    The statute of limitations for torts in PA is two years. Are you sure it has been two full years? Also it is a bit surprising under these circumstances that he would only have had a fine.

    Your right to a jury trial depends on the charges against you. Without that information, it is impossible to answer the question.

    She *is* getting off easy. While it always possible charges will be changed, it is unlikely. She needs an experienced lawyer at her side to get her safely through this process given the more serious charge she could face.

    There are several questions here and I would need some more facts to really answer your question. First, you should know that the crime of "public drunkenness" in PA requires that you pose a danger to yourself or someone else or that you are disturbing the peace in some way. Depending on the circumstances, your porch may or may not be considered "public." I recommend you retain an experienced criminal attorney to represent you in this matter.

    You must have evidence of wrongful conduct on the part of the state for a successful civil rights action. A good source for you may be The Innocence Project at Temple University.

    Yes, this change in charge can be made. But you should retain counsel anyway because the police have no obligation to reduce the charge, even if one has made this assertion to you.

    "Fair Use" is a *defense* to copyright infringement. If you have any question whether your use of someone else's intellectual property is infringement and, if so, whether the fair use defense applies, contact an attorney to review your use.
