What are the penalties for domestic violence crimes in Georgia?

Georgia's domestic violence statute was formally known as the Family Violence Act. It protects family members in the state from emotional, sexual and physical abuse at the hands of their relatives and loved ones. It applies to romantic partners, whether they're married or not. It also covers kids, whether they're blood-related, stepchildren or foster kids and their parents. This piece of legislation also covers other people who formerly resided in the same home with one another. Individuals who violate this law face stiff penalties for doing so.

What evidence is needed to prove a forgery charge in Georgia?

You studied photos of Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa, sketched it and painted your own version. It's a really good likeness of the world's most famous painting –- so good that you hang it over the fireplace of your Georgia home and stun friends who wonder if just maybe you've pulled off a great art heist. A thief you're not, but did you commit forgery by re-creating the work of the Italian master?

A primer: Here's what happens if you're arrested in Georgia

Facing criminal charges is a difficult predicament to be in, especially when you are in a career that is in public safety. While anyone could be charged with a criminal offense, when a police officer is accused of a serious offense, this could significantly harm his or her personal and professional life on top of facing severe criminal penalties.

Definition of assault and battery in Georgia

Whether it is a family member, a close friend, an acquaintance or a stranger, being accused of committing a violent crime against another is a serious situation for residents in Georgia and elsewhere. Charges stemming from a supposed assault and battery can put the accused in hot water, as these charges can carry with them serious penalties.

Helping you initiate a strong criminal defense

We all feel helpless at some point. When accused of a criminal offense, defendants likely believe that they do not have much of a chance to prove their innocence. They see the evidence piling up against them, they were initially taken into custody and he or she is led to believe that they must suffer the consequences of the alleged crime. However, this is not the truth. A defendant has the ability and the right to assert a criminal defense. Taking such a step could help prove one's innocence.

Helping you determine the best criminal defense

No one expects to face criminal charges. This can be a very overwhelming situation, as no one knows how to act or what to do immediately following an arrest and charges being filed. The evidence that is piling up against an accused offender can make them feel hopeless. However, one should not feel like they have no options, as it is possible to assert a defense when it appears at first that they have little chance of clearing their name.
