    I assume by "they" you mean the police? If so, don't hold your breath. Police almost never submit evidence for fingerprint testing and in my experienced about 1% of cases have fingerprint evidence. Also, yoi would be asking the people who arrested you to help clear your case; they have no interest in helping you. If you want to fight the case you will need your own lawyer to advocate for you and fight the police.

  • What is average retainer fee for lawyer in Atlanta for aggravated stalking

    Indicted by Grand Jury in DeKalb County, GA. First time offender but witness and phone call recording in violation of TPO.

    Noah’s Answer

    It's hard to answer that question as there are no set fees for lawyers and the price depends on so many factors. It's like saying what's the average price for a new car. You can get a cheap new car for $15,000 or you can spend $400,000 on an exotic sports car. Also, picking a lawyer based solely on price is a really bad idea. I would suggest you pick three lawyers for either a phone consultation or an in office consultation and then pick the one with the most experience you can afford. I never set a fee until after I've talked to my potential client and really have an understanding of the case.

    Noah’s Answer

    The facts that you provided don't sound like enough to support a false imprisonment claim. What did your ex-girlfriend tell the police? Do you have a court date or is your case still under investigation by the DA's office?

  • Anyone familiar with DeKalb County Judge Barrie's conviction rate for felony aggravated stalking?

    First time aggravated stalking charge against defendant

    Noah’s Answer

    Unless you have a bench trial which I do not recommend in any felony case, and especially your case in front of Judge Barrie, the judge does not decide whether you're guilty or not guilty. That's up to the jury.
    Your case, like every other case, will decided on the facts of the case.

    Sorry but you can't file anything since you are not a lawyer. If you do you could be charged with a crime.

  • Need to hire a lawyer to restrict/ expunge a criminal record.

    Have 1st offenders aggravated stalking

    Noah’s Answer

    Hello. If you entered your plea under the First Offender Act and successfully completed your probation then the Judge should have signed an order discharging you as a First Offender, which will remove the case from your criminal history. Once that happens, it may be possible to get the clerk to remove your case from the electronic docket. Do you know if the Judge signed a discharge order?
