Jessica Towne has a long history of fighting drug charges based on bad searches. Over her twenty-five plus year career, Jessica Towne has helped hundreds of clients with drug charges in Lawrenceville and throughout the county. She knows those who are arrested for drugs in Gwinnett County, or anywhere else in Georgia, face stiff penalties.
Georgia has a “zero tolerance” policy for driving under the influence of drugs. This means you can get a DUI for driving under the influence of marijuana or even legally prescribed drugs if an officer determines you were so under the influence of that drug that you could not drive safely. The only way to beat drug charges is to prove that the police search was unlawful. You need a lawyer for that.
If you are serious about fighting your Gwinnett drug charge, call Jessica Towne.
Although possession of less than an ounce of marijuana is “only” a misdemeanor, it comes with plenty of penalties and costs. Law enforcement officers in cities such as Duluth, Lawrenceville, Norcross, Suwanee, Snellville, Lilburn, and Dacula, are trained to look for contraband during each and every traffic stop– no matter how small.
Other types of drugs
In Gwinnett County, and any Georgia county, drug DUIs are treated differently than alcohol DUIs. “Drug” DUI can be illegal drugs or prescription drugs.
All other drug charges are felonies.
Felony drug charges are serious and if you want to fight you need an experienced criminal defense lawyer’s help. Jessica Towne has a long record of defending those with drug charges. She can help with your arrest or the arrest of a loved one by:
- filing a bond motion to reduce bond and get out of jail;
- fighting a probation hold or warrant;
- investigating a police search or unlawful arrest;
- evaluating the chances of beating a charge;
- negotiating a plea bargain;
- defending at a trial before a judge or jury;
- negotiating for a lower jail sentence or probation by presenting evidence to the judge;
- defending those accused of violating terms of probation.
