A: If you probation says that you need to drug tested, then you need to submit to the test. If you refuse, then you are in violation of probation and will go to jail immediately.
Q. What kind of sentence am I looking at for a shoplifting charge in Georgia (Code 16-8-14)
A: If you shoplifted over $ 500 worth then it is a felony and your are looking at a year or more in jail. If you shop lifted under $ 500 worth then it is a misdemeanor and you are looking at less than a year in jail. Being that it is your second offense, the court is going to treat you harsher than a first offender. As far as your job, you'll have to admit to the arrest if they ask and the prior conviction and see if they trust you enough to hire you. Why are you shoplifting? You should get some counseling so you don't commit these crimes as a repeat offender of you are going to find yourself in serious trouble with the law.
Q. How do i file a fast and speedy trial motion

Q. What could a judge give me if I am convicted of theft by receiving?
A: It depends on if it is a misdemeanor (under $ 500) or a felony (over $ 500). Misdemeanor can carry less than 1 year in jail, felonies more than 1 year in jail. Plus, they will look at your past criminal history to see if you qualify for first offender status.
Q. I need a court appointed lawyer. I do not work, my husband does. What documents should I bring to arraignment?
A: Take your proof of income and the court will have forms for you to fill out to see if you quality for a public defender. If so, then your attorney can either waive the arraignment and set a new date to get more information on the case. You should pled not guilty not matter what so that court give you time to seek competent legal counsel whether it is a private attorney or public defender. Don't give away your rights by pleading guilty.

A: If the bond is due and the judge signs the warrant, the a bail recovery agent can serve the warrant and possibly take you to jail.
Q. Hello. I have received SEVERAL letters from attorneys & law firms this week, regarding a lawsuit/garnishment pending...
A: Call the court to see if there is an action against you. Don't give any of your personal information as this might be a scam just to get your personal information and your credit card information.
Q. Can you be sent to prison without a final sentencing?
A: When you are arrested you can be held without bond if you are a flight risk and/or the court determines that you will do more harm to society that outweighs your right to be free until trial (ex. Casey Anthony and OJ Simpson). If they don't have room for you in jail, you might end up in a prison. Technically, they can't "sentence" you to prison until after sentencing, however.
