Penalties For Drug Crimes

If you are arrested and charged with a drug crime on either side of the river, you face very serious penalties. Both Georgia and South Carolina have harsh punishments for those convicted of possession, trafficking or manufacturing drugs. These include mandatory sentences of anywhere from six months to 20 years and fines of up to $1 million, depending on where you were arrested, what kind of drug you are accused of possessing, the amount and whether you have prior offenses on your record.

Our attorneys handle cases involving these and other drugs:

  • Cocaine
  • Heroin
  • Marijuana
  • Prescription drugs
  • Methamphetamine
  • Molly
  • Ecstasy

Examining the evidence against you is key in our defense. We look for potential issues with the arrest or other ways we can suppress evidence or have your case dismissed entirely. In some situations, first offenders may be able to go through drug court and complete a program that will remove all charges from their records.

We explain all of your options and counsel you regarding their possible consequences. We are honest with you about what may happen and how it will affect the rest of your life. While there are no guarantees, we do everything we can to prevent prison time and other penalties.
