Common Drug Charges
All controlled substances in Georgia are divided into “schedules” based on their potential for dependency and abuse. The severity of the charge is based on which “schedule” the drug falls into and the amount of drug.
Some common drug-related charges include:
- Drug trafficking
- Manufacturing of drugs
- Possession of drugs with intent to distribute
- Possession of drugs
- Possession of drug-related objects
Forfeiture Of Property Connected To The Crime
Even if it’s just your first conviction for a drug crime, penalties can be severe. Any crime involving drugs may also result in the civil forfeiture of property connected to the crime. This often involves the state seizing money or vehicles. Depending on the charge, you may also be required to serve mandatory prison time and pay large mandatory fines.
A skilled criminal defense attorney can review the details of your case and help advocate for your rights while you’re going through the legal process.
