Legal Answers
Q. If a probation officer comes to your house, without a probation warrant is that lawful? or unlawful?
A: Probation can come at any time and search your house or car without a warrant. When you are on probation, you have a 4th amendment waiver, so you have waived your rights to searches without a warrant. If they find anything illegal during the search, you are likely to be arrested and charged with a new crime, in addition to having a probation violation.
Q. if my 17 year daughter leaves home without my say so can she get in trouble with the law? can i do anything since she 17
A: In Georgia 17 is considered an adult under the law.
Q. How long do I have to wait to get purchase a firearm after I completed my first offender probation
A: You have to wait until the judge issues an order discharging you from probation. Call your probation officer and tell them your sentence is over and ask for your discharge paperwork from First Offender. Probation will then contact the judge and get them to sign off on your discharge.
