The Experience You Need To Fight Drug Charges
The state and federal governments are continuing to fight the “war on drugs.” These days, technology has changed, but the idea remains the same: Arrest people for drugs of any kind and prosecute them to the fullest. Law enforcement may try to use a confidential informant or a wiretap to find out information. It’s possible that there will be a traffic stop with a dog search or maybe a search warrant for a piece of property or a house.
Regardless of how the investigation goes, I will thoroughly examine the evidence and prepare the case for trial. I’m Georgia criminal defense attorney Keith Fitzgerald, and I have over 13 years of experience defending people. When you come to Fitzgerald Law in Macon, we will discuss how to build your strongest defense given the circumstances. You can rely on my trial experience and negotiation skills.
I Handle All Types Of Drug Cases
I can defend you against drug charges such as:
- Possession with intent to sell (also called “simple possession”)
- Selling and distribution
These charges have harsh penalties that can send you to jail or prison, depending on the facts of the case. In some instances, I can help clients get into a pretrial diversion program that keeps them out of jail. In general, these programs are for first-time offenders of nonviolent crimes. When we discuss your case, I will tell you whether this applies to you.
I have experience defending people charged with drug crimes involving:
- Marijuana, which is still illegal in Georgia
- Cocaine or crack cocaine
- Prescription drugs and opioids
Additionally, you can be charged with stealing a prescription pad or carrying prescription drugs without the original bottle. With prescription drug use skyrocketing, these crimes are prosecuted harshly.
