i am being accused of aggravated assault because someone said i shot at them when all i did was shot one time in the air and the person told them that he do not want any charges to be pressed against me
Two words: "reasonable apprehension". You do not have to cause bodily injury you have to give someone reasonable apprehension of imminent bodily harm. Had an injury occurred you would have been charged with aggravated battery. Sounds like if the facts are as you say you are probably only guilty of discharging a firearm and/or reckless conduct.See question
I am currently 17 years old, but next year I will be 18 and my girlfriend will be 17. We are only a year and a month apart in age.Would this be a problem in the future
Nope. Age of consent in Georgia is 16.See question
I know a couple where one of them is 17 and the other is 28. The 17 year olds parent knows they are together and doesnt seem to mind, however the 28 year old is my family and i dont want him to go to jail.
Is this in Georgia? The age of consent is 16. A 28 year old can date a 17 year old. Now if the 17 year old lives at home with a parent and a parent is not on board with the relationship the only charge that could come from it would be a interference with custody -- but even that is a long shot with a 17 year old at issue. On another note...why is a 28 year old even interested in a 17 year old. That should be your bigger concern.See question

This is not a criminal defense question. I would imagine stores are able to use whatever technology is available to curtail shoplifting. If you are shopping in a public place they have you on film anyway whether it's for a loss prevention purpose or not. If you are being harassed I would suggest speak to store management or don't shop there anymore.See question
I recently submitted a termination of probation after being on probation for a few months. I live in another state so my probation was transferred to the new state but was originate in Georgia. My probation officer in my current state wrote a lett...
The Judge will not grant the motion without a hearing because probation is opposing it. The opinion that I would think mattered more would be the the DA's Office and it doesn't sound like anyone attempted to get them on board. Generally if you receive a probated sentence longer than two years they will have you report for two years and if they want supervision beyond two years then probation has to go to court and ask the court to order continued supervision. This is all under the Georgia Dept of Community Supervision which runs all probation now.See question

Your rights are severely diminished by being on the registry and on parole. Your parole office has now made it a condition of your parole that you stay away. I'm sure the argument of the owner is that it's a family restaurant. Are you being discriminated against? Doubt it. But that's not a criminal defense question so you may want to post that to a civil rights lawyer.See question

So have you been on reporting probation this whole time? Was this a first offender plea?
Usually probation will do a warrant and criminal history check before closing out your case if you were on first offender or conditional discharge. You haven't provided enough info here for us to advise you.See question

No. Misdemeanor probation cannot be transferred as most often it is managed by private companies. You could ask them to let you report by phone or mail.See question

Are you under 17? If not then the case is handled in adult court and not in juvenile court. As for the drug test -- the answer to the question is specific to the jurisdiction that has the ticket. You should call an attorney where you live and get their opinion. Often they will give you a short consult for free. Also if you are a minor please tell your parents and let them advise you. This is a big deal and needs to be handled properly.See question
