Externship - Approved Placements
The more serious crimes are classified as felonies. Among the crimes that are felonies in Georgia are murder, rape, armed robbery, burglary, theft of property worth $500.00 or more, forgery, child molestation, aggravated assault and most drug violations. Our office prosecutes felonies in the Superior Court of Fayette, Pike, Upson, and Spalding Counties. Because there is no State court in Pike or Upson Counties, we also prosecute misdemeanors such as DUI, Shoplifting, Simple Battery and Stalking. Children under 17 years of age are usually prosecuted in Juvenile Court. Our office represents the State in the Juvenile Court of each of the four counties. The Georgia General Assembly has recognized that drug dealers are driven by greed. An effective way to stop them is to take away their property. District Attorneys are entrusted with the responsibility to do just that.
