  • 7 state wiretaps were issued each one was got using the one before it the first tap was never sealed how hard would it be

    To get all wiretaps thrown out and all evidence from those wiretaps

    Amanda’s Answer

    There is no good answer to this question based on the information given. This area of law is very complex and you need to find an experienced attorney with the time and patience to review the case. I would begin researching attorneys in your area with the skill level required to take-on this task and hire them asap. These types of cases are time consuming and need to be thoroughly reviewed. Good luck!

  • Will my boyfriend get alot of prision time for 4 counts of theft by taking felonies

    My boyfriend got introuble in fulton county for the same thing but wasnt sentenced yet then he got introuble for the same stuff in newton he served time for newton charges he got out of prison and fulton sent him a letter to be in court they haven...

    Amanda’s Answer

    I have practiced in Fulto County for many years and certainly agree with the previous answer. However, I can say that people get sentences that would not happen anywhere else in the State of Georgia but in Fulton County-in a good way. Clearly this may not apply to your boyfriend because I don't have enough information about the nature of the charges, the judge or the ADA. Good luck!

  • Can my criminal case be dismissed at the calendar call?

    Simple battery and disordarly conduct.

    Amanda’s Answer

    Sure it's possible but unlikely. Everything depends on the facts of your case and whether the State has a strong case against you. In my experience dismissals usually come very early on in the case or right before trial. Dismissals at calendar call are not as common.

  • Private attorney got elected as da to take office in jan he has represented defendant on other case is currently represented

    Co defendants in current case when he gets in office and conflict motion is file can da use Chinese wall instead of conflict out of this case

    Amanda’s Answer

    I believe that the entire office should be recused. There is an excellent argument that a Chinese Wall would be insufficient in this case because he is the elected official and head of the office. If the DA does recuse the entire office, a special prosecutor will be brought in from another county. I assume you would like the DA off the case based on your question but, if I am wrong and you want the DA office to handle the case, then no motion needs to be made. Hope this helps.

  • Is it likely for someone on probation at Southeast Corrections on a DUI charge to take a hair follicle test for a drug test?

    My court paper work says I can be drug tested every month and I have only done Urine samples but however it says it can be several different types of drug tests. If I am staying out of trouble is it likely they will ask me to submit to a hair samp...

    Amanda’s Answer

    As said above, while possible, it is unlikely they will ask submit hair for sampling. This is mainly due to cost. Urine tests are inexpensive and results are quickly returned. Not so for hair sampling. Good luck.

  • My husband sold my computer can i press charges

    my husband sold my computers for drugs

    Amanda’s Answer

    Attorney Watson explained the process very clearly. However, think long and hard before you do so because it could be extremely difficult, if not impossible, to undue the potential charges should you change your mind down the road and do not want him prosecuted. If you want him to get help for a potential drug addiction, look into out-patient treatment, not the courts. He could face jail or prison if convicted.

  • My fiance was arrested in Cobb county ha ,he's been bonded, he is on probation in Douglas county ga. they have a hold

    When he was arrested it was for domestic violence (im the supposed victim,he NEVER put his hands on me except to stop me from hitting him, I told police that and they wouldn't listen), criminal tresspass (he was long gone before cops were called, ...

    Amanda’s Answer

    Your fiance, as you may well know, will not be released because of the Douglas County hold. He will be transported to Douglas County, probably within the next 10 days. Once he gets to Douglas, he needs to request a Public Defender, or hire an attorney, ASAP. Douglas County is no joke and tends to take new arrests very seriously. An attorny on the underlying charges could also be extremely helpful because of the information you have above-it sounds like no one would listen to you and perhaps an attorney could make a difference. Good luck!

  • How do frist offender work in dekalb ,ga i went to jail for it got out on sign my bond and still waiting to go back to court

    i need help dont knoe wat to do i need to get me a lawyer or a public deffender

    Amanda’s Answer

    I am confused by what you are saying. Nevertheless, you should get an attorney as soon as possible. If you would like to see if you qualify for a Public Defender, call 404-371-2222. Tell them what your charges are and that you would like to see if you qualify for a PD. If you have money and would like to retain an attorney of your choice, do so soon rather than later. I am guessing you were arrested, bonded out and are waiting to go back to court. You have not yet been sentenced. If this is true, you will get notice in the mail to go to court so make sure your address is up to date with the clerk's office. If you have any questions, please call me at (404) 941-1414 and I can answer any questions you may have. Good luck.

  • Got cited for 91 in a 70. Was trying to avoid aggressive driver that tailgated/high beamed me constantly.

    I was driving home after visiting friends in Savannah last night, and at around 2AM, a black Cadillac SRX sped into the view of my rear view and turned on his high beam. The driver then came up next to me and started matching my speed, even as I s...

    Amanda’s Answer

    I am not familiar with any traffic school offered in Georgia so that this does not end up on your record. However, if you have not done so already, hire an attorney ASAP. The speed you were clocked at suggests a Super Speeder violation because you were supposedly travelling over 85 mph on a 4 lane (or over 75 on a 2 lane). This can potentially be extremely expensive and result in points on your license. I typically advise clients who are similarly situated to take a defense driving course to mitigate a sentence but this does not guarantee a dismissal only mitigation to use with the state. Also, a nolo plea may help you in this situation. In any event, hiring an attorney to guide you through the proess is the best idea for you and your license.

    Amanda’s Answer

    Unless your boyfriend's sentencing sheet specifically says that probation can be non-reporting after a certain period of time, he has to continue to report and pay the monthly supervision fee. The alternative is to hire an attorney who can file a motion to terminate probation early. This issue arises often and we have handled many cases such as this. Good luck!
