Georgia's Mandatory Minimum Sentencing Guidelines

Georgia has mandatory minimum sentences, which means that any person who is convicted of a crime will be sentenced to a minimum penalty that has already been pre-established by the state. For this reason, you will need to seek legal defense from a skilled Savannah criminal defense attorney.

Possible penalties for any criminal conviction in the state of Georgia could include:

  • Misdemeanor Conviction - up to 1 year in prison, fines not exceeding $1,000, or both
  • Aggravated or High Misdemeanor Conviction - up to 1 year in prison, fines not exceeding $5,000, or both
  • Felony Conviction - more than 1 year in prison, fines exceeding $1,000, or both

When it comes to a criminal arrest, the thought of facing a conviction can be incredibly terrifying. The best way to defend your rights and freedoms is with the guidance of a seasoned litigator who knows how to investigate every possible avenue of defense. Attorney Pirkle has an intensive knowledge of the law that he can use to put you in the best position to dismiss, reduce, suspend, or seek alternative sentencing instead of the mandatory consequences.
