Georgia man accused of several felonies after domestic incident

In many ways, it is amazing to consider how one incident can ultimately completely alter the course of a person's life. A person charged with a crime, for example, will likely be left creating new plans for their future. One man in Georgia may be doing so following his recent arrest; he is now accused of multiple felonies and misdemeanors.

Police claim that they became involved with the man when they received a phone call about a domestic incident at approximately 6:30 a.m. on a day in early July. The caller reportedly claimed that a man had been physically violent while under the influence of drugs. Reports indicate that statements made by children at the home and physical injuries on a woman indicated physical abuse.

However, when police approached the home, the man is said to have refused to open the door and, instead, turned off the lights. Officers say they entered the home forcefully and discovered the man wrapped in sheets under a bed. A taser was reportedly used to subdue him. Felony charges against the man include cruelty to children in the first degree, possession of a knife during a crime, kidnapping and false imprisonment while misdemeanor charges include reckless conduct, obstruction of justice during the investigation of a crime, disorderly conduct, battery under the family violence act and disorderly house.

The charges against the Georgia man are serious. If convicted of the felonies and misdemeanors, he could face significant consequences. To ensure that the man fully understands the charges against him as well as his options for responding against them, he may want to have an experienced criminal defense attorney on his side. With such help, he may feel more confident in the decisions that he must make in the coming weeks and months.
