  • Can i plead first offenders if this is my first felony

    almost a yr ago i got charged witj burglary theft by taking obstruction and another charge can i plead first offenders?

    Kevin’s Answer

    Most likely yes. You need to be aware that there are both pros an cons to pleading first offender. You need to make sure you understand both before making a decision. If you foresee yourself being the type of person that consistently gets in trouble or makes mistakes, first offender may not be for you. You need to take a hard look at yourself and come to terms that if you plead first offender, that you cannot commit any more crimes. The results of committing a new crime on first offender could be disastrous.

  • Will the warrant be dropped

    I was given probation for driving with a suspended license. I was placed on probation until I could pay the entire 900 fee. The judge said once the fee is paid I will be taken off probation. But I stay far from the county and missed a date with my...

    Kevin’s Answer

    That is ultimately up to the probation officer. Being far away from the county were you report to is not an excuse. Missing a date with your probation officer is a problem. Demonstrates to the officer that you are not serious about dealing with your responsibilities. The less responsible you are the more likely the probation officer will not recall the warrant. You are not giving him/her a real reason to drop the warrant.

  • Probable penalty for georgia marijuana arrest?

    I was recently arrested in marijuana for misdemeanor possession of marijuana (<1oz) and it is my first time offense for any sort of crime. I am wondering what my probable penalty would be and what advantages i would get from hiring an attorney vs...

    Kevin’s Answer

    Typically a solo private criminal attorney does not carry the caseload that a public defender may carry which would allow the private attorney to spend more quality time on your case. In regards to the penalty . . . there are both criminal consequences and driver license consequences. The misdemeanor violation is up to $1,000 fine or 12 months in jail or both. Typically you would not get this punishment as this is your first offense. You could plea no contest or conditional discharge which would help with the criminal consequences and also with the saving your driver's license from being suspended. If you would like to discuss further, you can reach me directly at 404-403-2665. Good luck.

    Kevin’s Answer

    You may be able to get the conditions of your probation modified. You would have to hire an attorney to make sure the Probation Officer and Prosecuting Attorney are on board. If they are both in agreement then the attorney can file a motion to modify terms of probation. It is not likely you will succeed. However, worst they judge can say is "motion denied."

  • Probation Officer scaring me?

    Currently on a misdemeanor probation, first offender, for a year. One of the rules & regulations that it requires is for me not to have any communication whatsoever with my ex-girlfriend, basically we're on a temporary restraining order and I have...

    Kevin’s Answer

    Best thing is to abide by the conditions of your probation, which sounds like you are doing. It is hard to say what he is doing. Could just be trying to scare you. In any event, you should not worry if you have not had any contact with your ex-girlfriend. If you feel threatened and you had an attorney representing you on your case, contact your attorney to see if he/she can look into any investigation that may or may not be going on. Good luck.

  • Motion for early release of probation

    Hi, I am currently on a two year out of five year probation sentence, and I have completed my community service, and paid my fines.However, I was told my PO that I would still have to serve out the rest of my three years. This had been a burdened ...

    Kevin’s Answer

    With a good attorney, a motion to terminate probation early can be filed with the court. Request a hearing to be heard on your issue. If you completed all the conditions of probation, you have a good argument. However, because you have so much time left on your probation to complete, it is not likely the court will terminate your probation early. This will also depend on the judge and the jurisdiction. I recently handled this same situation for another client and was successful in getting the motion granted to terminate probation early. I am happy to help.
