Georgia residents may not know that their state takes a hard stand against crimes of all kinds. This means that those facing criminal charges could face heavy fines, prison times and other penalization based on the type of crime they are accused of. When someone is accused of committing a crime that crosses state lines, that person may face prosecution by the federal government, which can carry even harsher sentences.
As Georgia readers of our Atlanta Federal Criminal Defense Law Blog may have read recently, white collar crimes cover a wide variety of crimes and people can unknowingly find themselves accused of committing these crimes. Even though there may be no physical harm to the alleged victims in this type of crime, the financial and emotional loss are enough cause for levying serious penalties against the accused.
