The consequences of cocaine offenses in Georgia

In the state of Georgia, the act of possessing, selling or trafficking cocaine is illegal, just as it is in the rest of the United States. Georgia tends to treat drug charges relatively harshly in comparison with other states; therefore, any charge relating to cocaine should be taken very seriously by the defendant.

Can police search your car for marijuana at a traffic stop?

The state of Georgia recently passed a "decriminalization" bill. There are many misconceptions surrounding this bill, with some local residents assuming marijuana is now legal in the state. In actuality, the bill simply decreases some of the penalties for marijuana possession. For instance, a person found with less than one ounce of marijuana cannot go to jail or face a fine greater than $75.

Fatal crash results in vehicular homicide, DUI, more charges

In April 2017, a 64-year-old man lost his life when the moped he was on was allegedly struck by a Nissan Maxima near the Dean Forest Bridge on Ga 204. A 45-year-old woman was arrested for following too closely and for DUI. The man died at the accident scene.

When weight loss surgery errors are malpractice

Losing a loved one to complications from surgery is a heartbreaking experience, and one that nobody should ever have to go through. Surgery for weight loss, such as gastric bypass surgery, carries with it many risks, but it is performed with the intention of improving someone's health. Complications can easily arise from such a surgery; however, it is the responsibility of the hospital staff to mitigate the risks and to make the decision not to perform the surgery if the patient is too high-risk.

Common types of surgical errors

A surgery does not have to be highly complicated to present danger. Even routine surgeries can result in injuries and even death when health care providers act negligently. While sometimes complications can arise unexpectedly and unavoidably, at other times the hospital could have prevented the injury by following proper standards of care.

Drug charges could lead to treatment in Georgia

When you have been found in the possession of drugs, the consequences can be serious and have the potential to affect the rest of your life. If you were found in the possession of a substance that was serious enough to lead to a felony, you may face problems in getting a job in the foreseeable future.
