    Exclamation Statue of Limitations on a Probation warrant in Georgia Georgia

    To Whom it May Concern


    I need to know anything on the statue of limitations on a probation warrant in the state of Georgia. If there is even one. And by that I mean if someone was to get out of jail and never report and has been living in another state for almost three years. The charges are not felonies. Just a DUI. I am willing to answer any questions needed to get this stuff straighten out. Thank You

    When you didn't report, you violated your probation, and the time for your probation stops. The warrant is valid forever, and the time on the probation doesn't start running until you're recaptured.

    I recommend you get a lawyer and deal with it tomorrow.

    The rush is that you want to manage this before you get pulled over or something and the warrant comes back to bite you.
    Not everything that makes you mad, sad or uncomfortable is legally actionable.

    I am not now nor ever was an attorney.

    Any statements I make are based purely upon my personal experiences and research which may or may not be accurate in a court of law.

    Call the PO, and ask the PO what if anything will get the warrant recalled. I suspect the PO will tell you to turn yourself in, but I suppose it's possible that he might say pay the fines or start compling with whatever treatment program you were supposed to have done.

    If you're not happy with what the PO tells you, then you may want to contact a lawyer that practices in that jurisdiction.
