Georgia teacher arrested for more than mere drug possession

Georgia's teachers are human. They make mistakes and even get arrested periodically for a variety of offenses. However, one Georgia teacher faces much more than basic drug possession charges after a officials allegedly found approximately $6 million worth of what they believe to be heroin and cocaine in the home in which she was living. 

Underage drivers accused of traffic offenses need representation

Having an underage driver in the house makes life easier and more complicated at the same time. Their autonomy provides Georgia parents with more freedom, but it also raises insurance rates and causes concern for their safety. In addition, police sometimes target underage drivers and charge them with traffic offenses as a result of a stop.

Dealing with false allegations of family violence

True cases of child abuse should be dealt with by law enforcement and the criminal courts. However, not all allegations of family violence are true. Allegations of abuse could arise in contentious child custody battles when one party believes that such accusations will bolster his or her position in court. Georgia residents who have reason to believe that they could face false accusations of child abuse should take steps to protect themselves.

A marijuana charge can keep your child out of college

The cost of college has risen substantially over the last few decades. Unless your family has been saving for years or is particularly affluent, chances are that your teenage child will need some student loans or other forms of student aid to pay for college. If your child is facing a marijuana possession charge, you need to speak with an attorney as soon as possible, and not just a public defender. Your child's future and hopes of a college education may very well depend on the quality of representation you are able to obtain. With a conviction, chances for federal student aid all but disappear.

Prescription drug charges send pill mill participants to prison

Doctors are supposed to have the best interests of patients in mind and even take an oath not to harm their patients. However, authorities accused one Georgia doctor of failing to live up to that oath when he was charged with colluding to sell prescription medications to people with no medical need for them. Recently, he was convicted of prescription drug charges along with seven other people.

Don't let shoplifting or theft charges steal your future

If you are in college or otherwise just beginning your life here in Georgia, you do not need an arrest or conviction on your record that could jeopardize your future. A criminal record could prevent you from furthering your education, limit your employment opportunities or keep you from qualifying for a security clearance if you wish to work for a government agency. Even charges such as shoplifting or theft could derail your plans for the future.
