Georgia v. S.B.B.

John Arnold Steakley

Practice Area:Criminal Defense

Outcome:Significantly Reduced Charges

Description:S.B.B. was visiting friends in Atlanta when a friend of a friend asked for a ride to a house in Gwinnett county to buy some marijuana. S.B. drove, sat in the car, and drove away after the purchase. She didn't realize that there had been a shooting in the house that would result in murder charges being brought against her as a "getaway driver." Through successful negotiation, Mr. Steakley helped S.B.B. avoid a life sentence in exchange for testimony and a few years in custody. She will be eligible for parole soon.
