    I have several questions. Is the case a felony or misdemeanor? What was he originally charged with? Is it a first offender sentence? He should have a probation hearing scheduled very soon. The sooner you hire counsel to represent him at that hearing, the sooner his case will be resolved. Without knowing more information, I cannot answer whether he'll be out by 6/30. My office is in Cobb County. Contact me at (678) 310-7333 if you'd like to discuss your case for free.

    I'm not sure what the problem is. By reporting the charges, the police, social workers, and members of the prosecutor's office can provide victim services for Mr. X's daughter. It seems that she's being harmed further by not reporting the charges. Contact local counsel to determine the proper route.

    Did he accept a plea deal or was he convicted after trial? There are means by which you can file paperwork to modify a sentence, but you need to speak with a lawyer and go over the specific facts in detail to determine whether this is a viable option. A special needs child would be one factor to put in the motion, however, by itself is probably not enough.

    Depends on the question that's asked. If it asks for convictions, then list Reckless. If it asks for arrests, then it's best to be forthcoming. Much easier to explain on the front end than if they find out later.

    Mr. Pines' answer is correct. Additionally, if the charges were found to be false, I would consult with a civil attorney to discuss options for a lawsuit. You certainly have damages.

    Has Texas filed a petition to revoke his probation? His time on probation is generally stopped while he's in custody on other charges, so don't expect that probation simply went away. Contact local counsel in Texas to determine if there is an active warrant. If so, counsel can arrange surrender rather than extradition.

    If you have a problem with your council you should tell him/her so. If that doesn't work, notify the judge. If that doesn't work, don't take the plea and hire a new lawyer. You're entitled to a good lawyer that works for you.

    If you have a problem with your fines and fees, simply ask your probation officer to give you an itemized list. This should also be stated on your original sentencing order.

  9. Will I be drug tested on my first meeting with my probation officer? My charge is disorderly conduct and I'm a 1st time offender

    The first test is a baseline test. Subsequent tests should contain lower levels of the tested drug. Marijuana stays in your system longer than other drugs. It sounds like you're probation period will be fairly short. Toe the line, stay away from those who use, and you'll be fine.
