DUI in GA. What is the possibility I get the case dismissed without a lawyer? What is the worse-case scenario?
I have a question, back in 2012 I received a DUI (.086) in GA no accident. At that time, I got arrested and served 30 days in jail for a previously unpaid ticket (expired tag with a FTA). Subsequently, I lost my job. After serving the 30 days, I got out, missed court, and moved to another state. Fast forward till today, since then I have paid off all the tickets, got my license reinstated, completed DUI school, got the new FTA cleared (for missing court after released from jail), and now have new court date set in Aug 2016 which I will attend. I did discover that the officer that pulled me over initially no longer works for the county.
It's possible that it will be dismissed because the officer no longer works for the county if the State can't get him...
Will my boyfriend be arrested if he goes to get his drivers license? What should i do?
He was convicted of sexual assault on a person in custody in 2005. He was placed on probation. According to the background check sentencing shows 10 years and he never registered as an offender. We just had a child together and need his id so we can change the baby's last name, but we are afraid he will be arrested. I just found out he is an absconder thru the internet. He said he was convicted under the first offender act. What should i do? My kids and i depend on him for our survival because i dont work.

Does DeKalb County GA participate in the 2 for 1 credit?
I was convicted for a 2nd DUI in DeKalb County, GA. The sentence I received was 5 days in jail with credit for 8 hours time served. Once I report to jail will I be eligible for the 2 for 1 credit or will it be more probable for me to have to do the entire 4 days and 16 hours?
Your question entirely depends on if the jail gives you 2 for 1 (which would be an odd scheme for Dekalb county)....
What is the process and actions that I must pursue to obtain this temporary restricted license?
I am 66 with a clean driving record for 50 years. I was arrested in Tennessee in February and charged with DUI. I pleaded guilty and paid my fines, spent 48 hours in jail. My license has been suspended for 1 year. I need to obtain a restricted GA drivers license for work related purposes. I have a signed court document indicating that this was my first DUI conviction.

Would it be best to retain my previous DUI lawyer or hire a new layer for the violation of probation situation?
I was arrested recently arrested for driving on a suspended license. I am currently on probation for DUI while this happened. My mom was in the car with me when I was arrested for driving with a suspended license. I was driving her car because she twisted her ankle walking out of Chipotle. I was pulled over it was for having a headlight out and no tail lights which I didn't realize because it is not the vehicle I usually drive. The officer ran my license and found it was suspended. I did not inform the officer of my mother's injury because was scared as to what was going on and my mother wasn't able to articulate what was happening because she too was shocked with how the situation was unfolding. I know this is a new arrest so it counts as a violation of my probation for the DUI. I had completed 2/3 of the terms set for my DUI probation including community service and drug/alcohol evaluation. I will inform my probation officer prior to my next meeting. What are my options as far as not having to face jail time for the probation violation? My life is a mess. My probation was in Gwinnett co and my driving without a suspended license was in Forsyth. What are my likely options?
You may or may not have options, we just don't know without more information. Whatever options you may have will...
