Georgia man likely building criminal defense after arrest

Being arrested for a crime can be one of the most difficult situations a person can face. If that crime allegedly includes the death of loved ones, it can be emotionally devastating. A Georgia man has recently been charged with manslaughter because of heat exposure in the deaths of his twin girls. It is likely that he is building a criminal defense in order to ensure a fair trial.

The incident occurred on Thursday, August 4, at around 6:30 p.m. According to witnesses, the 24-year-old father was seen carrying his 15-month-old daughters from the parking lot of an apartment complex and into an inflatable pool located on the property. Neighbors also tried to lend assistance by providing water and ice packs, and emergency medical technicians attempted to revive the children by giving them CPR. Tragically, the girls were declared dead at a local hospital shortly after.

Allegedly, the father had left the girls in a car for an undetermined time. Officers on the scene believe that alcohol may have been a factor in the incident. At this time, police are waiting for results of blood tests in order to determine the level of the father's intoxication.

It is unclear at this time if Georgia police have any other evidence connecting the man to the crime other than the initial testimony of witnesses. Unfortunately, anyone can make any claim, but without additional proof, there may not be sufficient evidence to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt in criminal court. In order to ensure that the man now facing criminal charges has the most effective criminal defense, he may choose to hire an experienced attorney to help guide him through the criminal process.
