I am 19. Thinking the officer would not believe me if I told him I wasn't drinking I told him that I had a beer thinking he would cut us some slack for being cooperative more likely. Also they didn't inform us of our rights.
Of course you can fight these cahrges, but not by yourself. You are facing a hefty fine and a licnese suspension. Talk to an experienced lawyer. Most of us offer a free consultation before you would have to retain us. (Including me). Do not try to handle this without a lawyer,See question
Already scheduled for a formal arraignment.
Mr. Posa is correct. Anything can happen and you have not stated sufficient facts , including your criminal history if any, for anyone to answer your specific question. I will for the purposes of this question that you do not have an attorney. GET ONE and stop playing lawyer. Time is critical.See question
I've had a hearing (the one before the preliminary hearing) in district court in Montgomery Co., PA that went over the charges that are being brought against me for taking (out of pure despiration) $513, already giving back $145 to the plaintiff. ...
You have recieved good advice from my colleagues.. DO NOT PLAY LAWYER! Burglary is a very serious charge, especially in Montgomery County. Truth be told, ARD is probably a long shot at best, but possible. Continue to explore if you qualify for a PD or speak to experienced private counsel in Montco asap. The preliminary hearing is critical.See question
I was arrested along with 32 others in an alleged drug ring. My charges are crazy. I'm guilty by association but that's it. I can't understand how they can charge me. Norristown, PA
First you must contact an experienced criminal defense attorney immediately. DO NOT WAIVE the hearing without the guidance of your lawyer. These are very serious charges that could mean many years in prison. If your preliminary hearing is coming up soon and you don't have a lawyer, request a continuance. Usually, the judge will grant you one to find a lawyer. Most criminal defense lawyers, myself included, will not charge you for the first meeting.See question
I was pulled over because my tail light was out (which it wasn't). I was asked if I had any drugs on me and said no. The officer asked if I would agree to be searched. I complied. He found an empty bag in my pocket and proceeded to search my car....
Your situation seems to be coming more commonplace. And not just in Abington. Call a local Abington criminal defense attorney for a free consultation. Most of us, including myself, offer a free consultation which I suggest should be in person rather than just a phone call.See question

My Pa colleagues are correct, You can be charged and under certain circumstances there may be a defense. I noticed that you are in Hatfield PA so I will assume that this happened in Montgomery County. You should contact an experienced lawyer in Montgomery County who knows the police, courts and District Attorneys. Do this asap. Time is always a factor. Most of us will speak with you at no charge for a first conference.See question
Someone was told not to do something on their college grounds out of concern for their safety by a public safety officer. Person did it again and was caught again. Person was then cited for criminal trespass. Is a defense even possible?
There is always the possibility of a valid defense. But for future consideration, the best defense in the future is for "someone" to grow up.See question
On probation with felony not related to DUI. Was stopped for car trouble and held in jail for 1.2 alcohol level. Released 2hrs later at .05.
Short answer is probably "Yes" for a VOP and the DUI As suggested by my colleagues, retain an experienced attorney for both problems to minimize you exposure.See question

I never had any prior arrest nor any other crime What are the possibilities of the outcome ?
First, respond to the citation and plead NOT GUILTY. I believe the court is on Henderson Rd. Contact an experienced criminal lawyer who is familiar with the police and Court in King of Prussia. There may be ways to avoid a conviction for retail theft but only if you work with someone who has handled this type of situation before with success.See question
