State of Georgia. My son was on probation under first offender( possession of marijuana intent to distribute), probation for possession of marijuana(misdemeanor), and theft by taking(first offender probation) Yes three different probation with fines on all and restitution on one. He relocated to Ohio with all three probation officers awareness and court. He was suppose to report by phone and send payment in. He started out sending payments and reporting and then stopped. At this point, is it even possible that he can deal with this without going to jail or prison? It has been about two years now. Thank you

My attorney filed a motion to dismiss a criminal complaint

My attorney filed a motion to dismiss a criminal complaint against me for being facially insufficient. Even a layman without a law degree would agree - it was poorly drafted and barely touched on elements to make a prima facie case. In NYC a one count B misdemeanor doesn't get a trial jury - it is bench (I am sure you know this, but I was horrified to learn) --the prosecutor responded to this motion NOT by redrafting complaint, but rather denying it and including for reason of denial email correspondence and other exhibits which made apparent my previous arrest in a case I received COMPLETE DISMISSAL for bc the prosecutor made egregious errors. It is my personal opinion this is a revenge thing, but that's just my opinion. As such, the judge denied the motion bc the prosecutor only submitted exhibits convenient for them, while my attorney was attempting to be ethical and stick to the four corners of the complaint.My question is this: are a defendant's rights violated if, in a response for a motion to dismiss for lack of making a prima facie case, the prosecutor's response to judge, who is the fact decider in bench trial, was a series of exhibits of a previous case that had been dismissed in my favor and sealed? I feel like this was extremely unfair.
