    I agree with the two previous answers. I just wanted to add a piece of advice. You are not trying to convince the probation officer to reinstate, but the judge. Also, the more people you can bring with you the better, friends, other family members or church clergy that would stand up for him would all help your case in front of a judge. If you can afford it, a lawyer would be a good thing. Unfortunately, in my personal experience, a public defender is not often given on a pure revocation...

  2. Out of state vehicle registration question

    A little more information would be necessary to answer this fully, but any moving violation that your boyfriend or anyone else received while driving your motorcycle would be theirs and theirs alone. Moving violations are assessed against the driver, not the owner, not the motorcycle :). However, there are potential pitfalls to your current situation, your boyfriend could cause for the registration of the bike to be suspended if he were convicted of certain crimes or he could damage the bike,...

    I agree with the previous answer but would like to add the follwing. Georgia does have a misdemeanor charge of harrassing phone calls, OCGA 16-11-39.1, so I wouldn't call him on the phone again.

  4. What can i do about a simple battery family vilolence charge against my childs father i dont want to proceed with?

    As a former domestic violence prosecutor I have had experience handling these types of cases. I assume that he is currently charged in State Court in Richmond County. Simple battery family violence is a serious issue and you truly need to contemplate whether or not you should "drop" the charges. The best thing you can do is talk to the Solicitor's Office Victim's Assistance Program. It would also be a good idea to talk to the prosecutor assigned to your case. If you call the Solicitor's Office (...

    Actual physical control is a possible defense to your charge, the deputy may have assumed that you were assisting in the control of the vehicle in some way, perhaps helping with steering, or something along those lines. It would be in your best interest to hire an attorney becuase a DUI combined with a DUI child endangerment can have severe consequences on your privilege to drive in the state of georgia, much more so than just a DUI itself. Although it seems you do not have a valid license...

    It really depends on 1) what you were on probation for and 2) what you did to violate probation. As to your P.S. the answer is yes, sometimes judges will give you credit toward your fine for some time served, but not at a very high rate. For example, serve 4 months, they knock off $400. Get a criminal defense attorney before you turn yourself in, he/she can represent you at the revocation hearing and advise you on what's most likely to happen and what to do. Good luck! Tiffini

  9. Missed court date for a dui,bench warrent issued recently arrested what would be new bond amount

    A new bond is not something you are guaranteed, the judge could decide to hold you in jail until trial. Bonds also depend on a number of things, what other charges you had along with your DUI, if this is a first DUI, etc. Also your question is unclear... have the bench warrant been issued recently or have you been arrested on a bench warrant recently? The best thing to do would be to contact a DUI defense lawyer. He/she could guide you on handling the bench warrant and your underlying...

    It really just depends on who the judge choses to believe, your daughter or the officer. It would be a hard case to defend, a good local lawyer would probably be able to help you out, possibly make a deal with the prosecutor to reduce the speed. In GA, speeding less than 15mph should be a zero point violation. It's been awhile since I was a prosecutor so I'm not making any promises - I'm 90% sure on that. Also please remind your daughter that while she is under 21 a speeding charge 24 mph...
