Ask for a public defender. If you are unemployed you will qualify. If you work, you won't. You need an attorney to try to help sort this out. You don't want to unnecessarily take a conviction where you might have qualified for diversion or if your case is crap altogether and should be dismissed.See question
If I'm probation, does my spouse not have rights to say no to a search by a probation officer with no probable cause? Do they loose their right to the 4th amendment too?
If they live with you they do. Arguably you could have a room in your home that only your spouse has the key to and there's a sign on it that says SPOUSE'S ROOM ONLY. Then he/she may have an argument that if searched without consent then their rights were violated. Generally speaking, it's a total drag to live with a probationer and this is why. No privacy.See question

You do not have another first offender left if that's what you're asking. The only first offender you may have left is 16-13-2 conditional discharge if you can somehow convince the court this is drug related. You need an attorney sooner rather than later.See question

Did you enter a guilty plea under conditional discharge or a first offender act? You are going to have to consult with an attorney to review your options. Thanks to changes in expungement laws over the past several years you may have a way to fix this.See question

If you are convicted of new charges you will be revoked. In the interim, a warrant can issue and a revocation hearing can be held and you can be revoked even before the new case is resolved. You need an attorney ASAP. Attorneys can often intervene on your behalf and ask probation and the court to hold off on a revocation hearing pending the outcome of your new case. Some of it depends on what ocunty has these cases. Also, Miranda is not an issue here. Everyone always thinks it is and it almost never is.See question

Have they already been arrested? Is it in City of Atlanta? If so they usually go to court the next day. If they haven't been arrested yet an attorney can help get them on an FTA calendar or they can go appear first thing in the morning and pay the FTA fee and get on a calendar. Info is on City of Atlanta's website. Every jurisdiction has different procedures for handling FTA's. But usually they are in court within a day or two once they are in custody.See question

Sounds like you are already represented by an attorney. We are not supposed to counsel or advise other attorneys' clients. As my colleague said, you will need a civil rights attorney. Search again on Avvo and tag the question for that topic alone.See question

That is a decision made by the prosecuting agency and entered on the warrant when it issues. Some jurisdictions will extradite for everything. Some will only extradite from certain regions of the country on low-level felonies. My guess is that you will be held and extradited if arrested outside the jurisdiction.See question
Been after me for awhile. I'm safe and would have sex with him than some take advantage.
The age of consent in Georgia is 16. If the 17 year old lives at home with parents and is supported by parents you can be charged with interference with custody. If you possess naked pictures of anyone under the age of 18 you are in very serious trouble for sexual exploitation of a minor. You're playing with fire here.See question

In Georgia the traffic code is part of the criminal code. Max penalty is 12 months in jail or on probation and a $1000 fine. A traffic court attorney could be helpful to you on this because CDL holders are in more points jeopardy for a ticket like this. It's a pretty serious traffic violation because you were in an 18 wheeler and hold a CDL.See question
