Consequences of money laundering in Georgia

When a crime takes place, it is very common for money to be involved. Money that is generated through illegal activities can be seized as illegitimate profits by the authorities. Therefore, criminals do whatever they can to make it seem as though this money was acquired through legitimate channels. This process of taking money acquired through criminal activity and making it legitimate is called money laundering, and it is a crime.

Marijuana possession is still a serious crime in Georgia

Cultural attitudes toward marijuana have shifted drastically in the last decade. While federal law still prohibits possession, cultivation or sale of this plant, many states have taken steps to legalize its use. Some states have laws that permit adult recreational use, while others have legalized marijuana for medical purposes only. Georgia simply isn't one of those states.

The more DUI convictions you have, the higher the penalty

In many areas of criminal law, your criminal record will have an impact on the potential consequences and even the charges you face. First time offenders may receive more lenient treatment and are more likely to receive the benefit of the doubt from prosecutors and judges, particularly for nonviolent offenses.
