  • Probation Violation Charges Dropped Georgia

    Please help we are almost out of options...My boyfriend was arrested on trumped up drug charges....his probation was thus violated and he was sent to prison...about five months after his probation was violated all charges were no billed by the grand jury (dropped)...so now he is sitting in prison for probation violation only, with no new charges or no technicalities against him...we have filed all sorts of paper work and talked to so many people and are getting no where..what are the chances of him being released before 2/3 of his time is up for a possible TPM...also what can we do to get him out???

    You indicated that you talked with numerous people. The key question is were any of those individuals an attorney?

    With him in jail, you're going to need one to attempt to get him released. This is not something you can do on your own.

      Yes we have contacted numerous attorneys and they are all entirely too expensive...he filed a habeus corpus pro se(himself) and that is where we are now...his fear is that the judge will not even give him a chance to plea the case on his own nor does he really want to try(you know get in front of the judge and not know his stuff)...Is there not anyone we can contact or anything that we can do as far as the parole board?

        A parole board only comes into play when he has served at least a minimum portion of their sentence as decided by the judge. If that has not occurred, they do not come into play.

        If the judge allows him to argue his case, then that's what he gets the chance to do; present the facts pertaining to his confinment and allow the judge to rule. If the judges refuses to hear his plea or rules against him, then he serves his time and is released.

        You might contact your state or local bar association and ask for references to attorney's who handle cases pro-bobo (free) or at reduced fees.
