Traffic stop leads to drug charges for Georgia man

Much like public drunkenness or underage possession of alcohol, drug charges largely come from someone being caught doing something. Many of the legal details when a prosecutor has the evidence to file charges come from how a person was caught while committing a suspected crime.

Many drug and alcohol charges happen when it is apparent that someone is acting under their influence. As a result, moving violations and traffic stops often result in additional charges when police suspect drug or alcohol use as a factor.

A 41-year-old man from Cartersville was stopped for a moving violation and ended up under arrest with drug charges. Police reported he was speeding on Georgia Route 1 and threw plastic bags of a green substance that looked like plant matter after he was stopped. The police officer suspected possession of drugs and recovered the bags.

The defendant is charged with tampering with evidence and possession of a Schedule I substance, both felonies, and several misdemeanors related to the traffic stop and possession. He was not allowed to post bond for pretrial confinement, so he may be spending time in custody while he awaits a hearing, trial or negotiations with prosecutors.

Suspects in drug cases and others accused of drug possession should always remember their right to legal counsel at all times, from an initial session of questions to any appearance in court. An attorney can fight excessive charges, work with prosecutors to drop accusations and defend their interests in court hearings. No one should have to fight criminal charges against them without the proper help.
