With the charges I'm facing (3rd degree felonies), there's gonna be prison time and fines (I'm looking at $15,000.00 or more). So I'm trying to see if those fines can be paid while being locked up in prison?
I think you need to consult with a lawyer right away on the case. You need to get advice about what you are facing with the charges. Payment of the fines should not be your focus at this time. You need to prepare a strategy to deal with the case.See question

I live in Reading, PA. And yesterday morning, there was a search warrant on me. They seized my computer tower and a few more items because I violated Title 18 6312 (Sexual Abuse of Children). I didn't molest anybody, but I downloaded child porn fo...
Unless there is an arrest warrant for you, there is no reason to "turn yourself in" at this time. If the police do file charges, then you will appear before a District Judge and bail will be set. If you can't afford a lawyer, then you should apply for a public defender.See question
