Statesboro Misdemeanor Defense Attorney

Aggressive Legal Representation for Misdemeanor Charges in GA

You may believe that a misdemeanor offense is a minor matter that will have little effect on your life. While these are less serious crimes than felonies and have lesser penalties, they should not be taken lightly. Depending on the nature of your offense, a conviction still carries potential jail time, fines, probation, restitution, and community service as well as a permanent criminal record going forward.

For the best case outcome, you should work with an experienced criminal defense attorney. The Brannen Law Office, P.C. was founded by a former state prosecutor who has handled over 90 felony jury trials alone. Our Statesboro misdemeanor defense lawyer’s accomplishments and dedication to clients has earned him an Avvo Clients’ Choice award.

"Mr. Brannen helped me get a misdemeanor dismissed. My sister had used him before and she recommended him to me. I was terrified because I have NEVER been in trouble with the law. Mr. Brannen and his office made me feel so comfortable and explained the entire process to me. Thank you again!!!!"

Understanding Misdemeanor Offenses in Georgia

Under local ordinances, misdemeanors are punishable by up to a year in jail and fees that can range from $300 to $1000. Some misdemeanors that are considered to be more serious than others are referred to as high or aggravated misdemeanors. These offenses can carry much higher fees that may range up to $5,000.

Besides the above-mentioned penalties, you may lose your right to possess a firearm if convicted of a family violence misdemeanor. In the case of drug offense misdemeanors, you may lose your ability to obtain federal financial education aid as well as your driver’s license.

Examples of Georgia misdemeanors include:

  • Public intoxication
  • Vandalism
  • Trespassing
  • Prostitution
  • Some types of domestic violence
  • DUI
  • Shoplifting
  • Marijuana possession
  • Eluding a police officer

A permanent criminal record of a misdemeanor arrest and conviction can have serious consequences for the future. You may be turned down when trying to rent an apartment or home and denied financial services.
