Criminal Defense

If you have been charged with a criminal offense, you are just beginning the long and arduous trip through the criminal justice system. The fight for your freedom is not an easy one. The state has almost unlimited resources in its quest to prosecute and convict you. You need to vigorously fight back with an experienced defense attorney on your side.

John B. Tucker, Attorney

Call John B. Tucker, a Georgia criminal defense attorney who serves Peachtree City and Newman. He will compassionately listen to your side of the case and together you will decide the best way to proceed. He will obtain all investigative and police reports, interview witnesses and call in an investigator and experts when necessary. He will answer all your questions and provide you the best defense available. There can be no guarantee of any particular result, but you can trust that he will put up a good fight and work for the best possible outcome.

Examples of the some of the charges he has defended against include, but are not limited to:

  • Assault.
  • Battery.
  • Burglary
  • Drunk driving (DUI) offenses.
  • Domestic violence.
  • Homicide.
  • Kidnapping.
  • Robbery.
  • Armed robbery.
  • Drug offenses.
  • Weapons charges.

It is extremely important that you do not speak to anyone without your attorney present. This means law enforcement officers, investigators from the prosecutor’s office, your family, friends or cell mates. What you see on TV and what the arresting officer should have told you is true: Anything you say can and will be used against you.

Protection of your constitutional rights

You have certain rights under the federal and state constitutions that law enforcement officers or representatives of the state cannot violate. If they infringe on your rights, it is possible that your case will be dismissed.

Some of the rights you have are:

  • Be free from unreasonable and warrantless searches and seizures.
  • Remain silent and not be a witness against yourself.
  • The due process of law.
  • Have a speedy trial.
  • Have competent counsel to represent you at all stages of the proceedings.
  • Confront witnesses against you.

John Tucker will discuss all options with you. If the two of you agree that the best course for you to take is to work toward reduction of charges or mitigation of penalties, he is a good negotiator. If you decide going to trial is your best option, he is an experienced trial attorney who will put the prosecutor’s evidence to the test and zealously work toward creating reasonable doubt and an acquittal.
