It seems very likely that blood was drawn and very possible that a drug screen was run. There may be claims that the results are privileged and therefore inadmissible. It will depend on many aspects of the incident, the arrest, and the medical care. You will need to discuss this with your criminal defense attorney and the attorney representing you in the CINC case.See question

If contacted by DCF or the police get an attorney immediately. Immediately try to figure out how the child got out and take reasonable steps to prevent it happening again.

DO NOT contact the home owner. It could be misinterpreted as an attempt to convince them to not testify. That is a crime in Kansas. It is extremely fortunate you were not charged with a felony burglary. Find an attorney immediately to assist you with this case. Assuming the criminal damage is under $1,000.00 you are looking at two Class B misdemeanors. Each is punishable by up to six months in jail. These could be run concurrently or consecutively.See question

Give your attorney a call. He will know best what likely attitude you will run into with the prosecutor on a request that diversion be terminated early. Basically if the prosecutor agrees the court will sign off. If the prosecutor will not agree you are going to have a very difficult time getting the court to change the terms of the contract you signed with the prosecutor.See question

As long as you had valid permission it was not a crime. If the employee from that business says you did not ask or were told no then it could be a problem. Since it was returned you will likely not have a problem. However if you are questioned tell the police you want to talk to an attorney before talking with them.See question

If you were placed on diversion and completed it you never had a conviction. A successful diversion results in a dismissed case. That does not mean the case is hidden from public view. To hide a case from public view requires an expungement. Contact an attorney in the locality of the original case to determine the cost in that court and the local procedure. When you thought that a completed diversion meant that it was gone and like it never happened you were unfortunately quite mistaken.See question

You almost certainly do not know all the facts. The newspaper is an unreliable source of information. The defendant is not necessarily a reliable source of information. Defendants tell their attorneys things that they will not tell friends, relatives or the newspaper. This is appropriate. The attorney needs to know the truth in order to give the best advice possible. What I am saying is that although you believe the person did not commit the crime you could be wrong.
Sometimes even if a person is innocent the facts the prosecutor can bring to court will convince a jury that the defendant is guilty. This could be a legitimate reason for entering a plea.
It is possible that the attorney does not want to go to trial for lack of experience. If that is true the defendant should seriously consider getting another attorney.
Cost is an unfortunate reality in criminal defense. Most attorneys will charge more for a case that goes to trial than for one which results in a plea bargain. It is the client's decision however whether to accept a deal and plead guilty or to go to trial.See question
