About two years ago a cop arrested me for driving with out a license I was sentenced to one year probation and one year suspended license which I have never had a license. But I lost my job and got evicted so the only place I could move to was out...
the facts you gave are a little confusing. you said this happened 2 years ago and was given 1 year of probabtion. if that's the case you're no longer on probabtion. I suggest you contact the court clerk where this case was filed and look at what the court record says about when your probation should have ended. Continue to contact the probation office. ask for a supervisor if need be.
driving without a license is a misdemeanor. if, hypothetically, your move causes a warrant to be issued, local police can but aren't likely to come looking for u. You do run the risk of the warrant being discovered if your stopped. I strongly doubt GA would pay the cost of coming to get u on a misdemeanor, but it could happen.
You need to get your license. I don't know if a warrant will prevent it but I do know that any revocations or holds on your driving record will. Even though you don't have a locense, you still have a driving record. If you are here in OK, call the Department of Public Safety driver improvement division and fund out what you will need to do.
you listed this under DUI law but you don't mention any DUi. do I'm re-categorizing this under criminal defense to get more answers.
I'd also suggest you post your question about your probation for the GA lawyerd.

I'm changing the practice area to "slip and fall" so you can possibly get an answer from those guys. You should contact a personal injury attorney and get a consultation as soon as possible.See question
I was on a 5 year deffered judgement and had completed every thing for my 2 years of supervision and had only 1 year left to go on unsupervised. i had a false charge pressed against me and went to jail over it and in court it got dismissed then th...
At any time while you are on the deferred sentence, the State can file an "application to accelerate" and allege that you have violated your probation. You are entitled to have a hearing on that application at which the State would be required to prove by a preponderance of the evidence that you have violated the probation. In this case, the State would have to show by a preponderance of the evidence (which is a very low burden) that you committed the new crime. The violation of probation on the old case is separate from the case for new charges for the alleged new crime, even though are all about the same new charge. Unfortunately, under Oklahoma law, the dismissal of the "new charge" does not, in and of itself, prevent the acceleration of your deferred sentence. This is where the hearing on the acceleration is important. If your attorney was successful in getting the new charge dismissed based on lack of evidence, then there's a good chance he can do that in the application to accelerate. You must discuss this with him. Hope this at least clarifies how the acceleration can take place.See question
So this past Saturday we gathered with some friends for a Halloween party. My wife had a few shots and got a little drunk, but it was OK because it was my turn to drive anyway. This dude realized that my wife was drunk and sat next to her and sta...
She will need to make the report. You can go with her to support her and make a statement as a witness.
If she is unsure about reporting it, don't pressure her bc it could backfire. If she's unsure, encourage her to reach out to the ladies at the YWCA. They offer free counseling services and offer her an objective perspective.
If she is sure about reporting it, it's important that you let her lead the charge and own it. and you just follow and support.
So me and my girlfriend, 16 and 18, have been dating for about a year now. We started dating with her parents permission a few months before I turned 18. Recently we found out that she was pregnant. We told her parents and they told me to never ta...
if this announcement to the parents is only a few days old, you might consider letting a little more time pass to see if they might calm down and be open to discuss. They may very well feel betrayed by you bc they consented to your dating their daughter but not for being irresponsible with her. They will defend their daughter against any perceived bad influence even if she is also partly at fault.
If you are willing to and capable of supporting mom and baby, then ask for a meeting and bring them your plan. My guess is that at 18, you have no idea what it will cost for her in medical bills alone. She is currently on parents insurance. Once you marry her, she'll switch to yours if you have any, and they might not cover it.
Basically, she is a minor and unless she is willing to turn her back on mom and dad for good and get the court involved, you have no say and no rights at this point.
Everyone's emotions are high right now. let them cool. Then approach the parents like an adult if you truly want any future relationship.
I'm trying to find out what this means my brother was charged with this assualt and battery with a dangerous weapon and they went from a 20 year offer to a six we were kinda hoping that this meant the guy didn't want to testify because it is a lie...
His attorney needs to make a direct request of the ADA as to the availability of the alleged victim. ADA is duty bound to notify defense if he has a witness problem. If ADA doesn't and defense confirms that there is actually a witness problem, then the ADA gets reported to the Bar association and to his boss and to the judge. If ADA admits witness problem, then attorney should ask how they plan to proceed without him. Not having a witness doesn't necessarily mean the case can't go to trial, but could mean that it will tougher to prove. A significant drop from 20 to 6 is a signal that something has changed the ADA's mind.
Your brother is at least entitled to know why and know why his attorney is recommending the 6.
My wife is in drug court for a dwi, but she failed to take a drug test because she couldn't leave work for it. She was arrested, and supposed to be released last Thursday, but on Thursday I was informed that she has a hold from another state.
They will hold them until the hold is released or the other jurisdiction comes and gets her. I would suggest you find out where the hold is from (you can ask the county jail) and contact a lawyer there. You may need to hire a lawyer to help you possibly set a bond for her or speed up the transfer so she can get it resolved.See question
I was driving on a state highway in Perry, OK when an officer thought (he even said I was not radar checked) so he paid more attention to my vehicle. He then pulled me over for an inoperable third light, the when he ran my tag he discovered I did ...
Your assuming the dash cam will show the light was operable. Don't assume. Get the dash cam video because that will be the only way to support your argument. If the light is visible from the dash cam, you will need to write and file a motion to suppress all evidence obtained as a result of the stop. When you get to court, be prepared to show the video. It will be up to you to bring the proper equipment. Technically, if you prove the stop to be invalid, it should result in the suppression of any other evidence, which includes his learning that you were without insurance at the time.
If the video is not clear about your third light, then it's your word against his. And if it was too dim, then the stop is proper.
Either way, I, too, would suggest that you get insurance if you haven't already and go prepared to show it along with your proof that the light has since been fixed so that if you lose your motion, you might be able to have a reasonable outcome. If you take a conviction for driving without insurance, your license will be suspended.See question
He hasn't bonded out yet, he is waiting for his preliminary hearing which is scheduled for the 1st of Nov. He has been in jail for 2 weeks already. If he is released that day will the other county still pick him up?
If you can find some money to hire at least one private attorney, hire one for the other county. You might be able to find someone who can represent him both. One attorney for both cases is best. But at least hire one for the other county now so he/she can get started working on it and paving the way for when he does get there. I've done this for in custody clients before so that when they arrive they only had to appear once because the deal was already worked out. Appointed attorneys can only work the county for which they have a contract with and on the cases they are appointed on. So don't expect them to reach out to the next county. And the only time he can get one appointed in the next county is after he's transferred.See question
I'm on probation for a dwi child I danger ment out of Texas I was half way finished with my probation I went to Tennessee and was back by my reporting date for probation but he still said I violated my probation I don't know what to do and no one ...
If I understand the question: You are on probation out of TX for a "DWI child endangerment" charge, and you have picked up a new charge of "DUI-drug Child Endangerment" in OK because you were taking Xanax. And you also left TX and went to TN (but you don't say if that was permitted or not). And your biggest concern is whether or not you will be arrested and taken to Texas IF you can get the new charges in OK dropped by the mere fact that your bottle isn't labeled with "do not operate."
No idea what TX will or won't do. But I do know from other clients who have been on probation in TX and picked up new charges in OK that they take their probation violations very seriously. You need to hire an attorney in TX and find out what your options are.
As for OK, they take the Child-Endangerment charge very seriously. Unfortunately, in Oklahoma, the fact that you were prescribed the Xanax and taking it as prescribed is no defense. It will take a lot more to convince them that the charge shouldn't stand as is. You need to hire good competent DUI counsel to help you understand and take on the charge.See question
