    Here goes: For the ticket you received, go to Court and see what options the Court offers you to keep your driver's license. If there is an attorney in your area that is affordable, I would suggest taking him/her with you. Notify your insurance carrier of the incident and that it wasn't your fault as supported by the police officer and police report. Then, go see an attorney that handles Personal Injury matters. Your personal injury lawyer may have a referral for a criminal defense attorney...

    Your admission is what the officer is depending on to accuse you of possessing (drinking) alcohol while being under the age of 21. If you can afford counsel, you should consider hiring an attorney to possibly resolve this matter in a way that does not affect you negatively in the future. Best of luck to you!

    Mr. Smith is right; it is difficult to answer this question and advise you properly. I suggest you make it a point to meet with your attorney immediately and if there is any evidence that is being held by the State, request your attorney make the court aware of it properly.

    So long as the intercourse was consensual, then she would not have a reason to claim he raped her. There is no suit for pregnancy that can be brought however, if she is pregnant and has a child that is confirmed to be his, he would be responsible for the child and child support, etc.

  6. If a judge gave me until the 14th to complete my community service and pay my fines, how can my probation officer tell me it has

    The court's ORDER is the most important instruction in a case. Obviously you do not want your probation officer to ruin your day by placing a warrant for your arrest in anticipation of the hearing but contact your attorney (from the case) and clarify the Courts Order as well as advise them what the probation officer is telling you. This sounds like a probation officer's attempt to make sure you resolve the community service in advance of your due date.

    It sounds like he has counsel and I highly suggest you follow their advice. No, he can't be tried twice for the same thing and "it depends" if Gwinnett can reindict him and add a charge and avoid double jeopardy (again). Definitely consult with counsel further.

    It looks like the problem is the inability to pay and seldom an issue the court sends people to jail. Now that you have the money, I would have the probation paid off and do it before you are arrested on the warrant. Courts often are frustrated by the sudden payment once you are incarcerated; they think the inability to pay was just an excuse before. Best of luck to you.

    I have been in this position with clients 100's of times. I think you should make all efforts to get a job - or have a doctor's order that you cannot work. Bring proof of all of these issues to the Court's attention and use them as a further explanation for why you cannot make payments. THe probation officer will surely have something to say if you stop reporting so - do not do that. Most courts do not incarcerate probationers for their inability to pay. The issue they have is usually...

    NO, you are unable to expunge your record during the pending term of probation - sorry. Keep fighting for the job though, something will turn up.
