  • Reduced charges?

    If charges have already been lowered before the pretrial conference does that mean a plea agreement is in the works and the pretrial is to plea guilty or no contest?

    Gerald’s Answer

    If the charges have been reduced that means that the State either did not have sufficient evidence to prove greater charge or your attorney has bargained for a reduction. A pretrial conference's purpose is for the judge to hear the facts of the case from the State and the Defense, any mitigation evidence, and then determine what sentence he or she would give if a plea was entered.

    Either battery, simple battery, or family violence battery, it all depends on the level of injury to the child. However, there maybe several defenses to any charge against the parent as Georgia allows reasonable corporal punishment by parents of a minor child.

  • Is it true my record will say convicted on it under the first offenders act until i am off probation?

    I was under the impression Im not convicted unless I mess up while on probation. And that I can legally answer no i haven't been convicted on an application. Im on probation now Ive completed 1 out of 4 years and my record says convicted on it

    Gerald’s Answer

    Under First Offender, your adjudication of guilt is withheld and if you successfully complete the first offender then you will be discharged and acquitted. You can legally answer i have not been convicted of a crime. You need to pull your record from GCIC and correct that mistake asap. The arrest should only show now that you are on active probation.

  • Is it legal for a person to have a Georgia's driver's license, but Flordia tags on their vehicles ?

    Is it legal for a person to have a Georgia's driver's license, but Flordia tags on their vehicles if their business is in Flordia?

    Gerald’s Answer

    Yes and No, it is illegal to live in the State of Georgia for longer than 30 days and fail to register any new or used vehicle in the State of Georgia that such person owns. Under OCGA 40-2-20(c) any person who fails to register said vehicle as required under the Code shall be guilty of a misdemenor. However, if the car is owned by the business the car should be registered where the business principal place of business is located, so to be on the safe side you may want to register the car in Georgia.
