HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.I am sorry to hear of this situation.Please tell meHave you been charged?What is the question and what information can I provide you in regard to those charges, please?
Thank youThe possible penalty for a first time simple battery under GA law is a fine up to $1000 and up to 1 year in jail.I suggest, you consider having your local attorney work out a plea with the District Attorney, where this is a deferred adjudication. In other words, you take a guilty plea, you get probation and once that is all satisfactorily completed, the conviction would be removed from your record.The best case scenario would be to have the matter dismissed.Please let me know if you have other questions in this regard. Keep in mind, I can only answer and provide information for what you ask. I do not know what you need to know, unless you tell me. Please rate positive as this is how I get credit for my time and information.Thank you
