My son is in jail for probation violation (probation terms altered) for finger printable charges.
This means that he will go through the book-in process at the jail or prison. The book-in process includes, photographing your son, taking his finger prints and noting his vitals. All of this information will be uploaded to the GBI and FBI to be included in his criminal history record.See question
Ok. So a family member was convicted about 5 years ago for the hospitalization of two small kids. The problem is that neither the court or lawyer took the insanity defense into consideration. This family member is a diagnosed schizophrenic. He was...
Unfortunately, you are too late to ask this question. In Georgia, the statute of limitation on a habeas proceeding is 4 years from the date of conviction on a felony. If your family member had been properly represented by his attorney, the attorney should have filed a Motion for Psychiatric Evaluation seeking to determine if a the time of the crime and during the course of the case, your family member was mentally competent. If you had asked this question prior to the 4 year mark, an attorney could have filed a habeas petition alleging ineffective assistance of counsel and possibly had the case re-opened. Sadly, the time has passed.See question
So my question is about probation violations....i got arrested for battery in a domestic violence case because i was living with my boyfriend at the time. a few months later he got arrested for the same thing because we just couldnt seem to stop f...
You have an interesting situation. I suggest you contact and retain a local attorney to help you. An attorney can file a motion to modify your conditions of probation and negotiate with the prosecutor to work out a consent order instead of risking going before the judge. Based upon the information you have provided, it does not appear that your probation officer is aware of this battery report. If he/she finds out about it, they can and usually will take a revocation warrant out against you. Again, it is important that you meet with an attorney to discuss your case and retain them to represent you.See question
I was pulled over & asked if I had been drinking. I said I had a beer , asked if I took any medication, also said yes. The officer then asked me to drive my car to a nearby parking lot with people & cars in it.
It is not illegal; but, it definitely helps your case especially if you refused field sobriety tests and the state administered test. Hopefully you have already hired an attorney! A knowledgeable, well versed DUI attorney can help your case!See question
i have 3 dui's since jan.08 my last i was charge with dui,failure to mantain lane, crimminal trespassing , leaving the scene of accident ,their was no one involved .
The other responses are aboslutely correct as to your exposure for punishment. But why put the horse before the cart? FIrst, you need an experienced attorney to evaluate each of the alleged DUI charges separately to determine if the prosecutor can prove his case beyond ALL reasonable doubt. They would have to not only be able to prove that you were DUI, but also that the officers invovled had probable cause to question you for a DUI and to determine if the officer properly conduct a DUI investigation. DUI cases are deemed to be one of the most technical cases in Georgia. That is why it is absolutely necessary to have an attorney, especially, one who is well versed in DUI laws and practices DUI defense.See question
What if its my first time getting arrested and i was said to be involved in a burglary, but i was not seen at the scene, and i was stopped on my bike and asked where was I coming from and why am I sweating. What rights do I have for this?
You were sweating cause you were riding a bike, especially if this happened within the past couple of months! Burglary is a rather serious charge. The punishment for burglary is 1 to 20 years in prison and up to $100,000 fine. Whether it is your first offense or not, the more important concern is whether the prosecutor can prove the case against you. You need an experienced attorney to thoroughly evaluate your case and help protect your rights.See question
My step-daughter gave birth and both Mother and baby tested positive for Crystal Methamphitamines. The baby was taken under CPS care and given to my husband and I as temporary custody. Can the Mother be charged for abuse? What can happen to the...
Typically in these types of cases, the State will initiate what is referred to as a Deprivation Proceeding in which they will seek to have the child removed temporarily from the parent's care. The Mother will be given an opportunity to "straighten out" her life by following a parenting plan that will be set by the Department of Family and Children Services under the supervision of the local Juvenile Court. If the Mother successfully comletes all the requirements of the parenting plan, then in most cases, the child is returned to her. If on the other hand the Mother does not successfully complete the plan, then the State will seek to terminate her parental rights.See question
