My question involves criminal law for the state of: Georgia
I was released from jail with Pretrial conditions. One of those conditions was to appear every court date. I moved from Georgia to Alabama 2 weeks after I was released from jail. The court agreed to let me move. I have been going back and forth to court for a year now and I recently couldnt make my court date because of transportation problems. The next day I called my pretrial releasee person and she was saying that I needed to turn myself in. My lawyer suggested the same thing but my question is what is going to happen once I turn myself in? Will I have to sit in jail for a lengthy amount of time or can I settle this situation and be out the next day? Help me please.
