The Importance of Strategic Motions Practice in Georgia Criminal Cases

Posted by Ben Sessions | Nov 04, 2014 | 0 Comments

All judges are motivated to clear their dockets. Some judges are motivated to obtain convictions in criminal cases. All prosecutors are motivated to close cases as quickly as possible and to obtain convictions.


Strategic motions practice in Georgia criminal cases can literally bring both of these goals to a screeching halt. Some motions can stop the criminal conviction train. Some motions can stop the criminal case from going forward, and time is very frequently on our side.

However (and unfortunately), many so-called criminal defense attorneys do not think critically about their motion practice in Georgia criminal cases. Because judges and prosecutors simply want to move cases from their docket, once a lawyer fails to adequately challenge the admissibility of certain pieces of evidence, many judges won't allow subsequent challenges to the admissibility of questionable evidence, and they know that if the evidence goes unchallenged, a guilty plea can frequently be extorted from the defendant.

Criminal defendants' rights are forfeited when proper motions are not timely filed within 10 days from the date of arraignment. Don't allow your future to rest upon the courtesy of the prosecutor or judge because motions were not properly filed in your case.

If you have questions regarding motions that can be or should be filed in your Georgia criminal casecontact The Sessions Law Firm.
