Were you accused of either of these serious drug crimes?

If you look at the number of criminals who are currently serving long-term prison sentences as a result of a nonviolent drug crime, the statistics are astounding. Perhaps the most distressing part of this is the fact that prison is no place for peaceful, nonviolent people. There are many difficulties and dangers that a convicted person will face in a prison environment.

To avoid getting in trouble with the law and potentially being sent to prison as a result of a drug crime conviction, it's important to understand what constitutes a drug crime. Here are two of the most common drug-related crimes that could land someone in prison:

1) Manufacture and delivery of drugs

It doesn't matter if you are creating drugs in a chemical laboratory, if you are simply helping to sort through the various ingredients used to create drugs or if you are in the process of growing drugs on a farm. Participating in any part of the process of creating illegal drugs could result in a drug manufacturing charge. Taking drugs across town -- i.e., delivering them -- is also a crime.

2) Trafficking drugsTrafficking crimes come with the most serious punishments in the event of a conviction -- three years to life in many cases. Trafficking charges relate to the idea that the accused was engaged in more wide-scale drug distribution, usually to smaller-scale dealers who then resold the drugs within their own local networks.

If they can successfully navigate their drug crimes defense, defendants in Georgia may be able to sidestep spending a long time in prison as a result of a conviction. If you've been accused of any kind of drug-related offense, our law firm can help you determine your options and protect your legal rights.
