    In terms of the civil liability for the damage, you will want to notify your insurance company of the incident. You will be liable for the damage to the vehicles. My concern for you however, perhaps more so than civil liability, is that you are likely facing criminal prosecution for Driving Under the Influence, Theft and Criminal Damage to Property. If you have been arrested or are facing charges, you need to hire someone to help you with the criminal case. You can feel free to call or e-...

    Georgia's "Party to a Crime" statute is often used unfairly. It allows for arrest, prosecution and conviction of any person who paticipates in a crime. The law is often unfair because it is difficult for people in your situation to prove that you were not activiely involved in any crime but, rather, an unwitting participant. Having said that, it is always possible to negotiate the dismissal of charges, the reduction of charges and/or a first offender plea with probation. I am happy to help -...

    Typically, courts will not transfer misdemeanor probation. I could not tell from your question whether the marijuana charge was a felony or a misdemeanor. There may be another way to accomplish the same thing. Courts will often allow a probationer to report by phone or by mail. That way, you could be in NYC and still report to your probation officer in Georgia. I would think if you are already reporting to a parole officer, the court would not have a problem with this. You could discuss...

    I do not know of a way to reverse the loss of First Offender treatment, but there may be another option. First, you might want to get a copy of your criminal history to see exactly what is on there. If the conviction is there and the First Ofenser was revoked, you might be able to obtain a pardon. The Georgia Department of Pardons and Parole, in some instances will allow for a pardon. If you go to the website, you can find the application. Its been a while since I have looked at the site,...

    I have practiced criminal law for fifteen years. I have seen great attorneys and not so great attorneys. Good or bad, I have never seen an attorney intentionally sabotage a case. The main way we stay in business is through referals from previous clients. That is a pretty good reason for us to do our best. When people call me and say they are unhappy with their lawyer, I generally find that there is a communication issue. In other words, the unhappy client does not know what the attorney...

    I have found that prosecutors are pretty reasonable when it comes to dealing with young, first time offenders who have exemplary backgrounds like you. Of course, some of it depends on what county you are in, what judge you get, what prosecutor you get, etc. I would definitely recommend that you hire an attorney. You have a lot riding on this.

    The last several clients I have dealt with have received two-for-one credit, however, I always tell my clients to expect to do the entire 30 days.

  8. Sentenced to 12 months, another county has hold on inmate. If not picked up will he be released after the 12 months?

    The quick answer is that, as long as there is a hold for the probation violation, your loved one will not be released. In other words, if Douglas County has not gotten him within the 12 month period (which I am sure is actually shorter b/c your loved one will likely be paroled), the Gwinnett County sentence would expire and Douglas County would have a specific number of days to come get the person. You should get a lawyer to help with the Douglas County case. If the probation department is...

    I dealt with a very similar situation and it was a two year nightmare. I had to go back and obtain documents (in this case from 1979), then file suit against the clerk and the probation department to get them to enter a correct disposition on the court records. Once I got that taken care of, I had to contact the Georgia Bureau of Investigations to get them to correct the criminal history. Basically, it can be done, but it cannot be done quickly or easily.

  10. How much time is he facing with an armed robbery charge??

    Armed Robbery is considered one of the seven worst offenses in the State of Georgia. It carries a mandatory minimum sentence of ten years (this is without parole). Depending on your boyfriend's record, along with the circumstances of the case, Armed Robbery can carry a life sentence. As a former Assistant District Attorney, I can tell you without hesitation that this is serious and you need to hire a lawyer as soon as possible.
