    Given the amount of timne from the last incident, the answer to this question should be yes you can get the license back. Of course this is assuming that your recollection matches your criminal history and dds records. You should obtain a copy of your criminal history and a 7 year mvr (Motor Vehicle Record). Take them to any qualified attorney in your area and they should be able to give you a more definitive answer.

    You should immediately contact the court and explain why you did not appear in court. The court in its discretion may have taken a bench warrant for your arrest and/or sent a letter to GA DDS to suspend your drivers license. By acting quickly you can lessen the damage to your license and possibly avoid arrest on a warrant for failure to appear. You should consult an attorney in that area familiar with the court (Try Allen Trapp) With regard to the superspeeder portion, if convicted this...

    Assuming this is a second DUI in 5 years, then you would not immediately be eligible for a limited permit. Putting aside any potential Administrative License Suspension (ALS) suspension issues, you would not be eligible for a limited permit for at least 120 days. You would only be eligible for a permit after a 120 day hard suspension IF a judge was willing to sign an order and IF you had completed an alcohol and drug evaluation and were engaged in alcohol/drug treatment. If the judge would...

    It appears from your post that the police department is investigating a serious crime (aggravated assault, and/or homicide). Given the seriousness of the crime, it is not uncommon for law enforcement officials to canvas potential witnesses and to try to persuade them to cooperate in the investigation. With that said, as you have already provided law enforcement with your account of what you saw, you do not have a duty to continue to cooperate with them absent a grand jury subpoena or other...

    I work in the City of Marietta Municipal Court all the time. You should definitely look at the possibility of obtaining a lwayer on these charges. The Prosecutor in that jurisdiction can be reasonable at times. The charge is complicated by the prior Public Drunk charge potentially. When you speak with the lawyer you contact you need to know the specifics regarding that old case (when was it, what were the facts surrounding it, was the record expunged or was pre-trial diversion just...

    Due to the felony charges, your friend is facing substantial criminal charges. In my estimation, the criminal case is the place she needs to start at. As a former law enforcement officer in the Metro-Atlanta area, I would encourage you to have her (as the client) immediately begin calling criminal defense attorneys in the area. You can find qualified attorneys by searching the internet in your local area and reading reviews or here on www.avvo.com. She needs to be the one to call the...

  7. Is there anyway to fight a "failure to maintain lane" ticket

    1 lawyer answer

    This type of ticket is generally somewhat difficult to beat in court because the issue of whether or not you were commiting the infraction often comes down to a witness credibility issue (IE: Your word against the officer). With that said, you may want to take the opportunity to go to court either in the Lawrenceville Municipal Court or in Gwinnett Recorder's Court and speak to the Prosecutor about your case. With your type of driving record the Prosecutor may be willing to work with you in...

    You should definitely call the police department and file an incident report. Depending on your age this could result in very serious charges for the photographer / blackmailer. You may also want to have a civil lawyer send a demand letter outlining legal action and demanding the photos be deleted and not published.

    Especially given your Green Card Status you need to hire a qualified attorney to guide you in this matter. Generally the City of Atlanta will dismiss the charge. If they wouldnt, then the 30 day reset is ok provided they DO NOT make you waive jury trial, This type of charge would almost certainly be Nolle Prosequi (Dismissed) in Fulton County State Court given that you have a current license. It could take a while though to go the Fulton County Route. Hire an Attorney.

    If the 2nd marijuana charge (VGCSA < 1 Ounce Misdmeanor) was ajudicated under the conditional discharge act OCGA 16-13-2(b) then this is an ajudication before sentence and should not have been reported at all to Georgia DDS. You need to clarify with your lawyer exactly what type of conditional discharge or first offender plea you entered. If the collateral consequence of a suspended license was not known to you at the time you entered your plea then your lawyer may be able to withdraw the plea...
