Charges for drug possession could be a plea for help not jail

It often starts innocently enough. An individual tries a drug for the first time in the company of others doing the same thing. Some of those people will walk away from that experience with nothing more than a hangover, but others become addicted after repeated use. At some point, he or she may receive the attention of Georgia law enforcement official and ends up facing charges for drug possession.

Don't believe these things about traffic violations

At some point during the time that just about everyone with a license drives, they will be stopped by police and given a ticket. Nearly everyone has advice for Georgia residents regarding what to do when it comes to traffic violations. Much of that advice could actually work against them if they decide to do what their friends and family told them.

What does Georgia law say about stalking?

As tempting as it may be, a Georgia resident may want to avoid following a former spouse around town or simply watching in a manner that could be conceived as menacing or harassing. That former spouse may just call the police and accuse the other party of stalking. Of course, an individual does not just have to physically follow or watch a person in a way that incites fear to be accused of this crime.

Common defenses against theft charges

Were you accused of theft or larceny? If someone accused you of stealing something that wasn't rightfully yours, you might be facing criminal allegations in court. Perhaps someone is claiming that you took his or her bicycle unlawfully, or maybe a department store is saying that you stole an expensive article of clothing.

What penalties could you face for drug possession in Georgia?

Police officers initiate traffic stops for a variety of reasons such as speeding, failing to signal a lane change and other traffic violations. Many people drive off with a warning or a ticket, but some end up under arrest because an officer finds drugs in the vehicle. When this happens, the accused individual may begin to wonder what penalties a conviction for drug possession could bring here in Georgia.
