That sounds like a tragic situation all the way around. If your son wants to appeal this conviction or seek a better sentence, then please start that process quickly. There are time limitations. These include 30 days from the date of conviction to file a Motion for New Trial or an Appeal to the Court of Appeals or Supreme Court. Additionally, the sentencing Judge can modify the sentence within the first 12 months. And, there is a four year limitation on filing a Habeas Corpus action. I suggest you start contacting attorneys today to find the right one to handle this matter.See question

That is a tough situation. There might not be anything that an attorney can do at this point. The catch is though that the only way to find out if an attorney can do something now is to have an attorney review the full file and case. Most attorneys will charge you for their time to do so, and that is appropriate, But, Georgia has a four year limitation on Habeas Corpus actions. If there is newly discovered evidence or if it can be shown that the DA hid evidence, there might be something that can be done.
If you want to try to something, you could seek a consultation with an attorney who handles post-conviction relief. There are some really good and honest ones in the metro-Atlanta area. They will be able to tell you if they think there is something that can be done.
My husband my husband Tony was arrested for voliation felony probation in Paulding county ,the probation officer took him in to county ,which he was released to Polk county , where he picked up a different charge called voliation probation theft ...
If the violation is considered to be of a general condition of probation, the maximum time is two years in custody. For a violation of a special condition of probation, the Judge can order that the full balance of the time remaining on probation can be served in custody. And, if the defendant was sentenced under the First Offender Act, the Judge can actually give up to the full amount to which the Defendant could have been sentenced originally for the charged crimes, minus time already served.
But, you asked about the minimum sentence: The Judge has the power to not give any more time in jail.

Many courts in Georgia now offer pre-trial diversion programs for 1st misdemeanor charges. You should speak with a criminal defense attorney who practices often in the court to find out more about your options.See question
Was sentenced without an arraignment.
Quite often the attorney waives the arraignment on behalf of the defendant. This is supposed to be done with the permission of the defendant and some courts require that the defendant sign a waiver form. You probably need to speak with an attorney who specializes in post-conviction relief about your case. There are time limits that apply, so I would not wait around. Generally speaking, for state habeas corpus actions in Georgia, there is a four limit for felony charges and a one year limit for misdemeanor charges. Federal habeas actions have different rules.See question
I have been convicted of 28 counts of first degree forgery, 1 count of possession of cocaine, 15 years ago. I am now facing a 1st degree burglary charge. I have been of probation for three years. I am not guilty of this new charge.
You need to meet in private with a lawyer. You are facing all sorts of bad stuff, including a possible probation revocation that could put you in prison, just as the new charges could. Georgia's three strikes law requires in certain circumstances that a judge give the maximum sentence. However, it does not necessarily mean that the sentence could not be served on probation.
With your record, you need to find and hire a lwayer

No. If the ticket was in another state, Georgia will not issue a super speeder fine. However, if by some weird chance you do get a super speeder notice from Georgia, do not ignore it. Pay it or contest it.See question
