The Scope Of Georgia Drug Offenses

Georgia’s Controlled Substances Act applies not only to illicit drugs, such as cocaine, heroin, marijuana, and LSD, but also to other controlled substances, including prescription drugs. Various factors help determine the charges that may be brought upon an individual for possession or other crimes, as well as their associated penalties. These factors can depend upon the type of drugs involved, the amount of drugs, and additional situations. Generally speaking, the following constitute the main categories of drug crimes:

  • Possession of drugs.
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia.
  • Possession with intent to sell or distribute.
  • Drug trafficking.
  • Drug manufacture.

Drug charges can range from relatively minor, from simple possession to serious state and federal felonies. The sentences for these crimes can also vary, from many years of incarceration to costly fines and other penalties. In addition, penalties can compound when multiple charges are sought.

If you are facing charges for violation of the Georgia Controlled Substances Act, you need experienced and competent legal assistance to help you understand the charges you are facing, help you evaluate your options, and defend you.

David O'Reilly

My family and I moved to Roswell from Chicago over ten years ago. At that time, we were referred to Tom to assist us with some of our legal needs. Since then he has become a trusted friend we consider to be our family attorney. The comfort in being able to speak candidly with him and know that he understands our concerns is invaluable. Tom is a man of integrity, vast experience (more than 25 years), who has an exceptional knowledge of the law. Impeccable ethics and an unparalleled work ethic make him an outstanding attorney who is capable, though, and diligent. I recommend him highly to anyone in need of sound legal counsel.

Corey Rennolds

At all times for the duration of my case, Tom demonstrated professionalism, confidence, and honesty. At no point was I pressured to make any one decision over another, but Tom did his best to inform me about the consequences and benefits of all of my options. If he did not know some specific detail regarding my case, he made the effort to find out. Tom instantly exudes trustworthiness and was always in steady contact. I would recommend his services to anyone.

I met Tom over 10 years ago after settling in Roswell with my family. I have learned over the years that Tom is a man of high integrity, genuine and extremely knowledgeable in his field. Along with being honest, he is a straight shooter and will let you know where you stand. He will provide you with personal attention you don’t get at bigger firms and will go the extra mile. As legal matters can be frightening to deal with, Tom will guide you through the process and get you the results you need. You couldn’t ask for a better person to be fighting for you.
