Pair arrested after undercover operation in Tift County

It's hard enough to keep yourself going in Georgia without being harassed by the law. Although police and prosecutors have a very important job keeping the Peach State safe, any excess by law enforcement officers can do more than ruin someone's day. It can lead to improper arrest and unwarranted jail time.

A pair of people were arrested in Tift County after a protracted investigation by local law enforcement authorities. A 31-year-old man and a 33-year-old woman, both from Ty Ty, are faced with a variety of charges related to drug possession and possible intent to distribute. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) had been trailing the pair for three months before the arrest.

Evidence against the defendants includes a purchase of methamphetamine by an undercover officer from one of them, which became the probable cause for a warrant. One of the issues related to these sorts of investigations is the similarity to entrapment, which should not lead to a conviction for affected defendants.

An entrapment defense in Georgia relies on three conclusions. First, the crime must have originated with the undercover officer. Second, the officer must have induced the crime. Third, the defendant must not have previously been disposed to committing the crime in question.

People charged with drug crimes who suspect entrapment have the right to build a defense around that belief. An attorney can help advise on the likelihood of this defense's applicability as well as prepare its presentation to a judge or jury. No defendant should have to deal with criminal charges without the right professional help.
