, a Carrollton drug charges attorney who can discuss your case and determine whether you may be able to have your charges reduced or dismissed. You need to speak with an attorney so you can make an informed decision about important next steps.
Size Matters During An Arrest
The state of Georgia bases drug charges on the amount, location and type of drugs found. For instance, heroin and marijuana are very different drugs, but if the amount of marijuana found is more than 1 ounce, both can carry felony charges. If the amount is less than an ounce, it’s a misdemeanor.
Although misdemeanors carry a lesser sentence than felonies, a conviction of any kind can have a serious and lasting impact on your life. In Georgia, drug possession is taken very seriously and judges can impose severe fines and harsh sentences.
Defense For Crimes Involving Meth
Meth manufacturing has exploded — sometimes quite literally. Producing methamphetamine is a growing problem, and one technique referred to as “shake and bake” involves the use of exceptionally volatile chemicals.
Meth labs are found in homes, sheds, hotel rooms and trailers. It is usually quite obvious when drugs are being produced, but some people have been arrested and charged even though drugs were not being produced while they were visiting the location.
If you have been charged with a criminal case of drug possession and are convicted, you could be facing a fine of thousands of dollars, incarceration and/or loss of driving privileges, child custody, financial aid and the right to vote or carry a gun.
