Teacher and others face drug charges after bust

Any accusation involving drugs could lead to serious consequences. Penalties for a conviction of drug charges in Georgia may range from fines to time in jail.  A recent arrest in Hall County has resulted in numerous charges for three people.

The Hall County Sheriff's Office reports that a 28-year woman and a 24-year-old woman have been arrested regarding drug charges. The women were arrested at a house where several weapons and drugs were reportedly found. The 25-year-old brother of the younger woman is also being sought by police.

Police reportedly found 1 kilogram of heroin as well as 61 kilograms of cocaine in their search. Supposedly, the value of the drugs was estimated at $6.2 million. Two semi-automatic assault rifles were said to have been discovered at the home as well.

The 28-year-old woman was a teacher and a soccer coach at a local middle school.  The county school district is cooperating with the sheriff's office to conduct an investigation. The two women face charges, including trafficking and possession with the intent to distribute cocaine and heroin. In addition, they have been charged with possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony. The man will apparently face similar charges when he is located by the police.

Because of the seriousness of drug charges in Georgia, someone facing these accusations has the right to contact a criminal defense attorney immediately. An experienced lawyer will help those accused evaluate the situation and develop the best defense possible. A strong legal team will advocate for their client and work toward minimizing the negative impact on someone's life.
