The entire thing is on surveillance video & I have a witness. He was arrested and is now back at the building & I am not comfortable going back there when I'm discharged from physical therapy/rehab. I feel that I should receive some sort of compensation for something out of all this!... Read more »

It generally within a couple of weeks, but it is not #fast as the hearing schedule is all up to the courts. The best way to get a revocation moving is to hire a local lawyer who works in that circuit all the time and they should be able to facilitate directly with the Courts in an effort to move...Read more »
It's my assistant manager and I'm trying to get him promoted, but he has to have open availability. The case hasn't even made it to superior court yet and may not. His lawyer is court appointed and ignoring him(not returning phone calls or messages). Thank you in advance.
The above is correct and it stinks when the PD is ignoring the clients needs. Unfortunately often the PD's are dramatically overworked and cannot provide the services and attention that a private lawyer can, so it may be a good idea to call some LOCAL lawyers and inquire about hiring them....Read more »
She is currently incarcerated for elder abuse and several other charges, none of which have been waived. I can reveal more history as needed to receive an answer. I am writing this myself with no prompting from another person. I am totally independent, pay my own mortgage, bills, etcetera.
It means the person failed to appear at a court date, and an arrest warrant was issued. Additionally, it means that the court refused to dismiss the warrant. So the person needs to turn themself in, or eventually the person will be arrested.
It’s a good idea to obtain a lawyer to help...Read more »
My daughter was arrested 10 days ago at work in Norcross, GA. She is a young mother of one 6 year old child. I've never known her to be anything less than a loving, kind, sweet mother and law abiding citizen. I only know that she was picked up at her place of employment for mailing contraband... Read more »
When a person is arrested, they will remain in jail until they post a bond, or until the case is resolved by plea, dismissal or trial. If your daughter was not given a bond amount, it is probably a good idea to hire a criminal defense attorney to help get her a bond.
If this was a situation where you were to have no contact with the victim as a condition of bond and you contacted the victim, now your bond is violated or revoked. The victim cannot simply drop charges in most cases. Once you are arrested, it is the State vs you, not the victim.
If you have already been sentenced then you have a limited time to file a motion to withdraw your guilty plea. If you feel that your plea was not knowingly and voluntarily given or your attorney was ineffective then you may be able to file a habeas. You definitely should consult with an attorney...Read more »
A Georgia attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. You could be losing valuable time continuing to await a response. A criminal defense attorney needs to advise you. You could either reach out to attorneys or look into whether you qualify for a public defender. Good...Read more »
As a first offense, the maximum punishment for misdemeanor theft by shoplifting (valued at less than $500) may include up to 12 months confinement in jail, $1000 fine, and/or restitution. However, I recommend you speak with a criminal defense attorney (or your appointed attorney) to get the best...Read more »
Depends on the type of fleeing/eluding that is ultimately charged. Georgia has both misdemeanor and felony eluding offenses. The statute of limitations for misdemeanor eluding is 2 years and the statute of limitations for felony eluding is 4 years.
I explained to public defender but she was charged and given probation and fine. She is mentally disabled so she can’t pay. What can I do? I’m a single mom with a 15 year old daughter as well. I don’t have $3000 laying around.
