What to Do If You Are Accused of a Crime

If you are accused of, arrested for, or charged with a crime in Georgia, it is important that you remember your rights. Most importantly, you have the right to remain silent. You do not have to speak to law enforcement or prosecutors without an attorney present. Additionally, if you cannot afford an attorney, you have the right to have one appointed to you.

If you are accused of a crime, it is in your best interests to do the following:

  • Remain silent. Do not try to defend yourself to the police or explain what you are doing, where you are going, or where you have been. Anything you say can be used against you; it is always in your best interests to state that you wish to remain silent and then do so.
  • Comply with law enforcement. Do not run, resist arrest, or lie to police officers, as doing either of these things could result in additional charges or even jeopardize your safety. If asked, identify yourself. However, you do not have to —and should not—say anything else. 
  • Do not consent to a search of your belongings, home, or vehicle if the police do not have a signed search warrant. Just as you do not have to speak to law enforcement, you do not have to allow them to search your personal property. 
  • Contact a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. After an arrest, the prosecution will work quickly to build its case against you. You should work equally as quickly in finding a lawyer who can defend your rights and protect your future. 

When you reach out to Perrotta, Lamb & Johnson, LLC, we immediately begin investigating your case and gathering important evidence on your behalf. Our criminal defense lawyers in Adairsville work tirelessly to develop creative legal strategies customized to the unique facts of your case, and we are prepared to aggressively defend you through every stage of the criminal justice system. 

Types of Criminal Cases We Handle

At Perrotta, Lamb & Johnson, LLC, we represent clients in a wide range of criminal matters, including but not limited to: 

  • Driving under the influence (DUI) 
  • Multiple DUIs
  • Misdemeanors 
  • Felonies 
  • Drug possession 
  • Drug manufacturing/cultivating 
  • Possession of an illicit substance with intent to sell
  • Drug distribution or sale 
  • Drug trafficking 
  • Murder 
  • Homicide 
  • Manslaughter 
  • Assault 
  • Violent crimes 
  • Domestic violence/assault 

We understand just how serious the allegations against you are, as well as the immense impact they can have—and have likely already had—on your life. If convicted, you could face thousands of dollars in fines, jail or prison time, and mandatory probation and/or community service. A conviction can also significantly affect your ability to obtain housing, educational opportunities, and loans, as well as irreparably damage your reputation. 

Our goal is to prevent you from suffering the harsh consequences of a criminal conviction. Whenever possible, we seek to have our clients’ charges dropped, but when this is not possible, we may pursue a reduction of charges, reduced penalties, or a not-guilty verdict at trial. In any case, you can rely on our Adairsville criminal defense attorneys to use all available resources and pursue every legal avenue in an effort to obtain the best possible outcome on your behalf.
