Posted by Richard Lawson | Jun 25, 2011 | 0 Comments

Charged with possession of marijuana in Gwinnett County Georgia?  You are certainly not alone.  Gwinnett County police officers charge thousands of citizens each year with Possession of Marijuana.  A first offense of possession of less than one ounce of marijuana is typically a misdemeanor.  If you are charged with possession of greater than one ounce, or you are charged with dealing or distributing marijuana, that is a felony charge.  With any charge, it should not be taken lightly.  A conviction in Gwinnett County stays on your record forever.  If you have any defenses, they should be waived and in many cases, diversion or first offender programs can be used to keep the convictions from being on your record and / or having implications for you later in life. 

In addition, these charges can be contested at trial.  If there was not probable cause for your arrest, or there were others in your car or home who were actually responsible for the marijuana, you can take your case to trial and seek a not guilty verdict.
