My brother was charged with enticing of an elderly person.

my brother was charged with enticing of an elderly person. He fell for this Nigerian scam in late 2015. He was receiving cashier's checks from this lady in south georiga. He did not know her, but he was told by this so call girl from Nigeria that he needed to cash the chekcs and wire them to her. That is what he did. However, when he was arrested, they originally arrest him for fraud. Now the DA has changed her the charge to enticement of an elderly person. My brother never emailed, texted, chatted or called her. I have the police report and the elderly lady stated that she was told by someone else to mail cashier's checks to my brother.JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen?Customer: Georgia. He was arrested March 30, 2016 in Ellijay Ga and transported to Fitzgearld GA (Ben Hill County)JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Yes. Originally the secret service talked to him, but they closed the case. I have had a handful of phone conversations with the secret service and stated my brother was stupid, but not a criminal.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Just trying to help my brother. He has been in jail since March of 2016. I am not sure how they can change the charge other than for convenience for an easier case for the DA

I was in an accident back in October. I had a stop sign and waited for quite a while before proceeding to turn left onto a highway with no stop sign. There was a car in my blind spot behind another car and I thought I was in the clear so continued to turn left and we were t-boned in the intersection. I know I am at fault but I was written a ticket for a failure to obey a stop sign and I need to know if I have any options to get this dropped or something else because they are wanting to charge me $200 plus court fees and I have already had over $32,000 in medical bills not including a surgery I had to have.JA: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: It happened in Champaign ILJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: The state policeman gave me a ticket for failure to obey a stop sign. I went to court on January 20, 2017 and asked for a continuance and go back Feb 16thJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: There were injuries involved, but my insurance covered everything for the other driver and they had only a broken nose. Other than ta That no
