Richmond Hill & Hinesville Drug Crime Lawyer

Georgia Lawyers Fighting for Clients

Are you facing a drug crime charge in Georgia? Even a minor drug possession charge can have a negative impact on your future. With society's negative perception of illegal drug crimes, you can also face strained relationships with family and friends and the loss of a positive reputation. Law makers have taken great measures to make penalties for this charge severe enough to discourage further violations. Anyone who is charged with a crime involving an illegal drug or a legal drug used in an illegal manner will need the dedicated attention of our Richmond Hill criminal defense attorney.

Georgia Penalties for Drug Offenses

Under Georgia Criminal Code § 16-13-30, various factors will determine the penalty issued for the alleged offender's crime.

Some of the factors that hold the most influence include:

  • The amount of the drug
  • The type of drug
  • Whether minors were involved
  • Prior criminal history
  • The type of offense allegedly committed

Some of the drug crime charges that could be filed against you include possession, possession with intent, cultivation, distribution, manufacturing, and selling. The crime of drug trafficking consists of a variety of actions, including manufacturing, transporting, distributing, and selling. If you are convicted of drug trafficking in Georgia, you can face prison time, probation, and substantial fines.

The federal government has set in place minimum penalty guidelines that Georgia has adopted. This means that the judge cannot order a sentence that is more lenient than the minimum penalty. Many drug offenses are categorized as felonies in Georgia, and conviction can significantly damage your future.
