I practice in Gwinnett often. If part of you getting a bond was the ankle monitor then I would not even attempt to try and get it removed unless you have been on it for a minimum of 6mos. At that time you can have an attorney speak to the monitoring company and then maybe do a bond modification to remove the ankle monitor. As far as indictment time is concerned, it has been averaging about 6 months to indictment unless you have an attorney that will speak to the prosecutor.
The Statute of limitation for Statutory Rape is 7 years. If case pending since May of this year it is still fresh in the minds of the criminal justice system and they may be investigating or trying to contact the victim to decide if it will be indicted or not. The person charged should get an attorney for this case even though it has not been indicted yet. Sometimes talks before indictment can take place between the attorney and the prosecutor that may prevent the case from being indicted.
He definitely needs an attorney to do this for him. There is a lot more to just typing up something. If he really wants a shot at getting reduced time, he needs someone who has the skill to file and argue that on his behalf.
You question has many parts to consider. If you have already pled to the charge and you are out on bond then it looks like you would wait outside of jail because if the Judge wanted you to wait in jail that's where you would be now. If you have NOT pled yet, there are several things that can happen: 1) if it a drug court program you probably will be allowed to wait for space in the program without going back in jail. 2) If it is NOT a drug court program but part of your plea depending on how...
Burglary carries 1- 20 years for each incident. If he has no prior convictions he can get probation or he can be made to do some jail time. You definitely need an attorney to help him resolve his case in a way that will not mess him up in the future by having a record. If you need an attorney feel free to contact my office at 404-522-5056.
I agree with others. Your probation officer has to submit the discharge paperwork BUT once that is done you may still need to do additional paperwork to make sure it is removed from your criminal history so others can not see it. Law enforcement will always be able to see it. You should hire an attorney to help you with that paperwork to make sure your record is cleared.
It is legal for you to date whether the parents like it or not. I would comment to say that if what you say is true(about sex) I would leave it that way for a while since the parents have mixed feelings about you. However, she is legally eligible to date someone of your age.
Usually if its the first time it would just carry a probable probation sentence. However, everything depends on the facts, the prosecutor and the Judge. He definitely needs to get an attorney to help him/her negotiate the case.
