    I agree with my colleagues who say that the person needs to retain an experienced criminal defense attorney and let that attorney walk them through the process. The fact that you indicate the statement was made "under oath" indicates a possible perjury charge. I see the message originates in Newnan, GA, if the statement was made there, just know that Coweta County can be a tough jurisdiction.

    This is referred to as an civil asset forfeiture. You have an "innocent owner" defense. If you have been served with notice of a civil forfeiture you must respond within thirty days or your claim is waived. Contact an attorney experienced in handling civil asset forfeiture.

    That's the code that's generated when a notice to appear in court is generated. Do you see a court date for him on OJS? Does the case have a D# or a CR #?

    I agree with my colleagues who say that if you do not pay restitution then you face the possibility of having your probation revoked. We do not know the facts of your case nor the terms of your sentence. But just turning your back on that obligation is probably a bad idea. Perhaps speak to an attorney about filing a motion to modify.

    You have not provided enough information for us to really advise you. Is the case already indicted? Who has been representing him thus far? Three years is a long time. There are potentially motions to be filed regarding the delay in bringing the case to trial. Your cousins attorney should be pushing this case to trial.

    How are you able to post online from jail? Probably not smart if by doing so you are violating a jail rule. This could cause you more problems with probation. Failure to report and pay are technical violations. Normally the max that can be revoked on a technical violation is two years. If this is a first offender sentence they can revoke and resentence you up to the maximum allowable by law but must give you credit for time you successfully complete. But they really cannot revoke you for non-...

    2-for-1 time is at the discretion of the Sheriff's Department. A failed drug screen and a new arrest could possibly form the basis of a probation revocation. An experienced defense attorney should be able to help get you in the best position possible.

    A PO could get an order signed in a day if they wanted to. But if they tolled it now the worst thing that could happen is you could be revoked for a day and spend a day in jail. Unless I am reading this incorrectly, there is no time left on the case and it will expire tomorrow with or without those last few classes being completed. This all assumes that the PO does not already have a warrant on the case.

    Assuming no warrant for probation violation is currently active, thus stopping (tolling) the time, the probation will expire next week along with the requirement that you complete three more classes.

    If you have falsely accused or implicated someone in the crime of aggravated child molestation you, as my colleague said, you must contact everyone possible and let them know that you were under the influence and that you were not truthful. This crime carries hefty prison time. Even just being accused of a crime of this type can ruin someone' s life.
