    It is highly unlikely you will find one. Contact the public defender at your earliest opportunity.

    Unless there is a condition of bond that prohibits you from relocating, yes you can move. However, it is imperative that you keep the court and your bondsman notified of your current address at all times.

    What you describe is an armed robbery. I encourage your girlfriend to seek out competent counsel at her earliest convenience. You or her family may have to assist as it may be awhile before she is taken before a Superior Court Judge for a bond hearing.

  5. Is it possible to obtain a plea bargain for misdemeanor theft by taking in the state of Georgia to not receive jail time?

    Yes, it is possible, as there is no minimum jail sentence for misdemeanor theft by taking. However, I would strongly urge you to speak with an attorney regarding the matter so that all of your options are fully explored. Given you lack of a criminal history, it may be possible to resolve the case with no probation at all. However, that will all depend on the facts of your particular case. Again, I urge you to consult with an attorney regarding this matter at your earliest convenience.

    Unless there is some recorded evidence to show that he made the second drop, which apparently there is not at this time, I think it almost certain that he will be charged with a crime. It is imperative that he hire an experienced criminal defense attorney to represent him in this matter.

    I agree that you should submit a certified copy of the final disposition to GCIC. However, please understand that the case will still appear on your criminal history. It will reflect that you successfully completed your sentence, however. But in the minds of many potential employers, that simply does not matter.

    You do not have to have a jury trial, but you should consult with your attorney before you make that decision. Frequently, it is in a defendant's best interest to have his peers make the determination regarding guilt as opposed to a judge.

  9. Getting my record expunged in ga ? Or Sealed. Also what will a pardon do for me ?

    A pardon is a type of legal forgiveness. Unfortunately, the offense will still show up on your record, and potential employers will still find out about it if they do a background check. The only difference is that it will just show up as having been pardoned. But that's better than nothing.

  10. CAN A DOCUMENT BE ADDED IN A DISCOVERY PACKET THAT WAS NEVER IN IT? IF NOT WHAT CAN YOU DO ABOUT THE DOCUMENT.

    Yes, a document can be added. In fact, if it is something that is required for the case, it has to be provided to you. As long as the judge feels that your attorney has adequate time to review it prior to trial, then the court is likely not going to make a big deal about it, particularly if it is just one document out of hundreds or thousands and the D.A. never had actual possession of it until right before she gave it to you.
