Teacher arrested on Georgia campus faces felony drug charges

Individuals who are accused of a crime may face numerous hardships, even if a conviction is not obtained. Allegations alone can have an impact on one's reputation in the community, and may even affect his or her employment. A part-time teacher at Kennesaw State University has recently been arrested on campus, and is reportedly facing multiple drug charges in Georgia as a result.

Campus police claim to have found the man passed out in the KSU student center at around 10 p.m. When questioned by authorities, the man allegedly admitted to consuming several beers before driving to the campus. Police assert that he gave them permission to initiate a search of his vehicle, which allegedly unearthed the presence of various types and amounts of regulated controlled substances, along with an open container of alcohol.

He was taken into custody and is reportedly facing three felony drug charges in relation to the incident. The penalties for similar charges are severe, and if convicted, he would be facing serious consequences, potentially including a lengthy prison term. He may also have trouble obtaining employment in a similar field in the future, which can be devastating.

When accused of felony drug charges, an individual might benefit from seeking counsel before responding to allegations. By speaking with a defense attorney, a client in Georgia could obtain advice on making informed decisions throughout the process. An attorney can evaluate the charges and evidence against a client and assist in forming a strong defense. If a conviction cannot be avoided, an attorney can assist in pursuing a lesser sentence during legal proceedings.
