When to consider pretrial diversion

Many people facing criminal charges are surprised to learn that many prosecutors and judges are willing to consider alternatives to traditional sentencing, depending on the nature of the alleged offense and the other options available. These alternatives are known as pretrial diversions, and may remove a suspect from criminal prosecution before a trial takes place, allowing the suspect to participate in some other form of restitution for the alleged offense without receiving a conviction.

Felony possession with intent to distribute

When you receive charges of possession with intent to distribute in Georgia, it is important to understand the severity of your situation. You may face serious jail time and fines, even for a first-time offense, and in many cases may even face these charges as a felony rather than a misdemeanor. These are certain not charges you want to take lightly if you value your future freedoms and privileges.

Were you really “driving” when you received DUI charges?

It is not always clear whether or not you are legally safe to be in your vehicle after drinking, even if you do not believe that you are actually "driving" the vehicle. There are a number of factors to consider before you get behind the wheel of a vehicle after drinking, even if you simply need to rest for a while and wait for sobriety to return. In some cases, you may face DUI charges without actually operating the vehicle on a road.

Can I file criminal charges against someone for a wrongful death?

When you lose a loved one unexpectedly, it is always difficult to know how to respond. In many cases, it is possible to bring a wrongful death suit against some party that you believe bears responsibility for the death, but such lawsuits do not carry the weight of criminal accusations. If you win a wrongful death lawsuit, which is similar to a lawsuit you may file after receiving an injury in a car accident, you may receive compensation for your losses.
