    renewal of your license will not be possible if the unpaid citations are not resolved. the dds records will almost certainly reflect the unpaid citation. also be aware that an outstanding warrant may be issued.

    in Georgia there must be probable cause to believe that a crime is or has occured. there is a very bad case from the united states supreme court that allows evidence gathered from the stop even if the officer had an ulterior motive see: Whren v. United States, 517 U.S. 806, 116 S.Ct. 1769, 135 L.Ed.2d 89 (1996). call: R.

    the case can be continued as many times as the trial court allows. imho it sounds like there should be no hurry to get to court. have you considered treatment for your sister, the court will be pleased if your sister has used this time wisely to correct any issues.

    Very very seldom will this procedure ever work. The State would theoretically have to do this for everyone. Georgia is very aggressive when it comes to prosecuting dui cases. Hire an attorney to navigate this.

    i would also agree w/ Bob, however the bond may be higher if there were other traffic charges along with the dui (i.e. lane violation, speeding etc.) generally the max fine is the stated bond amount to make sure you come to court.

    In georgia short answer is no. there must be an element of "operation". also a crafty lawyer may argue the statute requires some form of "movement".

    there is not effect at this time, unless you have been convicted. many applications however will ask if you have been arrested. in my experience you will not suffer any harm, however you must be truthful in your application to avoid penalty.

    if you do not go the state can continue the case, or prosecute the case w/o you being there. only if you have gotten proper notice do you have to be present, you may want to go just to be on the safe side, you may help be a part of the negotations that will benefit your husband
