Was arrested for a posession charge 10 years ago. I sadly got a dui the other day and I know walker county Georgia probation has issued a warrant for me. However, when I was booked for dui the officer who arrested me was in jail for drugs. Can my original possession charget be thrown out? Or what can I do? I'm not worried about the dui too much
If the case were still pending then you could probably benefit, but I don’t see this affecting a ten year old conviction.
You should probably start worrying about that DUI though.
You should be worried about the DUI, the officer's current arrest likely has no impact on a 10-year-old conviction, but if you are still on probation as you said, a warrant was issued, which could cause you to be in jail for longer than a DUI conviction would normally garner you.
