I am sorry for this dilemma. But not sure I understand your specific question. Do you have a question regarding this?

Good morning. I was charged with Transact Card fraud in the state of Georgia, 3 counts. Can it be both a felony and misdemeanor in Georgia? Police said misdemeanor but everything I read online says felony.

I am at work and cannot take phone calls.
Criminal Lawyer: P. Simmons, Lawyer replied 5 months ago

Can you tell me, what what is the value claimed (how much are they claiming you stole)?

62.00 67.00 & 65.00

hello
Criminal Lawyer: P. Simmons, Lawyer replied 5 months ago

Thanks

This can be charged as a felony, since the value of all three combined is over $100

Now...the state has discretion...so it is possible they charge as misdemeanor...but they can bring this as a felony charge

Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.

regardless of if was three different transactions, wonder why the police told me it would be misdemeanor.
That is Georgia law correct?
Criminal Lawyer: P. Simmons, Lawyer replied 5 months ago

You can see the law here

https://law.justia.com/codes/georgia/2010/title-16/chapter-9/article-3/16-9-33/

And it is MUCH easier for the state to bring misdemeanor charges (no grand jury required)...so if you have no priors? I would expect that the prosecutor would opt for misdemeanor charges

Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.
