Most people go through some emotionally challenging times at some point in their lives. Sometimes it takes a strong person to remain in control during these periods. However, some people are not that strong and end up doing things they may regret later. One man in Georgia may have found himself in this predicament and is now in need of criminal defense.
The man was recently arrested in late May following a chase with police officers. Apparently, the police officers used a stun gun in order to finally capture the man and put him under arrest. The man is now being charged with kidnapping his own 5-year-old daughter. The suspect said that he had been upset about his wife taking his daughter away from him.
The 45-year-old suspect is also being charged with aggravated assault, cruelty to children, attempting to elude authorities and illegally possessing a firearm while being a convicted felon. He was also charged with possessing a firearm while committing a crime. The man is currently being held in county jail without bond. The suspect was also charged last November on drug charges and tampering with evidence, to which the man had entered a plea of not guilty in February.
However, now the man will have to consider how he would like to respond to the most recent criminal charges filed against him in Georgia. He will need to take a look at the evidence stacked against him in the context of the relevant laws in order to formulate a strong criminal defense strategy. Therefore, properly researching the applicable statutes and case laws will be essential in order to provide a credible and coherent argument in front of a judge in court.
