Crimes in Georgia must be established beyond a reasonable doubt. They can be charged as misdemeanors or felonies. The defenses that may be appropriate to raise depend on the charge, as well as the circumstances. It is important to retain an experienced criminal lawyer in the Atlanta area to mount the strongest possible defense against the prosecutor’s case. Many defenses are procedural. For example, if you were pulled over without a reasonable suspicion and arrested for drunk driving, it may be possible to defeat the charge by bringing a motion to suppress the evidence obtained during the illegal stop. There are also defenses that are specific to certain types of crimes, such as violent crimes. In Georgia, there is a stand your ground law. This is a law under which someone who is being threatened by another person does not have a duty to retreat before employing force against the aggressor. The use of force is justified if a person reasonably believes that force is needed to protect them.
