Facing Charges For Drug Possession, Sale Or Trafficking?
Drug charges have consequences that can last a lifetime. Depending on the type of charge — and the substance involved — you could face penalties ranging from probation, to intensive drug court, to lengthy prison time.
Georgia law establishes two main types of drug charges.
- Drug possession charges involve drugs found on your person, in your vicinity or elsewhere that allegedly belong to you.
- Depending on the circumstances and the quantity involved, you could face related charges of drug trafficking, distribution or possession with intent to distribute.
- Drug sales typically involve an exchange that was observed by a police officer. Sting operations are also common.
- All of these types of charges rely on a critical piece of evidence: the drugs themselves. In many cases, police obtain the drugs through a search. They might have searched your vehicle during a traffic stop, for example, or stopped you on some suspicion of criminal activity.
The circumstances of the search and seizure can potentially hold the key to your defense. If the police violated your constitutional rights by conducting an unlawful search or seizure, you may be able to get the evidence thrown out.
