    Wood, 24, of Geneva, Ala., was found guilty as charged Thursday of first-degree murder, burglary of a structure while armed with a firearm and robbery with a firearm. Assistant State Attorneys Larry Basford and Shala Jefcoat showed jurors during the weeklong trial that Wood and co-defendant Dillon Rafsky beat down, bound then executed Shores, 66, after he found them on his property the evening of April 19. Friday, Basford proved to the jury that the murder met three aggravating factors: it was done to avoid arrest; it was committed during a burglary or robbery; and was cold, calculated and premeditated.

In the state of Alabama a mother allowed her 18 year old son drink alcohol at there home and the police showed up and gave the son a breathalyzer and he blew 1.2.

I was arrested in Acworth, GA for poss. of marijuana less than 1oz while on vacation. I was previously incarcerated for DWLSR in 2011. Can community service and/or probation be done out of state?
You will want to direct your question to Georgia attorneys who should know the answer to your questions.
Had probation in al and ga. Had ga transferred to al. Failed drug test and al revoked. Ga issued warrant on that day as well that was 2011. Been locked up 4 yrs. Go to ga soon. What will they do? Will ga take this time I've done since it's the same drug test? All fines are paid in ga. What can I expect?
You'd be better served to ask a GA attorney, one local to that jurisdiction, but I can speculate that if you've been...
I'm wondering what to expect at the court house and what my argument would be. I'm currently in school and taking care of my granny so i don't have a job so I'm wondering about fine and weather i will have to keep flying to Alabama to handle this matter. Also I'm on summery probation in California will that affect this case.
