Drug Charges Archives

When drugs are planted in your vehicle

We have covered many different aspects of drug cases, but some are especially upsetting. For example, some people who are completely innocent find themselves facing drug charges even though they have never possessed an unlawful substance. There are a number of ways in which this can happen, but one example involves law enforcement officials planting drugs in a person's vehicle. Unfortunately, it can be very hard for some people to prove their innocence and these charges bring a harsh stigma that can shatter their lives permanently.

How does a drug conviction affect financial aid for college?

If you live in Georgia, have been convicted of a drug-related offense and want to go to college, you may have some hurdles to contend with. A big one is that your ability to receive financial aid is cut off for a certain period of time, and this means higher education is financially unattainable for many students. 

Facing charges as a drug addict

Drug charges affect people from various walks of life, from those who are very wealthy to those living in poverty. However, the consequences of a drug charge can make life very difficult for anyone, regardless of their circumstances in life. Some people in Atlanta and across the state of Georgia find themselves in legal trouble over drug-related charges that stem from a drug addiction. Whether someone is addicted to cocaine, opiates or some other substance, daily life can be challenging for many reasons and these charges can make life even harder.

Peer pressure and drug charges as a teen

If you are in high school or college, or you are a young person who is surrounded by friends who like to party or push the limits, it is very important to be aware of some of the risks you may face. Aside from being hurt in a car accident, there are other ways you may suffer. For example, if your friends consume illegal drugs, you could find yourself in trouble if they are pulled over or searched by a law enforcement official. In fact, you could find yourself facing drug-related charges even if you were not taking drugs or directly participating in the unlawful behavior.

Drug offenses and child custody cases

If you have found yourself in the middle of a dispute over child custody, you may be facing an especially difficult time in your life. Unfortunately, for some people this stress and depression, along with potentially being unable to see their child, can increase the likelihood of substance abuse. The situation may then snowball out of control as someone is charged with a drug-related offense, which could have a negative impact on their child custody case, and lead to even more depression and anxiety. If you have found yourself in this position, it is crucial to go over your options and try to take steps to turn things around.

When your teen is accused of a drug crime

Drug-related charges can be incredibly hard, as we discussed in a recent blog post which looked at the challenges parents may face when they find themselves in this position. However, parents may also face difficulties if their child is accused of an offense involving drugs, from the distribution of an unlawful substance to the possession of illicit drugs. It is extremely important to handle these allegations appropriately and understand just how much is at stake. In Atlanta, and cities all around Georgia, this can be overwhelming for parents and teenagers alike. However, the way in which these cases are handled can have a major impact on a young person's future.

Dealing with drug charges as a parent

When someone is dealing with drug-related charges, the entire situation can be overwhelming and generate a lot of uncertainty, whether they are facing relatively minor charges or major charges that could result in many years behind bars. Moreover, some people may have an especially difficult time in this position, such as a parent. There are a number of ways that drug offenses could affect you as a parent, such as having a negative impact on your child custody case. As a result, it is vital to be carefully prepared for potential outcomes and do what you can to protect your future.

Can drug charges affect student loans?

On this blog, we have gone over many of the different ways that drug charges can turn someone's life upside down. However, there are particularly problematic consequences for people in certain positions, such as college students who are worried about how the allegations they are facing may affect their ability to finish the degree program they are enrolled in. If you are accused of a drug-related offense and have no idea what to do next, it is especially important to review any unique aspects of your case or personal circumstances.

Addressing drug possession allegations

We have discussed a number of drug-related offenses on our blog, ranging from very serious charges to those which may not be as serious (such as possessing drug paraphernalia). However, charges related to the possession of unlawful substances are quite common and have upended the lives of many people in Atlanta and across all of Georgia. To make things worse, some people have had to deal with these charges even though they were innocent.

Drug Charges: Facing charges over drug paraphernalia

Drug Charges: In many posts on this blog, we have written about various drug-related topics, from those involving the manufacturing of drugs to distribution and possession. However, there are other charges involving drugs that people find themselves facing, such as the possession of drug paraphernalia. While some people may not think that these charges are too serious, the consequences can be very damaging in a number of ways. Whether you have been charged with possessing drug paraphernalia or are facing drug-related charges of any other kind, going over your legal options right away is vital.
