Holly G Chapman's answer In Georgia, to prove driving while license suspended (O.C.G.A. 40-5-121) at trial, the prosecutor do have to show that the accused had actual OR legal notice of the suspension. Although you may not have actually known that your license was suspended, that doesn't mean you didn't have legal notice. You should contact a criminal defense attorney so that they can help you sort through the specific facts that apply in your case to see you if you may have a viable defense.
Robbie Levin's answer It is not up to the victim to decide whether to continue prosecuting you. Aggravated Assault is a very serious charge, and the district attorney is not likely to just dismiss the charge unless there is compelling evidence that you did not commit the offense. You should hire an attorney ASAP.

Police can execute the search warrant at the residence without announcing their presence, when there is a “no-knock” provision.
