Pursuant to O,C.G.A. Section 40-5-121(a), upon a first conviction of driving with a suspended license within five years, the defendant will be assessed a minimum fine of $500. The maximum fine is $1,000. A minimum confinement period of two days is often imposed as well. Disorderly conduct, which is a less serious offense than driving with a suspended license, generally yields a lesser fine (usually around $300). If the previous reviewer believes other defendants received lesser fines, it's probably because they were pleading to disorderly conduct or some other minor offense. It thus appears that the previous reviewer's brother-in-law actually received the lowest fine he could have possibly received for the offense to which he pled, and it sounds like he wasn't sentenced to any jail time. Even though he had resolved the issue leading to his license suspension in the first place (his child support arrearages), that did not change the fact that his license was suspended at the time he was arrested. That's probably why the DA wouldn't drop the charges. Under the circumstances, the attorney obtained a very positive outcome for the defendant. My dealings with this attorney have been nothing but positive.
My Brother in law had a ticket for a suspended license due to child support payments. He did not know his license were suspended because he had been in and out of jail for several years due to drug use. He has been clean and sober and going through drug court about to graduate when someone ran a red light and hit him. That is when he found out about the suspended license. He immediately went and got his license and took care of child support before his court date. He asked for a court appointed attorney and got Mr. Wilson. Mr. Wilson refused to tell the judge he already got his license back and ask for charges to be dropped. Instead, he told us that it is standard procedure that his license will be resuspended for 4 months because he submitted a plea and he only asked the judge for a temporary license. This resulted in a $500 fine and 12 months probation even though it has been taken care of! No one else in court that day (close to 100 people) for MUCH worse crimes got more than a $300 fine. This should have beed a dismissed charge but Mr. Wilson failed to give the judge all of the facts.
Mr. Wilson is knowledgeable, gifted, dedicated, and makes his clients feel confident about the outcome of any proceedings that are pending for or against them. I have used Mr. Wilson on a couple of occassions and each outcome was in my favor.
I would refer anyone that needs a great lawyer to Mr. Wilson, because of his dedication to the firm and his clients.
