Man arrested for CNN threats, needs criminal defense strategy

Georgia is the proud home base of CNN News, but being a member of a news network these days can be a harrowing experience at times. Recently, the tension was raised a few notches in CNN's Atlanta headquarters. The company reports that a man from another state plummeted the company with a barrage of allegedly threatening and harassing phone calls. He has been arrested and now will need to explain to criminal defense counsel what motivated him to act. 

70 arrested for marijuana may have strong criminal defense

The police in Cartersville may not be aware of the national trend, including here in Georgia, of treating a small amount of marijuana as a minor offense. Instead, they recently arrested 70 people -- most of them African Americans -- at a party. All 70 of the suspects were arrested and jailed for possession of the same small amount of marijuana that authorities found on the premises. Criminal defense counsel will likely be successful in challenging many of the arrests.

Charges for driving under the influence of alcohol can have serious consequences if a conviction is obtained. Operating any manner of vehicle while intoxicated can lead to similar charges.

Layered legal system worth tracking in drug cases
