Felony Charges in Henry County

People charged with major felonies (murder, armed robbery, drug trafficking, child molestation) risk long prison sentences.  Many of these crimes carry mandatory minimums if convicted.  Murder carries a mandatory life sentence.  Armed robbery carries a mandatory sentence of 10 years without parole.  The goal in defending these cases is clear: avoid a conviction in order to avoid a crushing prison sentence.  Jury trials are common in major felony cases because the prosecution will seldom make a plea offer worth taking. David Abbott, McDonough felony lawyer, represents clients charged with robbery, drug trafficking and more.


Less serious charges present more complex choices.  In Henry County, a first offender charged with a minor felony (simple possession of drugs, theft of less than $10,000) rarely gets prison time.  Such an offender may serve days or weeks in jail or be ordered to complete drug treatment.   However, a felony conviction can be devastating to your career even if you don’t spend a day in jail. When you need robbery or drug trafficking defense in McDonough, David Abbott has the resources to defend you in court. Minor felony cases call for more subtle lawyering than major felonies, as prosecutors have significant room for negotiation.  Therefore, hiring a respected attorney such as McDonough felony lawyer, David Abbott can often improve your plea offer merely by creating the credible threat of a difficult jury trial. 


In some cases, especially drug cases, evidence can be suppressed if it was seized improperly. As an experienced McDonough felony lawyer, I have the trial skills to get acquittals in winnable cases, the judgment to know which cases I can’t win, and the integrity to tell my clients the truth and pursue realistic goals.
