It is no secret that alleged drug crimes are aggressively prosecuted at both state and federal levels in Georgia. Many incidents involve law enforcement agents searching a person’s private residence or vehicle. Being present in a location where drugs are found does not constitute grounds for a possessions charge. Anyone facing such drug charges is advised to consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney so that an investigation can be conducted to determine whether specific charges are appropriate to the situation.
