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.
