  • W of percentage of your time do you have to do in prison in georgia!

    my husband was sentenced to 3yrs in prison and has been in jail since dec 21 2011

    Jason’s Answer

    That depends on a number of factors, and isn't a simple calculation of a percentage. Parole date is based on things like: Age at the time of the conviction (and age at the time of first conviction), number of convictions on his history, the details of the conviction itself (the parole board will read the transcript from the judge's sentencing and/or plea transcript), the likelihood of successful completion of parole (based on many of these same factors). Two people could be paroled at different times for the very same crime based on the different factors that the parole board considers.

  • What need to be proven for aggrivated assault

    The person who was assaulted said she was hit with something when she ranned up to the car. when the ambulance came they check her for breathing not no injury, they couldnt find no object in the car

    Jason’s Answer

    There is no requirement that an injury occur for someone to be charged with aggravated assault. The only legal requirement is that someone is placed in fear of receiving bodily injury. Aggravated assault is very serious, and I agree with the first answer in that you need to hire an attorney as soon as possible to start working on this case for you.

    Jason’s Answer

    An attorney might be able to speed up the process by talking with the prosecutor about your case. You will not be able to get it expunged until the court process is completed.

  • This is my second forgery charge how much time im looking

    i didnt get any money

    Jason’s Answer

    There are many different factors to consider in answering your question. They include the jurisdiction where you are charged, the particular judge that has your case, the particular prosecutor, any other criminal charges you have had, your age, the facts of the case.... you should talk to a lawyer who is familiar with the particular court where you are charged. The felony charge of '1st degree forgery' carries up to 10 years in prison in Georgia.

  • What is detainer charges of SOID?

    my son was falsey arrested for bugulary and I need to know what does (DETAINER CHARGES SOID) mean?

    Jason’s Answer

    In the DeKalb county jail that detainer is only in place until the sheriff can positively confirm someone's ID through fingerprints. Once the ID has been confirmed, that detainer is lifted (usually upon booking out). That does not mean that they are confirming anyone as the perpetrator of a crime, just as the person they say they are. This is to cut down on false names, etc. I would be happy to talk to you further about this false arrest if you want to call my office.

  • If there are priors & convictions from guilty pleas (no violent & drug related), what is possible time faced for armed robbery?

    Long arrest history from drug related activity with prior convictions-all guilty pleas, and the person commits their first armed robbery, along with a probation violation. What could the possible sentencing become?

    Jason’s Answer

    In my jurisdiction the short answer is 10 years (no parole) to life. You should consult a lawyer in the specific locale that you are asking about though. This is a good example of why you need to sign up to meet with an lawyer who knows the specific practice area. Call someone for a free consultation.

  • What does dismissal without leave by da mean

    traffic violation

    Jason’s Answer

    In some states that means that a judge dismissed the charge and it was against the wishes of the prosecutor. There are several ways to dismiss charges, including with or without permission of the DA. This would appear to be "without permission."

    Jason’s Answer

    There are also different types of "dead docket" orders. It depends on who asked for the dead docket, when it was filed, why it was filed, etc. Cases like this can come back up if they were on the dead docket because of a bench warrant, the defense requested it, etc. You might want an attorney to look into the clerk's file.
