Criminal charges possible after incident at Georgia high school

Because of recent events involving shootings at schools across the country, many school administrators in Georgia are vigilant about the potential for gun violence. While this concern is understandable, it could leave those people facing a complicated situation if they carried a gun on campus by accident. Unfortunately, a man may face criminal charges after he was accused of doing just that.

The incident happened on a day in late January at a Georgia high school. According to reports, a male who is not enrolled at the school entered with a gun. It is unclear whether the person had the appropriate licenses to carry the gun or why he entered the school with it, but the school was placed in lockdown as a result.

However, reports indicate that there was no "ill intent" in the action. Despite this, state law prohibits guns on school campuses, even if the carrier has proper licenses. Initial reports indicate that the man was a parent; however, a spokesperson for the school denies that account. Both the man and a male student were taken into custody.

Unfortunately, the criminal justice system can be overwhelming. Regardless of the criminal charges, a person taken into custody in Georgia may be unsure about his or her rights and the implications of any information supplied to police officers. However, an experienced defense attorney can help those suspected or accused of a crime fully understand their options. Such a professional can help protect clients from unlawful treatment and take appropriate action if such treatment occurs.
