My question involves criminal law for the state of: GA
I am in a bizarre situation. 12 years ago, I was arrested in GA for a misdemeaner. I posted my own bail. I missed my court date. 12 years later, I found out I had a bench warrant. I turned myself in and posted another bond for failure to appear. I found out through the clerks office that my original bail was not forfiet. It is still sitting somewhere. Furthermore, the clerk said that it gathers interest. My attorney says that the charges will probably be dismissed. Regardless, :the maximum penalty for both charges does not add up to the bail. QUESTION: Where is the money? Is it gathering interest and how much? Will I wee any of it?
