When we are in trouble, we often seek to avoid the situation, hoping to prevent consequences from occurring. However, evading the situation could result in more penalties. When authorities believe that a motorist has violated the law, law enforcement will likely pull the vehicle over. When a driver fails to follow this cue, this could devolve into a much more serious situation.

Initiating a defense against marijuana drug charges

The term, drug charge, is usually one that makes a person think of hard drugs and harsh penalties.

Defense actions against a drug crime charge

Nothing is worse than being accused of something that you did not commit. Whether you are at the wrong place at the wrong time or were misidentified as part of the alleged crime, drug crimes are serious offenses and are treated as such. Thus, those accused of such a crime may not have to suffer the consequences associated with it. If a defendant did not in fact commit the alleged crime, he or she is able to assert a legal defense.

Having legal assistance for any arrest for charges linked to drugs is vital and should be first and foremost on the person's mind.

How does the drug court program work in Georgia?

Pleading guilty to a criminal charge is not often an ideal step for defendants to take. However, for some individuals in Georgia facing drug charges, pleading guilty could have some advantages.

Being pulled over by law enforcement is not always a major deal. Minor traffic violations and constantly suspected, and it is rather routine for police officers to stop vehicles to further investigate the matter. What is not a common or minor situation, however, is when a traffic stop turns into a much larger criminal matter. But if law enforcement suspects that something illegal might be going on following a traffic stop, this could cause them to further investigate the matter.
