Suspicion of drug crimes doesn't mean police can abandon protocol

When Georgia law enforcement officials conduct investigations, they are required to follow certain protocols and procedures to ensure that they do not violate the rights of those people suspected of wrongdoing. The adage that police are there to "protect and serve" extends to those accused of crimes, not just those believed to be victims or innocent. For instance, when police conduct searches regarding suspected drug crimes, they cannot violate the right against an unreasonable search and seizure.

Would you pass the test when it comes to open container laws?

Socializing is a large part of the college experience here in Georgia and around the country. As such, many of the gatherings for college students tend to include alcohol. Violating the state's open container laws could jeopardize your college career and your future.

Suspected shoplifting leads to accusations of robbery

The laws of Georgia recognize varying degrees of theft. An individual may be accused of misdemeanor shoplifting, which ordinarily has less harsh penalties than the crime of robbery even though they each may share elements that prosecutors must prove beyond a reasonable doubt before a person can be convicted of either. Evidence of both types of theft will be necessary in a case of suspected shoplifting gone bad at a department store. 

Several staying in a motel ended up arrested for drug possession

Was it a case of wrong place, wrong time? Only time will tell. Some Georgia motels seem to have an inordinate number of illicit activities going on in them, but that does not mean that every occupant partakes in them. Motels are public places, and previous occupants could leave behind any number of items. Depending on the circumstances, it is possible that unwitting guests could end up facing charges for drug possession or other crimes.

2 men in Georgia accused of drug crimes following traffic stop

For some people, a traffic stop in Georgia is a relatively routine procedure. They are pulled over, and depending on the reason for the stop, they receive a citation and continue with their day. However, a recent stop turned into something more, and now two men face accusations of drug crimes.
