  • Lynn found guilty on all counts in murder retrial

    Sep 3, 2015 | via Barrow County News 

    The retrial for Barrow County man James Lynn, convicted in 2012 of killing his wife, ended Thursday afternoon after the jury found him guilty on all charges. Lynn was found guilty in the initial trial of killing wife Tonya Lynn and hiding her body in a well, but the Georgia Supreme Court ruled late last year that the first-degree murder conviction of James Morris Lynn, Jr. should be thrown out because he was denied the opportunity to have two men testify about extra-marital affairs he claims they had with his wife.

I was hit by a drunk driver. she got dui and 3 more tickets.
She was traveling so fast that upon impact her car went flying through the air and debris flying. Her car landed 2 houses away from impact. My car totaled. i went to the dr. the next day and hired an attorney. I went thru treatment but none of which really helped. I have severe back and neck spasms. some days i am in such neck pain that i cant move my head much less drive. with the attorney i was offered 14,000. Because of my pain which seems to be getting worse, my life has changed and i know i will need further medical. the drivers policy was 50,000. I feel especially because she was totally at fault and got dui + 3 tickets that i deserve more. i did not accept the offer and am thinking about a new attorney. or should i accept it?
You did not say when this happened and what treatment you had. You need to discuss this more with your attorneybsince...

The officer did give me a my license back he gave me a permit he told me they would be suspended that night
But I have the paper say I lost them on dec 2. It also states tht I had a lil more time to drive. So should I be good for dec thru the rest of my time.they never gave my Ls back Bc I refused the test(blood)

So how long does it take for a dui to clear off your record for getting a job
It depends on how the case was resolved. IF you plead guilty to the case it will not be removed off your record. If the...
Will my license be suspended in Georgia after Virginia DWI if I move back and get GA license before court date?
I received a DWI in Virginia Dec. 2014. I am in the military and had my court date rescheduled until Sep. 2015 due to upcoming deployment. I am from Georgia, but moved here for the military and eventually changed my DL to Virginia. I am getting out and moving back to GA around July 2015. My license is not currently suspended in VA and will not be until I go to court because it was a first offense. I still pay taxes in GA and still registered to vote in GA so If I go get a GA drivers license before my court date in September 2015, will it then be suspended in GA considering GA is not part of the DLC? I know it is in the NDR, but if I change my license before my court date (and likely conviction) will It still be suspended?
It is still possible, but likely to be suspended in both places.
How much are surcharges and court costs on a 2nd DUI?
I was convicted of a second DUI in barrow county. My fine was set at $1000, and added surcharges and court costs. I have read typical estimates at 15-25% of the original fine. My probation company says that I owe over $2000 after initial fines, surcharges, and court costs. They have not been willing to give me a full itemized breakdown of where the extra $1000 are coming from. What rights do I have, if they are overcharging me?
They are right. Court costs and surcharges on a DUI fine of $1,000 is going to bring the total up to approximately $2,000.
