    Depending on when your conviction for the DUI was, you may be able to seek a hardship waiver from the court that had jurisdiction over the case here in GA by filing an appropriate petition. Under GA law, if you sat without the license (ie: you were suspended for the full three years) and the judge issues the hardship waiver, then no ignition interlock device would be required. This would seem to clear up your issue. If, however the DUI was a 2008 arrest, the date of conviction would be...

    The answer is dependent on the facts surrounding when and if the molestation was previously reported. The Statue of Limitations on such a crime is generally 7 years. However, because of your age, certain Georgia Law provisions may have acted to toll (or temporarily stop) the running of the statue of limitations. The most important factor in this analysis is whether the incident was previously reported to law enforcement. Regardless of the ability to prosecute the crime, you should...

    It depends on the type of civil lawsuit you are trying to file (ex: collecting on a bad check). Without more information it is impossible to answer your question. You may want to inquire of a qualified attorney in your area. You can find an attorney on this site: www.avvo.com.

    Getting an attorney involved in this case is essential. I agree with the previous poster that you should call and see if there isa pre-set bond on the arrest warrant. If there is you can call a local bondsman and have everything in place for the bondsman to get you out before you turn yourself in. Depending on whether you are going to the Atlanta Jail or the Fulton County Jail, the amount of time consumed in the process varies. Typically, it takes from 4 to 8 hours to complete the booking...

    With Georgia Southern's location in Statesboro, GA, law enforcement officers in that town tend to rachet up there enforcement of these types of crimes. You should probably call a local Statesboro lawyer. Many give a free consultation. In this type of situation (depending on your criminal history) you may be able to work something out through pre-trial diversion to keep the case off your criminal record. There is obviously no guarantee as all cases are factually dependent.

  6. Can a county sherriff give me a ticket for failure to stop while hes is off the easement and on a private property/drive in Ga.?

    There is no requirement in terms of where a Georgia Police officer may sit to watch a road sign. In speeding enforcement cases, police officers (excluding the Georgia State Patrol) have to be clearly visible for 500 feet. This is not the case in this type of situation. While the individual property owner could ask that the officer not sit on his property, the fact that he was 30 feet off the roadway outside of a county easement has no effect on your case.

In your situation, the amount of jail time you face will depend on a host of factors. These factors include the particular judge you are assigned, the particular A.D.A. or Solicitor (Government Prosecutor) assigned to your case, the severity of any injuries to yourself or others asd a result fo the accident, and the strength of the DUI case against you. A lot...

    In your situation, a Tennessee Lawyer who practices in the area of DWI/DUI is crucial. Different states have different laws surrounding the timing of chemical testing. For example, Georgia law requires thast the blood be drawn or a breath test be administered within 3 hours of driving. A qualified Attorney may also be able (depending on the BAC and other Factors) to dispute your BAC at the time of actual driving of the vehicle using an expert witness. This type of evidence, if allowed in...

    Thoug all of the factors you indicated in your question would perhaps weigh on the mind of the Judge in your situation, there is no waiver of the ignition interlock requirement other than a "Hardship Waiver". To qualify you would need to prove financial burden to the court as a result of the imposition of the ignition interlock requirement. Typically Judges who grant the ignition interlock hardship waiver will waive the requirement but make a condition of the waiver the special term of...

    LASER or LIDAR citations are very hard to fight in Georgia. The Georgia Courts have taken judicial notice of the accuracy and scientific principles that are the underpinnings of LASER speed enforcement technology. If you are goingto fight the charge via trial, you should consider hiring an attorney to assist you. There are many rules of evidence and court procedures that can be difficult for a layperson to understand and abide by. Additionally, the court will try to hold you to the same...
