It was after midnight. Reclined seat and fell asleep. Which makes me wonder if music was really that loud. Someone must have called the police. When I woke up (or they woke me up), they started walking away from my car towards the police cars to l...
Hi. I have practiced criminal defense law in Georgia for the past 20 years. Generally, in order to find out if you received a ticket/citation, simply contact the local police department or sheriff's office in the community where the alleged offense occurred. This should be easy since you believe that you may have received a ticket while walking to your apartment. I would suggest going up to the police department and speaking with someone at the duty station. I find that it is difficult for non-lawyers/laypersons to gather this information over the telephone. If your decide to call the local police/sheriff's department, then you must be prepared to provide them with the date and time of the incident. If they can not find a citation in the system, then you probably were not issued a citation. You can also check the local court that deals with misdemeanor and/or county ordinance cases and ask the clerk of court to run your name is the system to determine if you have any pending cases for noise violation or disturbing the peace/disorderly conduct. You can rest comfortably that you were not charged with DUI because you would have been arrested that night.See question
What does a traffic court case SAFETY BELT VIOLATION with court hearing outcome CONVERSION mean
I practice law in Georgia and I have handled criminal cases for 20 years. It is difficult to know what the word "Conversion" means based on your question. However, every day, prosecutors will reduce charges to a lesser offense in exchange for an accused person's waiver of the constitutional right to a trial (either bench trial or jury trial). Approximately 95 percent of all criminal cases resolved via plea bargain. So, it could be that the Safety Belt Violation was reduced (also known as Converted/Conversion) to a lesser charge. To find out the exact sequence of events, you can contact the Clerk of Court in the City/County/Municipality where the plea took place and simply ask them what Conversion means in that particular case.See question
