Those accused of a crime may find it beneficial to remember that they will remain innocent until -- and only if -- proven guilty in court. However, prosecutors often attempt to submit various types of evidence against an accused individual during court proceedings, such as surveillance footage of the alleged incident. A 26-year-old man is currently facing accusations of armed robbery after a camera allegedly caught him in the act at a local convenience store in Georgia.
The potential consequences for criminal charges generally depend on the severity of the alleged crime. Those involving violent acts, such as armed robbery, are serious in nature and can have a significant impact on an accused individual should a conviction be obtained. A man in Georgia is currently facing similar charges after allegedly robbing a Goodwill store.
High schools across the country often have various clubs that are supported via fundraisers and donations. Without this extra funding, some of these programs may be unable to continue operations. When an adult within the program is accused of taking some of this funding for personal use, he or she could be facing severe penalties. A woman has recently been accused of the theft of thousands of dollars from a drama club in Georgia.
Facing felony accusations can be a stressful and challenging process. Individuals who are suspected of crimes of this nature often face severe consequences, with a conviction often including a lengthy prison term. Individuals who are convicted of theft may also be required to provide restitution for stolen property to the victim. Two deputies in Georgia are facing a similar situation after they were recently arrested and accused of the theft of county property.
A spokesperson for an historic fire station in Georgia said substantial property damage occurred during recent crimes. Deputies say someone broke into the old firehouse and stole many items.
