Most people in Georgia can likely recall when a suspected attempted robbery ended in the death of a young toddler. One of the two boys involved in the incident was only 15 at the time and was also the last to be charged. Although he initially faced felony charges, it appears that a careful articulated plea deal with the prosecution in addition to his full cooperation with the authorities has altered the outcome.
After pill mills began appearing in Georgia, police started to crack down on the illegal trade.

Often times someone is charged with a crime simply because they were in the wrong place at the wrong time. Even if that is the case however, a strong criminal defense is still needed for that person in order to show their innocence or to mitigate the charges.
