    Jerry’s Answer

    This situation is so poorly defined, and the record of the offender is not stated. Therefore, the perpetrator is facing from zero days in custody to multiple years in custody. When a criminal defense attorney evaluates a case, he or she MUST have all the details. That is why we implore our clients to tell us the WHOLE truth, and not "sugar coat" anything. We won't tell what we know to the prosecutor, but we must be able to see how we are going to "pitch" an alternative sentence (other than jail time) when we start negotiating.

  • I had court a week ago in Georgia for a DUI and was put on pretrial. What will happen if I fail my first drug screen?

    I will fail the test for marijuana that I used before my court date and my first pretrial meeting is a week after court. Do they expect me to be clean? If I pee clean will they take it easier on me?

    Jerry’s Answer

    This is definitely court-dependent and judge-dependent. Some courts have a fairly routine method of addressing such violations. In Cobb County State Court, the penalty is generally 7 days in jail for the first failure. 14 days for the second.
    I would say that MOST courts will plan to "get your attention" about what BEING ON PROBATION means. Probation is a GIFT, that allows you to stay out of jail so long as you BEHAVE as the sentencing sheet indicates that you must.

  • My son gave false name to police because license had been suspended.

    He has a court date this week, how can he get a public defender. What kinda sentence could he be facing? We've never dealt with anything concerning court. I will appreciate any advice.

    Jerry’s Answer

    Each case is case-specific. The age of the offender can play a role. Also, the court that your son will appear in can be an important variable. Youthful offenders can get a break such as pre-trial diversion in come courts. Be certain to get an attorney for this, because jail time is possible.

    Your very best way to get payback for being falsely accused, which INFLATED police reports clearly are, is to hire a skilled cross-examiner to ferret out the truth. Full investigation and then using rapid-fire questions while the witness is under oath can prepare this case for trial. Having a transcript of any sworn testimony, or being able to show that the testimony does not match the police report (which is like an affidavit) case help you win your case. Video from the police cruiser can also prove the point, or possibly video evidence from a private security camera that is located by your law firm at the location of your traffic stop.

  • Can my probation be extended if all payments are not met

    I'm on intensive probation if I complete all the years doing my cases but without paying fines will probation be extended after the the years poor can I be violated?

    Jerry’s Answer

    This is a difficult question to answer without more data. For example, WHY do you need more time? Loss of employment or needing to pay medical bills for a family member might be a great reason for a judge to give you more time. However, if your probation period is nearly over, the Judge will be less willing to delay payments, as a general rule.

  • Can I request a certain date to start my jail term for a second DUI. My last was 9 years ago

    I have had nothing on my record other than a DUI 9 years ago

    Jerry’s Answer

    It is unlikely that you can in most Georgia jurisdictions. Some judges are more flexible, but the sentencing judge for your case usually does not "vary" in his or her tendencies. Your DUI attorney should be very familiar with this and be able to tell you what to expect.
