    I agree with the first two Attorney's that you should look to your written fee agreement with your existing attorney. Montgomery County ARD program is working on some of their own issues right now, and I suggest that either your old attorney, or a new one if appropriate should file a request for reconsideration. You should do this as quickly as possible. Paul A. Bauer, III

    Yes your probation officer can lodge a detainer against you, prior to the new charges being litigated. I would strongly suggest you speak to your attorney, who may be able to convince your probation officer to hold off lodging the detainer until the preliminary hearing is over on the new charges. In any event call our attorney at once. Paul A. Bauer,III 610-970-4961

    Make sure you ask for a hearing. The Commonwealth has the burden of proof. Just because the officer smells alcohol, it is not enough evidence to convict you, absent any other evidence. I would speak to an attorney in your area.

    I agree with Steve. The attorney client relationship works the best when there is good communication between the parties. Ask him the reason for the delay. Paul A. Bauer, III Bauer & Associates Attorneys at Law 610-970-4961 www.pottstownattorney.com

    In short, I always recommend people charged with a crime to hire an attorney, especially at the preliminary hearing where normally a prosecutor does not attend. In many cases, our attorney will be able to speak with the arresting officer and work out a deal which is favorable in your situation. Don't try to do it yourself! Paul A.

    Please get your son an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. With that amount of weight your son is looking at significant jail time. The amount of his bail should be a big clue to you and your husband that this is a vey serious case. Feel free to post additional questions as his should not be taken lightly by you. Paul A.

    I agree with both attorneys. If they were going to file charges they probably would have taken you right then and there, and explained to you that you would be receiving a citation in the mail. Since they didn't, the first attorney is correct you will receive a letter from the company advising you of a civil judgment they will seek from you for a few hundred dollars. Paul Bauer

    I agree with both of the other two attorney's who have responded to you. Typically, you could say that "no news is good news." However, if you are really concerned, you could contact the local district court, where the incident happened, as was suggested by the second attorney, to determine if a warrant exists. It is possible that the police sent a non traffic citation to the district court, and they attempted to notify you, but for whatever reason were unsuccessful. Although, given your...

    In short the answer to this specific question is No. It is not illegal for you and your 19 year old boyfriend to talk to each other, provided that the conversation you are having is not for an illegal purpose. I do want to echo the sentiment and the concern that the first person identified. You have posted several questions on a site for lawyers, clearly identifying that the relationship may be headed into a physical relationship, which may prove problematical for both legal and ethical...

    I would first suggest that you may have a drinking problem and to seek counseling. A public drunkeness is a summary offense, and most likely you will be fined. However, giving your reported history, if you keep appearing before the same district court, they will eventually remember you, and therefore the odds of you being sentenced to a few days in prison increase.
