    You will most likely get first offender probation for this virtually anywhere in Georgia. Assuming this is your first conviction. However, you need to retain a lawyer immediately because this will take work. Georgia prosecutors do not like sale cases. So they have to be worked on by a good lawyer to get this result.

    I'm sorry to hear that you are going through this. However, there is really no way to not seal juvenile records. Those are very closely guarded things in Georgia and are very tightly controlled. Proceedings in juvenile court are not considered "crimes." They are considered to be delinquent acts. He could, however, do time. The aggravated sodomy count, at least, makes him eligible to serve about 5 years potentially I believe. But he will not have felony convictions for these.

    You need to get in front of the sentencing judge and explain this. Start by talking to the probation officer explain that you can't pay but offer to take the test anyway. Then ask the probation officer to take you to the judge to modify your sentence. The argument here is that they can't lock you up for being poor.

    The press can use his name, but they most likely won't. Most newspapers have a policy of not naming minors. I agree with my colleagues, you need a lawyer immediately. This is what we call a capital felony. Very serious business.

    If I were you I'd go to court. If you pay the fine in advance, it will have the same effect as a guilty plea. That means that you will definitely get three points on your license. If you go to court, you will most likely be able to talk to the prosecutor and either work out a Nolo Contendre plea or get the charge reduced to something that doesn't carry points. What will happen is that the judge or the prosecutor will call the list of names of people who are supposed to be in court. When...

    If this is a condition of bond then yes. Courts have wide latitude in imposing bond conditions. But a judge has to order it. If the judge has not ordered it, then this would constitute an illegal search. But like I said, if there is a bond condition ordering and authorizing pretrial screens, then yes it is legal.

    You never lost your right to vote my friend. First Offender treatment keeps that intact even while on probation. The firearm is a different story. As you note, First Offender probationers are not allowed to have those. If you have successfully completed your First Offender sentence AND HAVE BEEN DISCHARGED, then you may possess a firearm again. However, before you go getting a firearm, check with the clerk of the court that gave you the sentence to make sure that the judge has signed a...

  9. If a felon enters a gun range can this be considered constructive possession( with a child) would it include child endangerment?

    That's a very interesting set of facts. The law against felons possessing firearms are pretty broad and enforced pretty strictly. There is a good argument that he could be charged with constructive possession as you alluded to. Having said that, based on my experience, this man sounds dangerous. If I were you I'd get an attorney to help with this.

    The character of both the victim and the accused is generally inadmissible in criminal trials. However, there are some exceptions. It sounds like from what I can understand from your question that the State found some credibility issues with you. You could try to talk with the DA and see if you can change their mind.
