Drug Charges Dismissed

Felony methamphetamine and misdemeanor marijuana charges were dismissed in Cherokee
County Superior Court. The Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office arrested the client for drugs found
in a vehicle in which she was a passenger, but the driver, who was presumed to be in possession
of the drugs under Georgia law, was never charged. Days before her jury trial was set to begin,
the district attorney chose to dismiss the drug charges instead of taking the case to trial.
