Atlanta, GA asked in Criminal Law for Georgia

Q: I was recently charged with simple battery and public drunk. This is a first time offense. Where do I go from here?


I need advice on a rather unfortunate situation that I got into recently. I had too much to drink prior to visiting six flags. Upon arrival, they asked that a ticket be presented. Though I have a season pass (so I could basically get in at anytime), I did not produce a ticket and a security officer was called to assist. I used profane language and was asked to leave. I gave the officer a shove and police were called. There were no injuries, this is a first time offense, and Im willing to take any classes or whatever is required to get this rectified.

A: Cobb is pretty easy and you should be fine. It will help you to get a lawyer to smooth the path. You can DIY this, but a lawyer will make it a lot easier and less scary. Lots of local lawyers will charge you between 1-5K for a case such as this. We do them all the time .
