If you are currently facing criminal charges or an investigation involving the alleged manufacturing of a controlled substance, you are in danger of facing felony charges. You may face imprisonment in a Georgia state prison for years or decades—depending on the type of drug, the amount you are accused of manufacturing, and whether this substance was allegedly manufactured for personal use or for sale/distribution. Atlanta criminal defense lawyer Andre Sailers is prepared to tackle allegations of illegal drug manufacturing in courts throughout Georgia. Without his help, the consequences of a conviction could include:
Consequences of a Conviction
- Heavy fines
- Asset & property seizure
- Suspension of driver's license
- Mandatory community service
- Criminal record
- Mandatory drug treatment
Manufacturing charges are one of the most severely punished drug-related crimes, and if convicted, one could expect to face a troublesome future. Not only would an individual face serious time in prison, but the mark of a manufacturing charge on their criminal record would be enough to affect future employment and housing opportunities.
To be convicted, however, the prosecution must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant actually manufactured a controlled substance, the defendant was aware of the manufacturing, and that the defendant manufactured a controlled substance intentionally. If you are faced with a drug manufacturing charge, it is imperative that you contact Attorney Sailers as soon as possible.
