  • Robbery punishment in Georgia

    Punishment for robbery with $350 worth stolen property?

    Noah’s Answer

    The punishment ranges from one year of probation to 20 years of prison. There are also life-long ramifications of having a robbery conviction on your record. There is no question you should consult and hire a lawyer.

  • How can I be denied Renewal of Georgia weapons carry liscense from juvenile record

    Helllo, I was recently denied my Georgia weapons carry license renewal based off of a criminal trespassing charge I received as a juvenile(we were throwing eggs). Stupid I know. Any help/ info would be helpful thanks.

    Noah’s Answer

    That does not make a lot of sense. You have the right to request a hearing regarding the denial of your application. I would suggest you hire a lawyer to help you with the situation.

  • A "friend" was asked to take a stipulated polygraph exam regarding a possible child molestation allegation

    A friend was asked to take a stipulated polygraph exam related to a child molestation claim. The friend was not named in forensic interview by victim, a different person completely was named by victim. A third party report is how this persons na...

    Noah’s Answer

    Hopefully your friend already has a lawyer. If so, he should be asking his lawyer for advice (although I would not advise a client to agree to a stipulated polygraph). If he doesn't have a lawyer, he needs one immediately.

  • My convictions were supposed to be expunged a year ago and still show up on my record from cobb county. They never were expunge!

    I got convicted of false feloni charges so they were dropped. The agreement was for me to pass the diversion program and I was able for expungment. Well, I've completed the program and they granted me with a second chance for a clean record so why...

    Noah’s Answer

    Expungement is now called restriction in Georgia. Chances are your arrest was restricted from your criminal history. You can check by going to your local police department and paying for a copy of your criminal history (GCIC). If the case was not restricted, contact your lawyer.
    However, even if the case was restricted from your criminal history it may appear on the clerk's on-line docket. There is a separate process for getting that restricted, which involves filing a petition and getting a judge to sign an order. You can ask your original lawyer if he/she will file it for you or obviously you can hire another lawyer to do it.

    Noah’s Answer

    Good thing you asked, since it is 100% illegal and could be a felony depending on exactly how much older you are than her. Stay far, far, away from her.

  • What is the statue of limitations for a misdemeanor of Public Drunkeness?

    What if your attorney does not file your case? Will it be dimissed if he doesn't file it by a certain amount of time? What the legal name for filing?

    Noah’s Answer

    The statute of limitations is two years. Unless your attorney is the prosecutor, which he is not, then he is not the one who needs to file within the statute of limitations.

  • Will I have to pay a fine I was issued a ticket on July 1,2016 for leaving the scene of an accident that occurred on May 7,2016.

    I had no knowledge of the accident and I have no damage to my vehicle l did do business at the store where the accident is said to have occurred can I be fined for an accident that I did not know about.

    Noah’s Answer

    If you pay a fine for hit and run (leaving the scene) your license will be suspended. I'd suggest you hire a lawyer to help get the case dismissed.

  • Can I attack a void judgment for the first time in a second state habeas corpus without it getting waived and dismissed?

    I found out five years into my prison sentence that my indictment fails to charge a crime.I've been found guilty by a jury and sentenced to 30 years for non criminal conduct.

    Noah’s Answer

    There is no way that any lawyer can answer a question like yours in this forum without knowing a lot more about your case. For example, I would first want to know what you were charged with and why you think the indictment fails to allege a crime. Next, I would want to know whether your trial attorney raised any issues challenging the indictment. I would also kneed to know when you were convicted, if you ever filed an appeal, what issues were raised, and when the appeal was denied. Finally, I would also need to know about the habeas you filed, who filed it, when it was filed and what issues you raised. All of this information is needed by any lawyer trying to answer your question.

  • Does a client deserve legal rights to be told by their attorney what they were charged for? And If vacated, and it was, then

    why is that charge and picture still on arrest record? Who's job to make sure that's taking off? If a family court judge charges someone contempt of court before lunch then turns around and vacates it after lunch. If a paid up ex lawyer refuses ...

    Noah’s Answer

    Yes, your lawyer should be able to tell you why you were held in contempt. Additionally, there should be a contempt order signed by the Judge. If you were taken into custody before lunch and released after lunch, it would be unusual that you would have an arrest record and booking photo. Where (which website) have you been able to access the arrest and photo? As to the transcripts, you just need to pay the court reporter and he/she will prepare a transcript for you.
