Criminal defense against accusations of...love?

Georgia residents may have personal references for a situation in which a person prepares to profess his or her love for another. It can be frightening to get up the nerve to tell a person how you feel about them, especially if the love may be unrequited. The fear of rejection can be difficult to overcome, but surely, most people would never consider that love letters may result in a need to present a criminal defense

Recently, a Georgia woman bared her heart in a series of love letters, sent in the form of emails, to a local man for whom she professed strong feelings. The messages, sent in the form of email, included song lyrics and honest personal thoughts about her love for the man. Unfortunately, her love interest did not return the gesture. 

Worse yet, the man in question happens to be the local sheriff. Rather than just block communication from the woman, or explain that he had no interest in a relationship, he chose to seek criminal charges against her for harassment. The woman is now behind bars, awaiting her day in court.

When a Georgia resident is accused of a crime, he or she may be understandably concerned. However, all persons are innocent unless the prosecution is able to prove that a person broke the law. In many cases, people turn to an experienced attorney to assist with the process of presenting a criminal defense. An attorney can help a person explain his or her case to a court, and help him or her ensure that his or her rights are protected through each step of the legal process.
