Criminal Defense Attorney Serving Georgia
Criminal law deals with the government prosecution of an individual for acts classified as crimes as well as the rights of an accused person and the criminal process, including arrest, arraignment, grand juries, pleas, discovery, pretrial hearings, trials, jury selection, evidence, motions, and post-trial remedies.
Unlike a civil suit, which involves cases arising from breach of contract, car accidents, debt collection or boundary disputes, for example, where parties argue about money, services or the right of one party to do something to which the other party objects, in a criminal case, either the State or Federal government brings criminal charges, accusing an individual of a crime. Conviction of a criminal act results in punishment as prescribed by law. Punishment reflects the severity of the crime and may be a jail sentence or a combination of both fines and imprisonment.

Frequently Asked QuestionsWhat’s the difference between a police stop and being arrested?
Police may stop and question you, although you have the right to refuse to answer. While a stop detains you for a short time, you are not moved to a different location as with an arrest. In order for police to make an arrest, they must have “probable cause,” which means there must be a reasonable belief a crime was committed and that you were involved in the crime. If the police arrest you, they take you in to custody and you may not leave.
