    Charges are rarely dismissed without intervention by an attorney. If your brother was arrested, the police either (1) think he did it , or (2) was a party to the crime by some manner by which he helped facilitate the violation of Georgia law. Law enforcement officers have already made this arrest, and have moved on to newer matters. The prosecuting attorneys are not necessarily going to change their position regarding prosecution unless there is a great amount of evidence to the contrary....

    The maximum penalty is 12 months in the county jail, and $1,000.00 fine. The minimum is any lesser period of time on probation. There are some variables that are fuzzy here. If the simple battery occurred against certain protected classes (the elderly, a family member who is living in the residence with you, school employees, pregnant persons, a law enforcement officer, etc.,) the penalty can be more severe. Depending on the nature of the battery, the prosecuting attorney could always...

    Contrary to popular belief, bonds are not automatically obtained in all jurisdictions. Some bonds can be set at the jail, but others can only be set by a Superior Court Judge. Once a FTA has been issued, it normally requires the latter. I strongly recommend hiring an attorney (if you cannot afford to hire one, make application to the public defender's office). In some circuits, the prosecutor will agree to reinstate bond. The bond might be set higher, or the bond may have new conditions...

    I feel this is not the time to be less than 100% honest. With your GPA of 3.8, one would certainly think you would be in great shape to transfer. However, if you don't honestly and openly disclose these matters on the application, and if the school finds out, you are giving the school an easy way to refuse the request to transfer. Even worse, you could get the transfer and then be thrown out for falsifying the contents of your application package. Personally, I would take the "Honest...

    You are wise to have involved an attorney. You should share this information right away with him/her. As you probably know, social media is a "new beast" that both prosecutors and defense attorneys can use to their advantage. Keep in mind that the mere fact that the Facebook postings are online does not necessarily mean that she posted the information. You should screenshot the information to insure you can "prove" it was posted. I cannot stress enough that you need to share this...
