Reckless driving probation ended April 2015
i have posted this question before. I was on probation for reckless driving that ended April 2015, I still owed 1200 dollars. Tolling is illegal now in Ga. I got a speeding ticket in November 2014 which I was put on probation for as well before reckless driving probation ended. I have looked for a job for 6 months to no avail. In April 2015 my po said she went before judge before my probation ended and stated the judge added my outstanding reckless driving to my speeding ticket as a special condition. And I had to have it paid off by May 11th 2015. I have no money and paid with help from a friend 535 dollars in April 2015. My question is... Can they do that with my outstanding fine even if my probation ended April 2015
They can try and do anything. Is it legal - depends on the facts specific to your situation but based on what you...
Can someone tell me the best options for getting my Underage Consumption by Possesion lessoned or dropped alltogether?
I as well as some other friends were pulled over on New Years Eve. I wasn't driving and the driver as well as everyone else in the car tested negative for alcohol. The asked me if i had had anything to drink that afternoon. (Note they did not ask if I had drank alcohol, just if i had SOMETHING to drink) I replied with yes I had had three or four DRINKS (never admitting to it being an alcoholic beverage.) The officer proceeded to bring me a citation and asked me to sign it. I asked him what I was saying by signing the citation. At that point I was arrested and taken to jail. I was never tested for alcohol with a field sobriety test nor by blowing into a breathylizer. Also is asking me without reading me my rights self-incrimination?
you need to hire yourself a lawyer as soon as possible.....good luck P. Darrell Kimbrell
Can I fight this DUI charge or what can I do?
. I am 21, in GA. I was hanging with some new friends, because I had just moved to a different location, and didn't know my way around. I had about 2-3 sips or a beer, and maybe a few more sips of a mixed drink. I was driving my car. I had missed the turn, and needed to turn around. When I turned, a cop pulled me over and told me that it was an illegal U-turn. I was not aware since I was new to the area. The cop requested a field sobriety test. He then put me in hand cuffs, and said he was arresting me for DUI. There was no female present. I was taken to the police station, where he forced me to take breathalyzer, without my consent. It read- 0.051. Afterwards, the cop told me that I would receive a fee of $300. I was never "arrested" or charged. He told me I was getting a citation, and to appear for the court date. He stated that the court was for the illegal U-turn. He drove me to my friends house, and he let my friends drive my car to their house. I appeared for court and this is my first offense, other than a failure to yield in a car accident. I plead guilty, but I didn't know it was for the DUI. I have 280 days to pay $1200, 40 hrs CS, DUI school, and suspended license.

I got arrested for DUI one year ago. My lawyer tried pushing the court date until I was 21, but it ended up being scheduled a month before I turned 21.

How do I write an appeal to the court for a guilty DUI plea?
I'm trying to write a plea to the court of Hampton to appeal my guilty plea to a DUI less safe. I was unaware that I was being charged for the DUI until I was standing in front of the judge and the cop that pulled me over for an illegal U turn told me I was being charged for that and that the fine would only be 300$.. but in the moment of the judge asking me what I plead I was frozen and pled guilty to this DUI. I'm just trying to figure out what to not put in this letter for the judge to use against me.
This is not proper. You cannot simply write an "appeal" to the judge. Generally, all appeals are extremely difficult to...
If moving to another state how long before license suspension removed?
I have the opportunity to move from Georgia to California with an old friend. However, I am under a license suspension in my home state of GA and am required to maintain an ignition interlock device on my car for 12 months as well as attend clinical treatment for 3 (unnecessary, feel this is mainly extortion of my situation to get more money out of me.) These requirements are not court mandated, but rather imposed by the state DDS as conditions of license reinstatement. If I were to move to CA, how long would it be before these requirements became null and void and if I were to return to GA could then receive a license without having to fulfill these requirements? Also, would it be possible to get a license in CA as GA is not a member of the interstate compact?
You can consult a California attorney. But I do not believe CA will give you a driver's license until your GA issues...
