My nephew presentment fails to display any name of any possible witness that may have testified before the grand jury.
Nope. All is that is required is that the prosecutor furnish a copy of the indictment and a list of potential state's witnesses at the arraignment. While the better practice is to put the name of the testifying witnesses on the front of the indictment, it is not legally required.See question
I turned on to a 4 lane road with a middle turn lane inside the city of Atlanta but in an area with hardly any cars and where it was mostly trees. Not a lot of buildings and certainly no residential homes. I watched cars while waiting to turn on...
You're likely to lose in court. The speed within a municipality Georgia is 35 mph unless otherwise posted (or a residential street which is slower.) Since the officer did you a favor and reduced it to 14 over, just pay it off. It won't go on your driving record, won't get sent into the state, there will be no points on your license, and there will be no record of it unless someone physically goes to the court or police department and goes through tickets one at a time.See question

If you enter any plea, your license will be suspended. You need to hire an attorney, who may be able to find some better options for you.See question
I was arrested for driving on a suspended license in April. The court appointed me an attorney who has never made contact with me with the exception of an 8 minute call to simply chew me out for having lodged a complaint about this to the Public D...
Realistically, for a suspended license charge, the public defender doesn't need a whole lot of information or assistance from you. The three primary areas of defense for a suspended license charge are (1) your license was improperly suspended, (2) there is no proof (if required) that you were provided proper notice, or (3) you were not driving. Unless your defense is based on number (3), which the PD can determine from the incident report, your input is not essential to the defense. That being said, the attorney should be communicating with you, and if he's not, go hire someone who will.See question
Do police have to issue a warrant for an arrest within a certain amount of time? For example, if a person was setup by a c.i. but not arrested until a week later, what would be the reason/reasons that it took so long to make the arrest? Also, if t...
Police generally have 2 years from the date of the incident to begin prosecution on misdemeanors and 4 years from the date of the incident to begin prosecution on most felonies.
This situation is very common; the hope of the police is that the more time that elapses, the less likely you will able to identify their informant, thus letting them use the informant for a longer period of time.See question

Wow, the snowballing of poor decisions may lead to you going to jail on a speeding ticket. You need to hire a local attorney NOW. Whereas you would have just paid a fine in municipal court, you'll likely end up on probation in superior court, and depending on the judge, you're looking at 10-45 days in jail if you're convicted at a trial. You HAVE to be in court tomorrow (unless you hire an attorney AND they're able to get a reset), otherwise, a bench warrant will issue for your arrest. Bench warrants are rarely recalled in Newton county, meaning there is a good possibility that you could sit in jail for an extended period of time before you ever get to see a judge.
BOTTOM LINE: Hire a lawyer today, and put your shovel down. You've dug a hole so deep you may not be able to afford to hire somebody to hoist you out of it.See question
I'm on probation for possession of less than an ounce of marijuana in walton county and I recently got a ticket for not wearing a seatbelt and not transferring over my license to a ga license.
It would violate your probation (especially in Walton), but only if YOU tell the probation officer about it. Since you weren't arrested, unless you go to court on the tickets and your probation officer recognizes you OR they pull your driving history after you pay the tickets, they're not going to find out about it.See question
Yes, this is still illegal in Georgia.See question

Porterdale is in Newton County, which is part of the Alcovy Judicial Circuit which includes Walton County as well. The Alcovy Circuit has an attorney referral page courtesy of the Newton and Walton bar associations. Starting there might be a good idea: http://alcovycircuit.com/resources/173-attorney-referrals.htmlSee question
Got a speeding ticket going 98 in 70, no prior record. Live in Clayton nc
Also, be careful if she has a NC driver's license because if the ticket gets reported to them at those speeds a license suspension is possible. You should probably consult both a NC attorney and a GA attorney (or an attorney licensed in both states).See question
