My question involves criminal law for the state of: Ga
I just completed 8years of felony probation for "theft by taking". I was given probation for 8 years and 14k restitution. My probation period just need this past week. I still have about 6k of unpaid restition that has not been to courts. My probation officer did not give me a future report date on my last visit.
About midway through my probation I was put on a non reporting status. Only had to send fee monthly by mail. Stop send payments duebto job loss. Warrant was issued for nonpayment. On Sept 2010 I was pulled over for not wearing a seatbelt. A check revealed that I had warrant for non payment. I spent 30 days in jail before I got a hearing. Judge did not revokenprobation or put toll on probation. She ordered 1 year ankle monitor. I have had it on 6 months now and my probation has ended.
I know I will need a lawyer, that's a given. I called the one I used to get me out last Sept to ask what next steps are. Frankly I don't think he was accurate with his assessment that I'm done and don't have to pay remaining restitution. Since that was part of my probation, I'm sure it has to be paid fully. Again therebis no toll on my probation. Judge did not revoke after being picked up for non payment and reporting.
This case was in Gwinette Co. I know they are pretty tough.
Can judge require me to keep ankle monitor on?
Section 17 in Ga criminal code makes reference to whatever comes first, restitution or probation served.
I need a local lawyer that works with g
Gwinette co folks. If u have time for my case please contact me.
Any info u can provide here please do so..
