REAL CLIENT QUESTION:

Marijuana misdemeanors back to back! Earlier this year my 18 y/o high school son got caught with marijuana in his locker. He received a ticket and before he went to court he was stopped by the police in the a car with a couple friends and charged again with < 1 oz of marijuana. He just got off of work and his friends were using while he was finishing up. He is starting college and I’m concerned as to whether he will have to serve jail time due to the back-to-back charges.

ATTORNEY ANSWER:

 If convicted of the charges, he may face jail time and/or fines. The maximum punishment for misdemeanors like this is a $1000 fine and/or 1 year in jail. Hire a lawyer. He now has two open cases. Simmons Law is an Atlanta based law firm.  We have serviced clients in similar situations as this, achieving great results for our clients.

Anything is possible. However, you are facing a serious crime so it is best for you to hire an attorney immediately and refrain from making incriminating statements. Even with getting probation, this type of charge can have other unfavorable consequences that you will probably face.

How can I get a sentence modification in Georgia? I need help for my homegirl!!

QUESTION:

My homegirl was sentenced to do 6 months in rehab but she has to sit in jail till she goes to rehab?? What happened?  Apparently the rehab the judge wanted her to go through was different and she was in another rehab and doesn’t have her on the list.  She been in jail 8 months doing dead time all because of their mistake and miscommunication.

 

LAWYER RESPONSE:

It sounds like clarification is needed on what the judge sentenced your friend.  An attorney will be needed to file a motion for a sentence modification. Hire an attorney for your friend so that the attorney can look into the facts and the prior sentence.

I’m on probation in Tennessee but I live in Atl. What do I do?

Question:

Do I have to go to the state I’m currently on probation to get it transferred to the state I reside in? I’m on probation in Tennessee but I live in Ga. I didn’t know I was on probation in Tennessee. I want to get the probation transferred to Georgia but I’m being told I must travel to Tennessee to initiate the transfer and it could take anywhere from two weeks to 1 month. I don’t have the means to travel like that and I’ll lose my job. Do I have to go to Tennessee just to get my probation transferred down to Georgia?

 

Lawyer Anwser:

Yes you or someone on your behalf would have to go to Tennessee to address the probation. You may want to hire a local Tennessee attorney that can probably handle a lot on your behalf without you present. But you would have to address this in Tennessee at least to get a transfer. The other attorney answers are great as well.
