33 people charged with federal crimes in Georgia

The federal government has nearly unlimited resources to investigate and prosecute criminal activity. Federal investigators have the manpower and the money to orchestrate massive undercover operations which with the sole purpose of finding people engaged in specific criminal activity. These types of undercover operations are fairly common. Evidence gathered in these stings is often allowed in court to be used against those who have been arrested and charged with federal crimes.

Once such operation in Georgia -- called Operation Pulaski -- has led to criminal charges against 33 people. According to authorities, the operation began in 2011 when agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives infiltrated criminal organizations. Authorities say that the purpose of this operation was to remove dangerous drugs and weapons from the streets of Georgia.

During the sting, these undercover officers claim to have purchased cocaine, heroin and 189 different guns. These guns included assault rifles, machines guns, handguns and others.

Once these officials had gathered evidence against the individuals involved, indictments were issued, charges were brought and arrests were made. Many of these individuals were charged with various weapons and federal drug charges.

These people will now need to begin their complex criminal proceedings. In these types of cases, it could be easy for prosecutors to try and pin people against each other. Some people may be offered deals to testify against others as prosecutors try to get as many guilty verdicts as possible.

Therefore, it is important for everyone arrested in these situations to prepare an aggressive criminal defense. This defense should ensure that no ones constitutional rights were violated during the operation or subsequent criminal proceedings. By preparing an aggressive defense, people can give themselves the best chance at a positive outcome.
