A few people in Cherokee County find themselves facing criminal charges after law enforcement pulled over one vehicle. The traffic stop eventually resulted in drug charges for four people, as well as other traffic-related criminal charges. The initial traffic stop involved one person, but information gathered during this interaction led law enforcement to a private residence where more arrests were eventually made.
Being involved in a traffic stop for excessive speeding can be a stressful and harrowing experience. While a citation for speeding could be troublesome enough as is, the process may only become more daunting should additional allegations arise. A recent traffic stop involving similar circumstances in Georgia has reportedly left a 42-year-old woman in custody facing DUI charges.
Anytime you encounter law enforcement, you would benefit from having a clear understanding of your rights. However, criminal law is often complex, and the severity of any criminal charges can depend a great deal on the unique factors of the situation. If police recently arrested you for a crime such as a repeat offense of DUI or a violent incident that resulted in someone else's injury, you may be waiting to hear if the district attorney will file the charge as a misdemeanor or felony.
