    The case in Georgia will probably not be dismissed on statute of limitations grounds. However, there may be other defenses available depending on the length of time the case has been pending. You should contact an attorney for more information.

    I agree with everything that has been written. The only thing I would add is that you should never tell the law enforcement officer anything untrue. You can confirm your identity and politely tell the officer that you exercise your fifth amendment privilege against self-incrimination.

    There are several methods for shortening a state sentence. A consent order from the judge is one way to accomplish your goal, as long as the order is filed within a certain period of time after the sentence is imposed. You need an attorney to look into this option as well as other options. Steven Berne, Esq. bernelaw.com (404) 881-5335
