Alpharetta Misdemeanor Attorney

Experienced Defense Against Misdemeanor Charges in Forsyth County, Fulton County, Johns Creek, Sandy Springs & Cumming

If you've been accused of breaking the law but you haven't been charged with a violent crime or felony, it's considered a minor infraction or misdemeanor. Many people downplay the seriousness of a misdemeanor charge to make themselves feel better, but this is a big mistake. Georgia law is strict and can be difficult to deal with on your own.

If you've been arrested on a misdemeanor charge, you should seek legal counsel immediately. Our criminal defense attorney at Brian Hansford Law knows the finer details of the Georgia criminal justice system. As your representative, he will help you make a strong argument in your defense to help get the charges dropped or reduced.

Types of Misdemeanor Crimes in Georgia

Misdemeanors are lesser charges for mostly nonviolent crimes or unlawful behavior.

In Georgia, this can include:

  • Petty theft (stealing or shoplifting something worth less than $300)
  • Certain sex crimes (indecent exposure, prostitution, and sexual battery)
  • Some violent crimes (less severe instances of assault, battery, or stalking)
  • Public drunkenness
  • Resisting arrest
  • Conspiracy
  • Obstruction of justice
  • Disorderly conduct

Is a Drug Charge a Misdemeanor?

Georgia prosecutors also charge some drug offenses as misdemeanors. The difference between a misdemeanor drug charge and a felony drug charge depends on the type, amount, and weight of the illegal substances seized by authorities. Attorney Hansford can fight hard to combat the charges against you, whatever they might be.

What are the Penalties for Misdemeanors in Georgia?

A misdemeanor conviction can mean possible jail time, large fines, court-ordered financial restitution, probation, and/or community service. If you value your freedom and your reputation, it's important that you choose the right lawyer to take your criminal case.
