Got charged with driving on a suspended license while on a scooter and went for a bench trial hoping I'd have attorney by now. Trial is tomorrow and if there is no way of prolonging this, will they treat it like an arraignment for a first time su...
Yes. You might consider asking the judge to accept a plea of nolo contendere if you are eligible. It will avoid the further suspension of your license.See question

The Georgia Dept. of Driver Services will issue you a permit only upon submission of a valid drivers license from another state or a clearance letter from the last state where you had a valid license.See question

My advice is for you to contact AVVO and request that your post be taken down immediately as you have offered to perpetrate a fraud on the courts. Despite your good intentions, your post and your plan will cause more problems that you are trying to solve.See question
Is it possible to get the original DUI Arrest expunged in GA when the prosecutor and I agreed to a Reckless Driving plea arrangement? I was arrested and charged for DUI. However, I plead guilty to a lesser charge of Reckless Driving. Thank ...
Georgia law excludes expungement/record restriction where a Defendant pled guilty to a charge that arose from the same transaction/occurrence. Your plea to Reckless Driving, although a very good outcome in most circumstances, will bar you from having the arrest expunged.See question
I was arrested for DUI in Florida, I refused a breathalyzer. I moved to Georgia during the process of the case. I was found not guilty for the DUI. But the license suspension was upheld due to the refusal. Can I get a drivers license in Georgia if...
In Georgia, when you are suspended for refusing a breath test, the suspension is lifted if you are found not guilty of the DUI. You should consult with a Florida lawyer (perhaps the one that assisted you in being acquitted) to determine if Florida law has a similar provision. If so, you can either get reinstated in Florida and then turn that in when applying for a Georgia license, or you can simply get a clearance letter from Florida and apply in Georgia. If not, I'm afraid that Georgia will not issue you a license until you are reinstated in Florida.See question
OCGA 40-6-390, Reckless Driving, is a general misdemeanor in Georgia that carries no mandatory minimum jail time. It is punishable by up to 12 months maximum in jail, but there is no mandatory minimum. A judge would have the authority to impose jail time, depending on the severity of the Reckless Driving, the driving history, etc., but it is not required.See question
my nephew was stoped and charged with dui the dianostic on the test shows that he passesd.
The diagnostic actually shows that the machine passed its own diagnostic test. to determine what your nephew's reported alcohol level, look next to where it says "subject sample" - that will give you the result of what he blew.See question
I was convicted of a DUI in March earlier this year. I will be moving to GA within two months. Will I be able to obtain any type if drivers license in GA?
Unfortunately, Georgia will not issue any type of permit. There is no way to obtain any type of Georgia license without obtaining a clearance letter from Virginia. Visit dds.ga.gov online and you will see what is required to obtain a Georgia license when you have an out-of-state license.See question
I been arrest for Public intoxicated ! What should a do next ? I walked out of bar, i seat at curb to tight my shoes, the cop come out the blue and arrest me for public intoxicated. I did not disturb anyone or was Acting Drunk. He arrest me and...
Based upon your description, if that is all that took place, the cop was wrong to arrest you. Public Drunkeness under Georgia law requires more than intoxication - it requires a public disturbance such as fighting, profanity, or appearing in a state of undress. Beware, however, that you may be cited under a local city ordinance, which may not require a public disturbance. Your best bet is to hire an attorney who practices in the jurisdiction where your case is pending, and who practices in this are of law. It is not helpful for lawyers from other states or other areas of practice to answer your question if they are not licensed to practice here.See question
I was a resident of NC when charged with DWI (class 5, first offense). I will plead guilty. I have moved to Georgia since the arrest and need to apply for a license. I have already served the mandatory 30 day revocation, per NC law. I have don...
Your best strategy is to ask (or your lawyer should ask) the clerk of court to send in the conviction to the Georgia Dept. of Driver Services (GA DDS) under your Georgia license number, rather than your North Carolina license. If you have completed all of the conditions to reinstatement in NC, get a clearance letter from NC and take it to the GA DDS and get the GA license. When you go to court, you will have to turn in your GA license and apply for a GA limited driving permit, complete the GA Risk Reduction program, and pay the reinstatement fee for Georgia. After 120 days on the limited permit, you can apply for, and get your full GA permit back.See question
