The above advice is on target. I would tell you to wrap up the last 26 hours, get that to the PO, and then negotiate an exit plan. If you have to go in front of a judge you are going to want to bring an attorney, end of story. You have defenses and you need someone to help you present them. Good Luck!
I am going to agree with what everyone has said above and encourage you to have a long sit down with your lawyer. You need independent legal advice that is free from any interference from outside influences. You also deserve to have confidence in the lawyer that is representing you. Far too often I see people go with the cheapest lawyer out there and they forget how important the attorney/client relationship is when dealing with such heady matters. Good luck!
As stated above, you need to coordinate with her attorney and do it sooner rather than later. The courts have specific factors they will look at when they evaluate the availability of bond for any one specific case.
Ties to the community, likelihood to re-offend, etc, etc. You want to make sure you are assisting the attorney as much as possible as these hearings can sadly be all too brief and judges treat them perfunctorily. You want to make sure the judge wakes up and pays attention to...
Your PD will generally NOT assist you in processing an expungement, as that is not part of their agreement with the county. And the attorney above is correct that a conviction will generally prevent you from being granted an expungement.
Now as how to get one, first you need to fully complete your case. It must be signed and filed in the court. You want to get at least 2 certified originals for your files.

The above answers are right on and you should speak with an attorney sooner rather than later since there are many hard deadlines in post-conviction legal processes. I will add that you will want to pay close attention to the new sentencing guidelines and criminal justice reforms that are in process currently. Recidivist sentencing issues were widely debated during the process as the mandatory minimums were creating unjustifiable result for many defendants. try and find a Local Practitioner...
The two answers above are giving you good advice, and you are gonna have a heck of a go at it. There are several paths to a recovery, but they are most likely going to take substantial resources and a cooperative lawyer.
You may want to look up and talk to someone over at the Southern Center for Human Rights as they will have a list of lawyers who are experienced in suing the jail, just be prepared for a long and arduous journey. I would also advise you that there are other forms of...
Rachel is spot on that you both need attorney's as bad consequences can flow from well intentioned attempts to alleviate his current predicament. You are subject to charges and can actually aggravate his if you are not careful in your discussions with the state. Find your lawyer first, then look for one for him.
Be very careful, as EVERYTHING you say to a representative of the state can and will be used against you and him during a prosecution. I have had many clients inadvertently make...
The Fulton County Solicitor General can be reached at 404-612-4800 and they have a Victim Witness department run by some very nice people.
I will give you a word of caution, however. If you make statements to them that can be construed as violative of the law, they have a duty to report those types of statements or frustrations of prosecution to the elected prosecutors.
It can be a tricky area and often people want a lawyer by their side when they talk to the state as Interfering...
As with the above answer, you really need to talk with a local lawyer for a more thorough evaluation of your case. The 4th amendment and Miranda Warnings are quite tricky as they are NOT like you see on TV and the law has been steadily eroded by the courts since 1968 when Miranda was decided. A MS lawyer is who you need, so I would call the local bar there unless you know a lawyer with connections there.
Before anyone can give you a good answer to your question, a much more detailed conversation needs to take place where you explore the relationships and issues at hand.
