Legal Answers
246 Questions Answered

Q. Is this theft?
A: If you have the vehicle and the bill of sale then register the car in your name and call a locksmith.
Q. I have a unlawful possession of a controlled substance charge my court date is coming up and I love in Stone Mountain Ga
A: If you are looking for a public defender you need to apply in the court where your charges are pending. If you are looking to hire a lawyer you should look for criminal defense lawyers in the same county where your charges are pending. I do not know where Hoover, GA is.
Q. Hi after being convicted of simple poss. of marijuana, can I get a CCW or do I have to file for a restoration of my rig
A: A misdemeanor drug conviction disqualifies you from obtaining a Carrying Concealed Weapon license pursuant to OCGA 16-11-129, unless 5 years have elapsed and there are no other disqualifying offenses. It would appear you are eligible to obtain the permit. If you utilized a conditional discharge plea or first offender treatment on the marijuana charge you would also be eligible immediately and not have to wait the 5 years.
Q. Theft by refund indictment- innocent ! Lawyer urging to take plea in morning . Felony probation & restitution. no trial
A: Another post without a question. If you are innocent than hire a lawyer and take the case to trial.
Q. Should I hire another lawyer if I know I’m innocent instead of scare tactics to take plea deal leaving me with felony
A: You should not enter a guilty plea to a charge unless you are in fact guilty of the charge. If you do not like the opinion of your current lawyer, by all means get a second opinion.
Q. If someone puts on facebook to shoot the next postal employee that comes to their door and touches the doorknob.
A: You didn't ask a question. The threat was not directed at a particular individual for the purpose of terrorizing which is a required element for terrorist threats. I am not sure why a postal employee would put their hand on the door knob to deliver mail.
Q. Can a parolee be arrested for missing calls at check in if they have no knowledge and the officer didnt write him up
A: I doubt that the parole violation is based solely upon that one incident. If that is all they have then demand a hearing and retain counsel.
Q. CAN JUDGE REDUCE SENTENCE & FINE ON A TRAFFICKING METH CHARGE FOR FIRST TIME OFFENSE OF ANY KIND WITH THE LAW?
A: The judge can reduce the confinement time if certain factors are present and the DA consents but such a reduction means you will not be eligible for parole.
Q. DOES IT MATTER IF THE INDICTMENT SAYS YOU ARE CHARGED WITH 16-13-31 TRAFFICKING COCAINE IF CHARGE WAS FOR METH
A: The indictment usually states what the lab tested. But that doesn't mean the state does not make mistakes. If the substance was meth and they charged cocaine don't say a word until the state rests its case. At that point they screwed themselves and you will be free.
