  • What steps do I have to take to get an auto theft charge dropped against my boyfriend?

    My boyfriend has an arrest warrant for auto theft. The car was mines. I had called the police because we were arguing and he hit me a few times. He had took the car, I knew he went somewhere to calm down for a little while but he would be back lat...

    Kimberly’s Answer

    It does sound like your boyfriend will need to have a lawyer. It is also possible that the police and/or court may try to charge you with false report of a crime. This is a felony offense, so an experienced criminal defense attorney from your county would be very helpful.

  • If arrested for a dui .15 BAC and they let you keep your license does the 10 day letter rule still apply ?

    havent had a dui in 11 years

    Kimberly’s Answer

    I always recommend that people still send the appeal letter and the fee as insurance even if they retained their license. If the officer does not send in the 1205, you can get your $150 refunded. It is the safest course to take with your license. Please contact an experienced DUI attorney in the area where you were arrested to assist you. If you need assistance locating an experienced attorney, I would be happy to help.

  • I received a DUI "Other" in june of 2011, and I was wondering if I would be eligible for a court appointed attorney

    I received the "other" status because the officer started with accusing me of drinking or being drunk, after I told him I was in fact not drunk and had not been drinking at all, he insisted that "I just tell Him" after I began to refuse and ask hi...

    Kimberly’s Answer

    The information in your question has nothing really to do with being eligible for a court appointed attorney. That is usually need based on income. However, you listed many facts that show that you should definitely need an experienced DUI attorney. You are at risk for a conviction. Please take that very seriously. You should not try to handle your case without an attorney. Make a consultation this week to discuss your options.

    Good Luck,

  • Violation of probation

    I received a wet and reckless when I was 17 and was sentenced to 2 yrs of probation, after completing the terms of probation, I was put on unsupervised probation. While I was on unsupervised probation I was cited with an underage consumption of al...

    Kimberly’s Answer

    Jim is right. You still are not old enough to drink alcohol but have 2 alcohol related offenses at 19. This is serious. You have a bright future with your grades. However, you will flunk your semester if you arrested for your new offense and incarcerated until your probation is over. Hopefully, you discussed this situation with the attorney handling your minor in possession charge here in GA. You did not say how long you have remaining on probation or what state it is in- and you don't have to. If you are very worried about a warrant for the probation violation, contact your prior attorney on the DUI for advice on how to handle this situation. You need to abstain from all alcohol until you are 21.

  • Why is the detective dragging his feet on seeking an arrest warrant?

    Detective has stated he has evidence of 17 felony theft charges for an individual that stole and pawned items. However, it has been 3 weeks and he has yet to get an arrest warrant issued. Detective scheduled and "interview" with suspect but noth...

    Kimberly’s Answer

    The detective has to have probable cause for the commission of an offense. If he has not been able to speak with the suspect, he may be waiting for that interview. That interview also may have produced new information that he is following up on. Also, the officer may have been assigned a more time sensitive case. I am sorry you are feeling victimized from what appears may have been a theft of your property. My suggestion is to be diligent in contacting the officer regarding an update in the status of the case, but also to always be respectful. This is just the beginning of a long process. I hope you find some resolution to this situation.

    Good Luck,

  • How can i get my 17 y.o. son on some type of mental and/or 1st time offender program here in cobb county georgia?

    My son was detained at his high school and the school police issued a warrant for possession of marijuana as an adult (however he was released to me as a youth?) with this being his first time ever in any type of trouble and i'm not sure how to pr...

    Kimberly’s Answer

    Your son is considered an adult at 17, so this is a criminal offense in the eyes of the State. The school system has broader search powers than the police. Also, your son may have made incriminating statements about the marijuana possession. However, there are some great programs available for first offenders in Cobb County. It usually requires an attorney to participate in those programs. Money for an attorney here is well spent because he has never been in trouble before. Many attorneys offer a free consultation to determine who you should proceed in the case. I am happy to met with you to discuss your son's case as I often represent young people charged with crimes. You cannot do this alone for your son. You will need to help to protect him from the State. You are welcome to call our office for a consultation at 770.919.9525.

  • Can they give you extra charges after your arrest?

    I went to jail with the charges of dui 0.24, and expired tag. Now I am being charged with reckless conduct and one additional charge unknown to me. additional information- I was parked, sleeping in a church parking lot.

    Kimberly’s Answer

    Yes, the prosecutor has charging decision power and can modify or add charges based on the facts as presented to them. You are definitely going to need the assistance of a well qualified DUI trial attorney for your case. I do not work in Hall and Gwinnett where you are from, but I am happy to help you find someone. Some other attorneys may also answer this post that work exclusively in that area. Please see an attorney and share the facts of your arrest and the pending charges with them.

    Good Luck on your case.

  • What are the chances Pennsylvania will suspend my license if I don't pay a Georgia Super Speeder fine?

    I'll never be back in Georgia, and I know they will suspend my license and report it to Pennsylvania, but what are the chances that PA too would punish me?

    Kimberly’s Answer

    You are playing with fire here. You would most likely get a suspension, but you could also receive a bench warrant for your arrest. Speeding cases in Georgia are criminal offenses punishable by up to a $1000 fine and 12 months in custody. Consult a Georgia lawyer in the area you were stopped in order to determine the best way to handle your case.

  • What should I do for my Georgia "Super Speeder" Ticket?

    Okay, I was pulled over for going 91 in a 70 MPH zone in Georgia, even though I'm a PA resident. The ticket brought a $215 fine, plus the additional $200 under the Georgia Super Speeder law. I do not really want to pay $415 for both of these viola...

    Kimberly’s Answer

    I cannot speak to what will happen to your Pennsylvania license, but this is considered a 3 point violation here in Georgia. The Super Speeder is an additional fee imposed by the State. Since it is expensive for you to travel to Georgia, you may want to hire a local attorney for the area you were stopped in to handle the case for you. This is definitely a case where you at least should consult with an attorney to resolve it. If you need help finding a local attorney for the location in GA you were stopped, I am happy to help you find a colleague that is familiar with that part of the State.
