No criminal defense necessary for Georgia veteran

When an innocent individual is in trouble and needs help, the vast majority of people in Georgia would likely jump into action to render aid. One community believes that is exactly what one veteran did, although his action ultimately landed him briefly behind bars.

Former marine back in the headlines for criminal charges

A former marine with the U.S. Marine Corp recently made his way back into headlines following a traffic stop in Georgia.

Federal authorities arrest debt collectors on criminal charges

Americans are taking on more and more debt, and consumers in Georgia are no exception. With a 2.1 percent increase in household debt in the latter part of 2013, it may not come as a surprise to learn that some of these Americans struggled with making payments on some of their debt. When a company is unable to collect on a debt, it sometimes sells it off to a debt collection agency, who then seeks to collect on it. While this is not an uncommon activity, some debt collectors in Georgia are now facing federal criminal charges.

Father, son's criminal defense claims they didn't commit crime

A Georgia man claims that the only thing that he and his son are guilty of is trying to be helpful. Georgia police apparently say differently, as the two have been charged for transporting a deceased bear to another state.
