    Default Probation Warrant

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: Georgia

    I am currently serving a year for a misdemeanor warrant in Georgia, I am working in Utah. The probation department said I had failed a drug screen with alcohol. I do not drink.
    I told them that as well, They want me to turn myself in, so I can sit in jail for 3 months waiting for a probation hearing. or I can do 2 weeks if i accept the violation. However the violation would extend my probation 1 more year.

    What I admitted to was not alcohol related.

    I really don't see a question in your post anywhere.

    My Question is, When does the process start to get to the hearing. There is an active warrant, but no hearing. I did not do what they charged, I want to see a judge before being punished. If I hire an attorney can I avoid sitting in jail for the next three months.

    The process starts after you are arrested either by turning yourself in or by being picked up.

    Contact an attorney back in Georgia. Did you have permission to be in Utah or did you just abscond?

    Yes I told them I was leaving, Its my regular work. They told me I didnt have to tell them I was leaving the state after they were caught giving out my travel plans. I keep in regular contact with them. that is why i know there is a warrant.

    What is confusing is that the system seems to want me at a $9.50 hr job. When My carrier has me at 150k. The punishment is more important than rehabilitation.

    Are you and Stalker30 the same person?

    If you are in Utah how did you get screened in GA?

    No, they are a spammer. There's been a raft of these where the person posts a copy of someone else's posts (they are manipulating the post counts so they can avoid the moderation checks). This forum really needs to jump to XF or at least VB 5.
