A felony or misdemeanor drug conviction can have serious, lifelong consequences. You can lose your job, your money, and your freedom. An experienced local criminal defense lawyer can help you make the right decisions at every stage of the case against you.
Law Enforcement aggressively patrols the highways and Interstates throughout middle Georgia for illegal drug possession and distribution. They routinely conduct traffic stops for minor violations and then investigate possible drug crimes. Law Enforcement agencies in Morgan County, Greene County, Newton County and Taliaferro County particularly employ highly trained drug interdiction units along the I-20 corridor.
Local Police and Sheriff’s Offices also investigate street level drug sales and distribution, sometimes using confidential informants or undercover officers to build a case against one or more persons. Drug penalties in Georgia are severe and can result in life in prison for repeat offenders. It is not uncommon in Morgan County or Greene County Superior Court for a person convicted of drug sales or distribution to receive 20 years or more in prison.
If you are charged with a Drug Possession offense, your Fourth Amendment rights against unreasonable Search & Seizure are of the utmost importance. They can be the only thing between you and prison for a long, long time. If your rights were violated during your arrest, the case against you could be dismissed by winning a Motion to Suppress and thereby preventing the State from using certain evidence against you at trial. As a former prosecutor and former Public Defender, Michael Fulcher conducted many motion to suppress hearings in Superior, Magistrate and Probate Courts over the last ten years in practice.
