Gwinnett county. Wrongful DUI
I took them to jury trial,I was found not guilty. September 2014. But the incident happened in April 2012. What can I file on them and is it within two years from disposition at trial? Thank you.
I don't totally understand your question. You were acquitted at trial in September 2014, but got the DUI in April, 2012....

If a Georgia resident is convicted of a DWI in North Carolina will it affect their driving privileges in Georgia?
This person has a valid Georgia license. I have read that Georgia does not have a interstate compact.
It will if Georgia DMV is made aware of the DUI by NC. The states do not always play nice together and they do. It...
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)....
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...
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.
Hopefully a licensed GA attorney will respond to your question because you will need to speak to someone who is...
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...
