How can I defend against theft allegations?

Imagine you were shopping at a department store on a Saturday afternoon in Cumming. As you went to leave the building, however, the security guard stopped you and accused you of shoplifting. Even though the guard was mistaken, you're now facing theft charges in Georgia criminal court.

Shoplifting accusations increase during holidays

Georgia shoppers may have visited a local store in recent weeks, likely noticing how crowded many retail establishments are this time of year. Some stores even report that the place was so busy, no carts were available for customers. During hours when stores are busy, it is not unusual for retail establishments to ramp up security measures to prevent theft. Unfortunately, for some shoppers, the hectic environment can lead to accusations of shoplifting

Drug crimes? Maybe there's more to the story

Experts say the rampant abuse of prescription drugs has reached epidemic proportions. Across Georgia and the nation as a whole, law enforcement is on high alert, trying to stop drug crimes before illegal prescription drugs hit the black markets, often sold by drug dealers peddling other controlled substances. Many people think that, because a certain drug is available with a prescription, it is safe to consume, but if a person has not been prescribed medication by a doctor, they can be dangerous and are against the law, like other illegal street drugs.

Students home for the holidays prone to underage DUI enforcement

Georgia families may be preparing to welcome their children home for the holidays. Colleges and universities across the nation take a break from classes for a few weeks, allowing students the opportunity to return to their roots and visit old friends and loved ones. Many students look forward to catching up and often enjoy a night out with friends they may have been separated from since the beginning of the school year. Families need to be aware that the state has already issued a warning, and people accused of underage DUI could face serious consequences.

Frequently asked questions about domestic violence

No one ever said that having a family would be easy, but if you've been falsely accused of committing domestic violence against a relative, you probably feel like family life is one of the most difficult experiences anyone can endure. Regardless of how your domestic violence accusations came about, it's important to try and set your emotions aside and educate yourself on the issue at hand.

Woman charged with drug crimes after unrelated incident

By now, Georgia residents are well aware that the nation as a whole is in the midst of what many experts describe as an "addiction epidemic." Addiction to drugs is now considered by many medical professionals to be a disease, and some warn that many addicts will only suffer more if they are only prosecuted criminally and not given an opportunity for medical rehabilitation. Certainly, some people charged with drug crimes may have been involved in other serious criminal activity, but statistics show that a large portion of addicts are just regular people, struggling to live with their addiction.
