Legal Answers
2 Questions Answered

Q. Am I facing any jail time being a 1st offender with the following charges:Possession of Firearm and Aggravated Assault?
A: If you lose a felony aggravated assault case, you likely would have to serve state prison time. Insofar as whether you can trust a public defender, the quick answer may be, "What is your other option?" Self-representation is a very bad option. If you have family or friends that can help you with legal fees, and you later pay them back, consider meeting with a private criminal defense attorney for a FREE consultation. With your clean record the best option would be to work toward pushing the prosecutor toward a lesser offense first, then negotiating the punishment phase, possibly under a first offender act disposition.
Q. Can a drivers license be suspended even if there wasn't a DUI conviction (20 years ago)?
A: Sounds as though you may have skipped out on court, and a "failure to appear" warrant suspended your right to drive. Your best bet is to contact a criminal defense attorney that deals with Georgia criminal history records. Such an old case will require a good bit of time, so be prepared to pay a fee.
