    DUI's are not reduced simply because it is your first offense. However, an experienced lawyer may be able to identify an evidentiary or search & seizure issue that might convince the prosecutors to reduce or dismiss your case. You need to retain an attorney to help in your defense. That same attorney can assist you with the DMV appeal. As you know, you only have 10 days from the date of your arrest to file this appeal. Call me if I can be of assistance. Allen R. Knox 125 TownPark Drive,...

    Probably your only chance at a defense will be a legal technicality. DUI cases are sometimes won when the officer makes a mistake and the test results get thrown out of court. Very seldom, but sometimes, these cases are also won on timing issues. Only an experienced lawyer will know if you have a defense to this case. Otherwise, upon conviction, you will lose your license. The State may also terminate your employment. Note that you already are losing your license if you have not filed an...

    Both crimes are misdemeanors subject to maximum sentences of 12 months in jail and/or a $1000 fine. Your total exposure is 24 months and $2000, plus you can also be required to submit to drug screens, a substance abuse evaluation and treatment, anger management and/or family violence counseling, etc. These cases are often handled as probation matters. However, I have known some judges to require 20-30 days of incarceration, even on the first incident. Allen R. Knox 125 TownPark Drive,...

    You are going to need the assistance of an experienced attorney. Therefore, you better borrow the money. This sounds like more than a DUI. You are likely to get charged with Serious Injury by Vehicle (a felony offense which typically is accompanied by prison time). Who was driving the vehicle is a question of fact for the jury to decide. There may be physical or circumstantial evidence showing that your cousin was the driver and not you. Only an experienced attorney will be able to help...

    Both you and your husband need an experienced defense attorney to handle your defense. This is not a circumstantial evidence case. It is an accomplice testimony case. However, it sounds like they may have some additional evidence on you in the form of some boxes of pseudoephedrine that can be traced back to your purchase. That will be difficult for you to explain if that is the case. If it is just the "accomplices" saying that you bought pills for it, then it is easier to defend....

    If the judge has taken that attitude with you, you need to get an attorney now. The next time you are in court, this judge is going to arraign you regardless of whether you have an attorney. Moreover, you only have 10 days after arraignment to file motions in your case. Otherwise, you have to get special permission from this very unaccommodating judge to extend the time for filing motions. It sounds like that is not going to happen. Therefore, you need to make arrangements with an attorney...

  8. Can a 16yr old boy go to jail in georgia for having sex with a 12yr old girl.

    Yes. At 16, the boy is of the age of consent in Georgia. That also makes him responsible for engaging in sexual acts with persons under the age of 16. The question really is whether he will go to juvenile court or adult court. If the case involves an act of sodomy (oral or anal sex), or if the 12 year old girl was injured by the sexual act, the boy can get charged as an adult for the crime of Aggravated Child Molestation. Otherwise, this case will be handled in juvenile court.

    In most instances, documents can be amended and errors corrected. In this instance, you must request a hearing within 10 days of your arrest or your license is automatically suspended. You have highlighted an error on a form. However, you may have several defenses to both the license suspension and the underlying DUI of which you are not aware because you are not a trained and experienced lawyer. You need to retain counsel ASAP.

    Probable cause is a very low standard to meet. The odor of alcohol plus you being behind the wheel and your refusal to perform field sobriety may very well meet that standard. However, it is an issue that can be addressed in your defense through a motion to suppress. Moreover, from the facts as you have stated them, you appear to have a very good defense to the charge. You will need an attorney to help you with your defense. In particular, to successfully present a motion to suppress (...
