What is a “Wobbler” Offense in GA?

In Georgia, certain crimes may be classified as wobbler offenses. This means that they may be charged as either a misdemeanor or felony offense, depending on the circumstances of the situation.

Federal Felonies

Felonies may also be charged at the federal level after being investigated by such agencies as the FBI, DEA, ATF, and others. These types of cases will be prosecuted at the federal level and subjected to federal sentencing guidelines, which can be severe. They can include such crimes as drug trafficking, armed robbery, kidnapping, terrorist threats, and many types of fraud. Basically, federal felonies are those that violate federal law or cross state lines, as in human or drug trafficking.

Being charged with a federal felony is a very serious matter that calls for the services of an attorney who is licensed and familiar with federal court rules and procedure. Our Macon felony lawyer can provide competent representation at this level.
