    Yes this happens occasionally when a police officer thinks you can be turned into a snitch-- and his b***itch. If the officer wants, he can wait months before arresting you. Depending on where this happened, if you have never been in trouble before, snitching is probably not a good idea, for all the obvious reasons and all sorts that are not so obvious. . You should contact a local lawyer and give him or her some details to help you decide.

    I understand you don't have the money to hire lawyer. However, if your son is not going to be extradited and placed in Georgia custody, he will not be able to get an appointed lawyer either. If you want to resolve this situation you are going to have to figure out a way to get the funds necessary to hire a lawyer because this is not something you and your son can handle without one.

    Fees vary widely. They also depend on what your defenses are and the court you are in. I suggest you call some lawyers, explain your situation and then ask.

    You need a lawyer. You had no criminal intent to commit theft by conversion. However they can still charge you. I have seen people ignorantly plead guilty in cases just like this. You should not, no matter how good the offer. This is strictly a civil case.

    In addition to all the other correct answers, it has been my experience confirmed by the local fugitive squad, and common sense, that the more serious the charges connected to the underlying warrant, the more aggressive the sheriff will be in chasing you down. Think child molestation verses a suspended license. Two counties away in the same State is a nice little weekday trip for the fugitive squad. I gather from what you are saying that the warrant was not dismissed since you did not pay the...

    Sentencing can vary greatly depending on the circumstances. Also your son may have defenses such as illegal stop, detention, arrest and search so don't think that he must just plead guilty. it's not that cut and dry. Yes your son can request an appointed lawyer and may get one if he and you (if he is dependent on you), are truly indigent.

    That's a close question. Firearms are prohibited while on felony probation or by convicted felons. However, start by asking your probation officer if you will be arrested for violation of probation if you possess a replica of gun that can be used to shoot projectiles. If the answer is yes, then you need to decide if you want to hire a lawyer to go to court to fight for your right to possess a bb gun, by arguing to the sentencing judge that a bb gun is not a firearm within the meaning of the...
