    This question cannot be adequately answered on an open forum list. However, it is easily answered in an attorney's office. Please take some time and set up consultations with your daughter for at least 3 experienced local DUI counsel in your area. If you cannot find one, I will help you find some good attorneys. This will help you determine if your daughter will be represented well. This situation will take some time to resolve and may impact your daughter for the rest of her life. Do not...

    Asker- I read your comments to the previous poster. The simple answer is yes, the lane change and following too closely tickets are criminal convictions here in Ga because they are punishable by 12 months in custody and a $1000 fine. However, the previous poster is correct- they are normally considered on regular job applications to be moving violations rather than criminal convictions. Here is the bigger problem. You have a conviction for DUI which is a much bigger deal than the other two...

    Your case hinges on what the officer actually saw regarding you and your vehicle. The State has to prove you were in actual physical control of a moving vehicle. The outcome may also depend on whether the Court considers the stop of your vehicle a stop or just an encounter to begin with. Seek an experienced local DUI attorney in your area. They can help determine the best defense for your case under the facts. Don't delay as your license could be suspended based on the arrest.

    Is this Fulton County State Court? Long delays there are not uncommon. These delays normally are to the accused benefit in a final resolution of the case. However, a filing of a citation stays the statute of limitations. It is unclear from your question whether a citation was issued. My suggestion is to find an attorney that is experienced in the State court where you bound your case over. This attorney may be able to assist you to determine if charges are still pending. It is difficult...

    Currently not under Ga law, however there is an expungment bill pending before the Ga legislature which may help some folks clean up their past records. Check back in the summer/fall and there may be some movement on this issue.

    Lawyers have a set protocol on where they appear first when they have cases set at the same time which is a Superior Court rule. Felony cases come before misdemeanors. You should contact your lawyers office to see if they still represent you in your DUI case. Just because your lawyer cannot appear on Monday does not mean you will not have a lawyer on a later date. It is important that you speak with your lawyer to figure out what you need to do next to resolve your DUI case.

    If you were charged in Cobb County, you could qualify for a circuit defender if your income qualifies. We have many experienced DUI attorneys in Cobb. Cobb County has the largest amount of DUI arrests in the State of Georgia. On July 1st of this year the DUI law changed in Georgia which has significantly increased the long term consequences of a conviction. Hiring an experienced DUI attorney to assist you in your defense will be money very well spent. At your first court date you can...

    A great DUI attorney is worth every penny and much more. This is not a situation you want to face alone or with a novice attorney. Make some consultation appointments with some experienced DUI attorneys and you will be able to make your decision and not base it on price alone. Good luck,

    The Federal government may intercede in a state case when there a larger criminal enterprise involved, when it is a specific federal crime- like bank robbery, counterfeiting or child kidnapping. They may also be working with the state in investigating a case. Most times it is discretionary with the federal authorities. Without more information, it is difficult to tell if you might be in danger of your case becoming a "federal" case. The systems are different. The rules of evidence differ in...
