Hire a lawyer familiar with that court jurisdiction. The justice system, just about 100% of the time, bends over backwards for service members. If need be they can likely expedite your son's case. These are patriotic times we are now living in. More positive options are available for service members than civilians, ranging from possible flat out dismissal to reduction of charges to some meaningless charge, or fashioning of a diversion program tailored to your son's specific needs then...
That person should consult with the lawyer representing him or her on the 2011 case. The new arrest may have resulted in violation of a bond condition prohibiting committing new (alleged) crimes thus resulting in.revocation of the first bond. If bond was not revoked then that person needs to post bond on the old case again as well as the new one. That person probably is unable to do it on his or own. If that person has not yet gotten a lawyer it just might be a good idea to get one now.
You describe an offense that does not go to the district attorney but to the solicitor who represents the state of Georgia in State Court. Assuming you properly completed and submitted your application to the correct agency, and follow up with the requirement of submitting the application and proper payment to the GBI you will likely get your expungement.
That happens a lot and that is why traffic courts often wait a few days before taking any action against people for missing court. You may have to pay a small additional fee and have to have your case reset-or maybe not. I recommend you talk to al ocal lawyer for advice regarding the specific court you are dealinmg with.
No. However, if the judge writes on the order something to the effect of "defendant to get credit for time served in custody since[date, 2013]" then credit would be given forthat amount of time spent in custody prior to the sentencing/revocation order.
They are demanding he immediately pay taxes on income (is he in prison for selling drugs?) they believe he has made and that they think will otherwise disappear quickly. OCGA 48-2-51 - Jeopardy assessments; collection; bond
You may want to talk to his lawyer about this.
You gave your story in an internet forum to lawyers who have no responsibility for your case. All we know is what you have said and nothing regarding what the State claims. You have a lawyer who is much more familiar with your situation than we strangers. You should listen to him or her rather than ask strangers to second guess him.
The judge is generally not allowed to advise you as to your defenses, such as jurisdiction. That is unfair to the other side. He is trying to encourage you to get a lawyer or ask for an appointed lawyer. The advice the other lawyers gave you here is correct. This is way over your head and you need to listen to what the lawyers here and the judge are trying to tell you before you end up in jail.
