    The Georgia General Assembly recently passed a bill that tentatively "overhauls" the criminal justice system. However, there is nothing in the legislation that would release prisoners early. HTH.

    If you entered a plea under OCGA 42-8-60, a/k/a First Offender Probation, there is nothing in that code section that requires that the record be "sealed." Your criminal history will reflect a "Cycle" that reflects first, the arrest, then the adjudication. A First Offender adjudication is NOT expunged nor "sealed." The adjudication reflects that the disposition of the case is adjudicated NOT GUILTY First Offender Probation Successfully Completed. As to a suit against the City of Atlanta,...

    Too many questions are left unanswered! Did you approach the prosecutor to sign off on the expungement? Expundgement is NOT a right; the prosecuting agency must agree to allow the expungement. Why was your petition denied? Who denied the petition? I strongly recommend you seek the advise of an attorney who has experience with expungement petitions. Good luck.

    Full disclosure to the recruiter is essential. Depending on the jurisdiction, probation is likely to be part of the prosecutor's recommendation. The U.S. Air Force, or any other branch of the United States Military will admit a recruit who is on criminal probation. Those charged with Violation of Georgia's Controlled Substances Act, Possessing Marijuana < 1 oz. usually have motions issues that should be addressed by an experienced attorney. Since your son has a lot riding on the disposition...

  7. What will happen to me in court i was charge with no license? But this is my third offense and i dont have social security #

    If this is your third offense in five years, the law requires a minimum fine of $1,500.00. THIS IS THE STATUTORY MINIMUM and the prosecutor may require other conditions of any negotiated plea agreement. "I was raised in the U.S" leaves many questions unanswered. If you are NOT a naturalized citizen or a legal resident of the US, our friends at Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE) may want to have a word with you; therefore, there may be an ICE warrant for your arrest. I strongly...

    The entity to which you wrote the bad check must first notify you and give you the opportunity to make the entity whole by paying the amount of the bad check and any applicable fees. To prevent a warrant for "Deposit Account Fraud," you may want to be proactive and approach the entity to which you wrote the bad check and offer to make them whole; an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

    If or when the defendant goes into custody in either county, please tell him to obtain a "Proof of Incarceration" from the Sheriff. If violated and a hold is placed on him by the other county in which he has probation, a Proof of Incarceration will likely get him credit for the time served in another county. It appears the only option "boyfriend" has at this time is to mitigate the damage of each violation. If financially feasible, retain an attorney in either jurisdiction. Best of luck in...
