    In addition to the insurance issue, you may be issued ticket for leaving the scene of an accident. Assuming the tickets is written properly, it wont cause license issues. However, any cops mess up on the ticket and it could cause license issues.

    First, it depends on the jurisidiction where the new charge is pending. Some jurisidictions in Ga. will try to put you into a DUI court program involving extensive treatment. In most places, you are looking at significant jail time if convicted. You need to speak with a lawyer who may be able to get rid of these charges, or at least mitigate them so that you don't lose your livelihood.

  3. Valid reasons to file a writ of habeas corpus

    1 lawyer answer

    In recent cases, the appellate courts have granted habeas actions for misleading information in plea negotiations. However, if the public defender told you the probation period was 2 years, you were standing in front of the judge as he/she pronounced sentence and might have been able to withdraw the plea. In addition, even if a jury found you not guilty, you would always have an arrest on your record. It can't hurt to file a habeas action, however, they are very difficult to win. Some...

    It depends on why the battery was dismissed. If it was dismissed without being accused, the answer is maybe. Ga. law is really tough to get a case expunged.

    In some states possession of marijuan can cause a license suspension, even if the person is not driving. However, this is a case where the "equal access" doctrine may apply. If a person has access to the space where the drugs were fund and your boyfriend can show this, he might be able to present a great argument to a judge or jury during a trial, that someone else had possession of the marijuana. The state must prove that boyfriend knew the pot was in the car. If I put a joint in his...

  6. How can I fight a parking ticket?

    Sometimes justice is expensive. A parking ticket does not carry points in most jurisdictions and does not tax your insurance. However, if you want to get out of it, you have no shot other than to appear and contest the case. Good luck.

    It is the state's job to prove you guilty. Is there any video evidence of him walking out of the store with the merchandise? Will he take responsibility and tell the authorities that you had nothing to do with it? In criminal law, the state is alleging that you are an accesory to your cousin's taking of the goods. You are free to testify that you had nothing to do with it. How long have yo worked for the company? Have you had any other issues? Do you have a clean record? The state has...

    Anyone can go to a Magistrate to ask for a warrant to be taken out. However, in this fact scenario, most judges would view this as a civil dispute. Did your mom have a will? Did your sister in fact use the money to pay bills? Most magistrates would not sign a warrant on these facts. My legal advice is to sue your sister in small claims court for your share of the money. My personal advice is to sit down and discuss the situation with your sister and the other family members before...

    You can submit a written motion explaining your situation and why the cost should be reduced. Unfortunately, judges are hesitant to grant such motions becsue the court system wants every dollar they can get. In addition, you can also ask your probation officer for a hearing the next time that he or she has revocations in your judge's court room.

  10. Consequences to a 21 year old, who isnt related to, gives 18 year old alcohol?

    If you are asking the question and the answer of giving booze to minors sounds a little fishy, then you probably already know the answer. It is against the law to do this, in some states you can klose your license and go to jail for furnishing alcohol. Also, if one of those kids got drunk and had an accident, your friend could be civily liable and be forced to pay monetary damages. A lawyer will not give his/her blessing to your friend, sorry.
