Statesboro Drug Crime Lawyer
Helping Our Clients Enroll in Drug Diversion Programs in Georgia
Many of our clients who have been arrested for a drug crime ask us about Georgia’s drug diversion program. This program provides a way for the state to reduce repeat acts of drug crimes and keep the jail from becoming overcrowded. In exchange for participation and completion of a drug diversion program, the defendant can avoid the penalties associated with a drug crime conviction. Those who meet all the requirements of the program will have the charges against them dropped.

Who is Eligible for the Drug Diversion Program?
The drug diversion program is only available for individuals who meet certain eligibility requirements, including:
- The defendant is a first-time offender with no prior misdemeanor or felony charges or convictions
- The defendant has not participated in a drug diversion program previously
- The defendant is not facing any other criminal charges
If you meet these qualifications, the drug diversion program may be a good option for you. However, you should consult with an experienced criminal defense lawyer prior to seeking this route. Participation in this kind of program can be long and intensive, and therefore is not right for everyone. Your defense attorney can help you decide if this is the right path forward for you and work with the prosecutor and judge to determine whether you should be accepted into the program.
What is a Great Defense Against Illegal Search & Seizure?
There are several types of defenses that can be used when fighting against drug crime charges. One of the most common strategies is that of unlawful search and seizure. Under the Fourth Amendment, individuals are protected from unreasonable search and seizure. In cases where the police do not have probable cause to believe that the alleged offender was committing a crime, the evidence that was unlawfully taken may be suppressed. That means it can’t be used against the defendant in court to convict them.
