Criminal charges are stressful for anyone. However, facing criminal drug charges can be even more stressful for those in the public eye. This is definitely true for professional athletes who end up being arrested and charged with crimes for one reason or another. One professional basketball player is now facing this situation after being charged with drug crimes in Georgia.
The law can be harsh for those convicted of drug crimes. Recently, arrests were made following a six month long sting operation that purportedly focused on cracking down on drugs sold to minors. It was reported that 21 people will be facing drug charges in Georgia.
Drugs are dangerous substances and many can be quite addictive. One of the most addictive and dangerous illegal drugs is methamphetamine. Two individuals are facing Georgia drug charges after police initiated a traffic stop.
For various reasons, certain types of drugs are illegal, while other types of drugs are legal, and some types of drugs are only legal under certain circumstances. For example, if a person is caught in Georgia with legal prescription drugs without a proper prescription, he or she can find him or herself being arrested by law enforcement. This can result in a person having to face drug charges that can carry serious consequences.
Unexpected things can happen during a raid by law enforcement. Many times when the police are investigating one crime, they unintentionally find evidence of another crime instead. This seems to have been what what happened in a recent incident in which law enforcement were looking for a murder suspect. Instead, they ended up arresting two individuals on drug charges in Georgia.
Illegal drugs can be detrimental to a person's health and personal life. They can also cause serious legal problems. This is particularly true for selling and distributing illegal drugs. Four individuals were recently arrested on drug charges in Georgia.
Drug Charges: Most teachers are committed to the well-being of their students. In fact, many put in extra hours to help tutor their students to help them be successful in school. However, police claim that a social studies teacher in Georgia was actually allowing teenagers to come to her house to smoke marijuana instead of receiving tutoring.
Marijuana can come in various forms. One new form of marijuana, known as "ear wax," is becoming more common in some parts of Georgia. However, no matter what form of the drug one is in possession of, it is still against the law. Eight individuals found this out after they were recently arrested on drug charges during two separate drug busts by law enforcement officials.
When undercover operations lead to the execution of search and arrest warrants, arrests often quickly follow. This was the case for two Georgia residents who were arrested in late October on drug charges. The charges stem from an ongoing investigation by undercover members of a law enforcement narcotics team.
A mayor and police chief may have his job on the line after a series of criminal accusations. The Georgia mayor has been accused of soliciting young men for sex. He was charged with sex crimes including solicitation of sodomy and theft.
