Drug Crime Lawyer in Savannah
Under Georgia Criminal Code 16-13-30 the severity of the penalties upon conviction of a drug crime depends upon a number of factors. The amount and type of drug, whether minors were involved, prior criminal history, and the type of offense alleged to have been committed or intended will all be considered. Common drug charges include possession, possession with intent,
distribution, cultivation, manufacturing, trafficking and sales. Most drug crimes are felonies which can result in lengthy prison sentences. Providing illegal drugs to minors or using minors to distribute will result in a more severe sentence.
Drug crime charges do not always reflect the actual intent of the person arrested. A prosecutor can file charges based on deduction. For example , an individual who has a supply of marijuana for personal use only is arrested in the vicinity of a school could be charged with possession with intent to sell to minors which is a far more serious charge than simple possession. It takes a highly skilled drug crime lawyer to untangle complex drug cases and increase the possibility of a favorable case outcome.
