Understanding the Legal Process for Drug Crimes

Being charged with a drug crime can be a daunting experience, but understanding the legal process can help alleviate some of the uncertainty. Our experienced drug crime attorneys in Dallas, GA are well-versed in the legal proceedings and can guide you through each step of the process.

Key aspects of the legal process for drug crimes include:

  • Arrest and booking
  • Arraignment and bail hearings
  • Evidence discovery and pre-trial motions
  • Trial or plea negotiations
  • Sentencing and potential appeals

Having a solid understanding of the legal process can empower you to make informed decisions and actively participate in your defense. Our team at Henrickson & Sereebutra is dedicated to providing you with the knowledge and support you need to navigate the legal system with confidence.

Types of Drug Crimes

Our defense attorneys handle drug crime cases of all kind, including:

The charge may be increased to possession with intent to distribute if you are caught with unusually large quantities of drugs. For example, a charge for more than 10, but less than 2,000, pounds of marijuana is punishable by up to 5 years in prison and a $100,000 fine. More serious offenses, such as sales, manufacturing, and trafficking, are generally charged as felonies. Prescription fraud is an increasingly common offense in our area, and our firm is prepared to handle even the most complex prescription fraud cases.

What are the Penalties for Drug Crimes?

Georgia state law provides harsh sentences for drug crimes of all types, but the sentence you could receive if convicted depends on several factors, including the type of drugs involved, the quantity of drugs, and the specific nature of the offense, as well as whether you have previously been convicted of a drug offense.

For example, if you are arrested for possession of less than an ounce of marijuana, you can be charged with a misdemeanor, fined $1,000 and sent to county jail for up to a year. Possession of greater amounts is a felony, punishable by up to ten years in state prison.

Creating a Solid Drug Crime Defense

There are many ways to defend drug crime charges, and you should not give up the case simply because the police found you with drugs in your possession. You have a Constitutional right against unreasonable search and seizure, so unless the police officer had a warrant or probable cause to search your person, your vehicle or your home, it may be possible to have the case dismissed on the grounds that it was a violation of your rights.
