Mr. Myshin is absolutely correct and I recommend following his advice. As a side comment, the next time you have to go to court, retain a lawyer and don't even try to represent yourself. You will only make matters worse and more difficult, like you did this time.
At a minimum you are looking at a DUI and underage drinking. There could also be recklessly endangering another person, corruption of a minor and so on. A great deal of what the penalty might be depends on your prior record. I would suggest that you not "discuss" this in an open forum but save it for discussion with an experienced attorney in the area.
Mr. Keller is spot on. You must contact an attorney who is experienced in both criminal defense as well as insurance law. Also, make sure that you have your policy ready for the attorney to review. Your policy may very well, dictate what reimbursement, if any, may be due.
First, no more posts. Go out and get an experienced attorney and Mr. Cooper is correct, using the public defender is fine, if you qualify. Contrary to some opinion on the street, Public Defenders are real lawyers and criminal defense is what they do all day, every day. Just like private attorneys, some are better than others. Good luck.
My colleagues are spot on in their answers. The short answer is "Yes". Your friend may be prosecuted. Sounds like she was scrpit shopping to get more medication than was medically need. I also suggest that they contact a lawyer who has experience in this area of criminal law.
First, make sure that you are still qualified for a PD by going to the PD's office in the courthouse in Norristown asap. The PD you had at the prelim will not be your trial PD. If you decide to retain private counsel, do so immediately and make sure you find a lawyer who is very eperienced in drugs cases and Montgomery County. Do not discuss any further details on this public site.
