Defense Against Violent Crime Charges In Georgia
Individuals investigated, arrested or charged in connection with violent crimes are often treated like they are guilty before they even get the chance to contact an attorney. They are held without bail or sometimes even when bail applies, it is far too costly to pay.
This level of severity even before a trial takes place is just a precursor to how aggressively prosecutors work to bring charges against the accused. At the law firm of C. Alan Wheeler, P.C., in Macon, Georgia, we firmly believe in our clients’ rights and due process in the criminal justice system. Attorney Alan Wheeler personally handles every case with a long history of success in courtroom proceedings.
