Some examples of criminal punishments in Georgia and alternative outcomes include:

  • Alford plea: Alford pleas and nolo contendere pleas are both special pleas that defendants can use in court. An alford plea is a type of guilty plea that people can use when they believe they are innocent of the crime but the prosecution has enough evidence to prove them guilty. It is only used in felony cases.  
  • Nolo contendere plea: Nolo contendere pleas are a great option for people charged with misdemeanor traffic violations. This type of plea occurs when the accused does not accept or deny responsibility for the charges but agrees to accept the punishment. A nolo plea can only be used once every 5 years. 
  • Probation Violation: Violating your probation comes with serious penalties. Probation comes with typical conditions such as report to your probation supervisor but often they have special conditions as well. Some special conditions can include attendance of anger management classes or other treatment classes. You need a Georgia Defense Attorney to help if you have been charged with violating probation.
