Georgia has extremely tough penalties for drug crimes. Prosecutors often use the threat of significant jail time to pressure drug defendants into accepting a plea deal. Unfortunately, pleading guilty to a drug crime will result in a criminal record that can affect you for the rest of your life. You may face loss of eligibility for student loans and other governmental programs. Potential employers may choose not to hire you based on a drug conviction.
Before you accept any plea deal, talk to an attorney at The Hawk Firm in Augusta. We are known for successful outcomes in drug cases. To discuss drug charges with an experienced defense lawyer today, call 706-724-8537. We handle drug cases in the Augusta area and throughout Georgia.
The following are examples of the types of drug cases we handle:
- Possession of marijuana, meth, heroin or other illegal drugs
- Possession of prescription drugs without a prescription
