Dozens of Georgia correction officers face criminal charges

Cell phones are the center of years-long federal investigation into possible illegal behavior in some of Georgia's state prisons.

Most recently, a number of corrections officers and inmates were indicted on these allegations.

Local Georgia mayor jailed for criminal charges

A Georgia mayor is currently behind bars after being arrested by police officers in his own town. Police believe that he operated a local government vehicle while under the influence of alcohol, although he never actually submitted to any type of blood-alcohol content testing. Although these are not the first criminal charges that the mayor has faced, prior accusations should not play a role in current criminal proceedings.

Alleged fake cancer diagnosis results in criminal charges

Georgia police arrested an area woman after claiming that she preyed on the generosity of others in order to gather donations for herself. Her criminal charges consist of one felony and one misdemeanor charge, although authorities have mentioned the possibility of the misdemeanor later being elevated to a felony. Whether that actually happens will not be clear until the investigation is completed.

Criminal charges filed against Georgia woman suspected of heist

U.S. Marshals recently took a 24-year-old woman into custody on accusations of committing multiple jewelry store heists.

Criminal charges filed against 4 people believed to be siblings

Police in Georgia arrested four out-of-state residents on allegations that they were attempting to steal private information from debit cards.

According to reports, all four people arrested are siblings, the youngest of whom is only 13 years old.

Former police Captain faces criminal charges for sexual assault

Allegations of sexual assault or abuse are usually handled quite seriously, and for good reason. While protecting victims is an important aspect of pursuing these types of criminal charges, the defendant must also be protected from unfair judgment and wrongful accusations by the public and media. For instance, a Georgia official who was recently arrested for alleged sexual misconduct is still entitled to his rights, including the presumption of innocence according to the law.

Young teen unable to post bond for criminal charges

Despite a teenage boy's description as a young, panicked individual, a Georgia judge denied setting bond for the 16-year-old defendant. Facing criminal charges for the death of a 19-year-old, the prosecution claimed that they were worried the defendant might fail to return to show up his for court date or even try to intimidate certain witnesses. However, without any criminal record, it is unclear exactly why the prosecution requested that he not be granted the opportunity to post bond.

7 Georgia teens facing criminal charges for murder, robbery

A handful of Georgia teens have their future on the line following the filing of criminal allegations against them.

At least some of the seven charged teens are still students in high school, the youngest of whom is 17 years old.

Teenager faces criminal charges for damages at Georgia Wal-Mart

A middle-Georgia Wal-Mart suffered significant damages following what police say was a mob-like attack by local teenagers.

According to a Wal-Mart estimate, the damage totaled about $2,000.

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. However, he will not be requiring any criminal defense in the near future as the charges have since been dropped.
