Georgia teen likely considering criminal defense

Some law enforcement authorities in Georgia encourage people to be vigilant of their surroundings and contact police if they notice any suspicious behavior. However, "suspicious" is a subjective term, and often, behaviors that some would label as such turn out to be easily explained. Unfortunately, a teenager has recently found himself facing criminal charges after a concerned citizen contacted police, likely leaving the young man considering his criminal defense.

The events that led to the 18-year-old's arrests -- as well as a juvenile who was allegedly with him -- are said to have happened during the early-morning hours of a day in late March. According to reports, police received a call from a resident. The caller was concerned that the youths were breaking into cars after the former allegedly saw them walking away from a home.

Police officers set up patrols and reportedly eventually discovered two people matching the description provided by the caller. The 18-year-old now faces multiple charges, including contributing to the delinquency of a minor, loitering and prowling, criminal attempt to commit entering auto and theft by receiving stolen property. Many details of the incident remain unclear, including what property police believe was stolen and who was driving the van in which the youths were allegedly passengers.

Unfortunately, the 18-year-old was on probation as a result of a previous incident. Because of the charges against him, he may face severe consequences if the probation is revoked. An experienced criminal defense attorney can help the young Georgia man make the necessary decisions that he will likely be facing in the coming days.
