    Minors age 17 are considered adults in criminal system in Georgia, so if a crime is committed they are prosecuted as adults.. Runaway petitions are filed in juvenile court. If the child is already on supervision of the juvenile court, that court can continue to enforce provisions on that child past the age of 17. This is the best information I can give based on the information you provided.

    Well there is a couple of defenses here for this DUI. While I appreciate Michigan attorneys trying to help out here in Ga, your friend will need a local experienced DUI attorney to defend his case. It is his best chance to put this behind him. The police will need to prove that your friend was driving the vehicle. He needs an attorney as soon as possible.

    Its okay to be nervous. Wondering what is going to happen is part of this process. There are a couple factors at play here. You actually dodged a tougher charge because Ga no longer has to prove service. The officer in your case gave you a ticket for no valid license which is much better in the long run. The fact that you have your license back when you go to court will go in your favor. Most likely you will have to pay a fine. A consultation with a local criminal defense attorney will...

    You said you have not gone to court on your second DUI yet. A second in 5 has an absolute minimum jail time of 72 hours. The minimum on the 3rd is 15 days. You are likely to get much more on your 2nd and 3rd within a year. These are very serious charges especially with the hit and run. You may be looking at quite a bit of jail time in your future. Also, a 3rd DUI conviction within 5 years will make you a habitual violator which is a lengthy hard suspension of your license. You most...

    Successfully completing diversion is almost always better than pleading first offender if you can complete the conditions. First offender is a plea of guilty and puts you on probation. Please talk to your attorney about this decision and your ability to complete it. He can help you decide.

    Give it a shot and plead not guilty. You may get your case dismissed or win a trial. Most likely you are only risking a higher fine. Good Luck!

    We could use more information to give you a helpful response. Please post the county you were arrested in along with some facts about your arrest. For example, what kind of drug, roughly how much do they say you had, and where (car, house, pocket). Drug cases are always very fact dependent. The court you are in matters too. You could be facing probation or years in jail without more information about the circumstances. I can tell you that you will be most helped with an experienced...

    Actually, several kinds of felonies are not permitted as first offenders even if the person is otherwise qualified. Also, first offender is not always the best choice for the case. An experienced criminal defense attorney can advise you on the best possible resolutions for your case.

    As attorney, we often file motions to terminate probation early. I often try to negotiate early termination of probation in the original plea agreement. Once the motion to early terminate is filed and a date is set for a hearing, your lawyer is able to present testimony/evidence to support terminating your probation early. Some of the considerations are: length of probation, remaining time on probation, successful completion of all conditions of probation, all fines and fees paid, no...
