Although police usually don't want to get involved in this kind of wrongdoing, in Georgia you are still permitted to go to a county magistrate and apply for a criminal warrant. If the magistrate believes this could be criminal matter and doesn't otherwise direct you back to the police, a pre-arrest hearing can be scheduled. At the hearing, both sides briefly present their arguments and if the applicant (you) prevail, the judge would issue an arrest warrant, setting the criminal process in motion. This is not the preferred way to handle this but may be all you have. Further, while there you can pursue your claim against this person in a small claims court which is also the jurisdiction of that same magistrate.See question

Pardons and Paroles can deviate from the grid based upon individual factors so you cannot count on the grid to give you a definitive answer. You should consult with your fiance's lawyer regarding the grid and additional factors that may impact your fiance's release date.See question
What is the law regarding being officially notified of a criminal complicance hearing for probation?
The two legally recognized ways are by mail to the address you have furnished, or by notice in an open courtroom. However, if a probation orally told you to be in court, you had better go or suffer the consequences of missing court, even if you did not get official notice.See question

Some county courts put a lot of pressure on parents to pay for adult children with pending crimes who cannot otherwise pay for representation. Although you are feeling that pressure now, eventually, when this comes to the attention of the judge (as opposed to the administrators of the public defender program) ,the court will likely reconsider and grant him an appointed lawyer. I respectfully add that when you are appointed a lawyer, you get whoever the county says you will get and quality varies wildly. Given the gravity of the situation, you may want to reconsider your decision to not get involved this matter.See question
What are my options? I live here in Georgia. I have a 2 page Founders agreement we all signed. I have documentation on the investment made. They are collecting monies this month from a client we signed in May.
You need to hire an attorney to file an application for a restraining order in the appropriate superior court in order to get them to immediately halt this conduct. This could be a criminal case but for immediate relief you need to pursue the restraining order route. A lawyer can further advise if this rises to the level of a criminal case.See question
BAC: .136 This is my first DUI offense and it is also my first offense ever I am 24.
I've been practicing law for over 30 years and if I got a DUI case I wouldn't represent myself because that would be a suicidal thing to do. No lawyer in their right mind would tell you on an internet site of in person how to represent yourself in a DUI case. I suggest that you do whatever you can to get yourself a lawyer.See question
"i recently got in trouble for the first time ever in my life and my mother told me to plead no contest and i was not guilty i was charged for criminal trespass but i was never caught on there property nor was i arrested on there property.
No contest is viewed by most as a guilty plea. You need to consult with a lawyer. You really don't want this to affect your reputation or ability to go to school or get a good job.See question
