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.
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.
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?
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.
What is a reset notice mean? My son have probation for 10 years every since 2014. Now my son’s probation officer is trying to reduce my probation and we got a re-set notice.
Without seeing the actual document, I would agree that the reset notice is just the document resetting the case for another date. There are many reasons that a case may be reset. If he has an attorney, contact them and let them know that you received the notice.
“What happens when you violate a conditional discharge in GA with the same offense marijuana less than an ounce. I was pulled over for the factory mirror tint on my car and had marijuana less than an ounce. I tried to eat it to get rid of it but had to spit it out I was charged with DUI marijuana for trying to eat it and less than an once I’m on a conditional discharge for less than an once now what will the judge most likely do?”
Getting into trouble while you already have a pending legal case is not a good indicator to the Judges/court that you will not “re- offend.” If you have violated the terms of your original conditional discharge agreement then the judge has many options as far as what he/she will do. Hiring legal counsel is the best option for you as you deal with the new case, as well as the consequences of violating the terms of the old case. Simmons Law provides counsel in the areas of business, criminal defense, and entertainment law. Contact an attorney that can help assess the facts and assist you through the process.

Question: Can two different states look at charges two different ways? Basically I was charge with aggravated assault I plead out simple assault. When my background is pulled the aggravated assault charge shows. Employers think I have a felony. Could Georgia be looking at it wrong or could there be a mix up where they never reduced my charge?
Answer: Yes, every State classifies different crimes according to that States statutes, etc. It looks as though if you plead to a lesser charge, then what is showing up is that you were arrested for aggravated assault (even though you weren’t convicted). I would explain the circumstances to the employers, and you may want to make sure your background is updated for accuracy.
