    It is highly unlikely that the court would schedule such a matter again. But this is Fulton Co we are talking about, which is large enough that anything is possible. There is no prohibition against another applicant seeking a hearing. Indeed, most applicants are going to be given due consideration. If you are noticed for yet another hearing, make sure you inform the Clerk in advance that the matter already was heard and the application denied. My only concern for you is that if the dismissal...

  2. Can I own a gun in the state of GA if my live in boyfriend is a convicted felon?

    Read the sentence order carefully. Is your boyfriend prohibited from residing anywhere where guns are present? I would suggest meeting with his probation officer and explaining that you are licensed to own a weapon and you will store it only in your purse when at home or in the car and that he will never have access to it and see what the PO says? The problem I for see is that so many POs do not care what reasonable solutions you can propose. When they don't know the answer, the answer is No....

  3. Expungement on domestic violent arrest

    No. An expungement in Ga is available only for cases which were not referred for prosecution. Your plea to disorderly conduct constitutes a conviction. Convictions cannot be expunged. However, some jurisdictions occasionally do provide in advance for expungement upon completion of certain Pretrial diversion programs. Still, I find it difficult to believe that a military recruiter would deny your entry into the service simply because of a single disorderly conviction. If you must vacate the...

  4. Is it possible to get my husband time served or all of his sentence on probation?

    It is totally inappropriate for the judge to have told you he would sentence your husband to 15 years if convicted! That essentially coerced your husband into entering his guilty plea. That alone could be a sufficient basis to withdraw the plea. The problem is that he would then be facing trial and the plea offer would most likely be withdrawn. The maximum penalty for aggravated assault is 20 years in prison. After sentencing, your husband is at the mercy of the state prison system and the...

    He is entitled to a preliminary hearing to find out the precise nature of the accusation against him. He also has a right to a bond hearing within 10 days of asking for one. What county is he being detained in at this time? Is that the same county in which the charges have been filed? Please hire your own attorney immediately because evidence can be disappearing as we speak! See my website at www.ckclawfirm.com for a clear explanation of the criminal justice path your son is now on.

    Remember that your District Attorney is an elected official. Try writing him a letter. If you don't receive an adequate response, your next letter is to the editorial section of the local paper!

  7. Can I leave the state of GA with my child? I am not legally married.

    Call the police to help you leave safely. Obtain a Temporary Restraining Order against him at the Superior Court in the County where you live. If you are the biological mother, the child is legally yours. If you were not married when the child was born and the father has not filed an action to legitimate the child, then he has no legal rights to the child. You would then have every legal right to take your child and move away, even if he is listed on the birth certificate.

    Although the Probate Court Judge may consider your application as one showing no conviction and decide to issue the weapons permit, it is more likely that the permit will be denied and that you will be arrested on the active arrest warrant. If Arizona declines to pay for your extradition, you will be released but that could be after a few days. Or they may pay to extradict you to AZ to stand trial. Do not feel pressured to plead over the phone! Hire a criminal defense lawyer in the county in AZ...

    I have defended a virtually identical case in Federal Court and Atlanta in the last two years. The federal authorities already know who you are. They probably know exactly what you have done. They will want to question you soon and they will know the answers to every question before they ask it. They will be trying to catch you in a lie and add an obstruction charge to the mix. You need an attorney and fast. An attorney can help broker a meeting for you to come clean with the truth about...

    Hi. Your question is about expungement but in truth your case is still pending! You should file a Demand for Speedy Trial. You are innocent until proven guilty beyond all reasonable doubt. If you didn't do anything, fight for your innocence. Once you get your case dismissed or win your acquittal, then there are new rules in Georgia for expungement of an arrest record. Good luck to you. If possible, you should retain a private lawyer to more aggressively pursue this matter for you.
