Asked in Criminal Law, Elder Law and Health Care Law for Georgia

Q: My aunt has been charged with battery & exploitation with intent to harm an elderly. She says she's innocent

The family says there is a video but when asked by the Nursing aide supervisor to view it, the family says there is a problem with uploading the video & some of it isn't clear to view. The daughter of the alleged victim said she went to the police department to have the charges dropped but state has taken over the case. My aunt is being released on a $6000 bond. We just need to know how to proceed with legal representation for her

A: Contact a criminal defense attorney ASAP. It is probably best to hire one who practices law in or near the county where the charges occurred.
