    No, you can't go to jail for the admin hearing. It is a civil proceeding that deals with your license. Request one. You have 15 days from the arrest. It isn't a trial. Consult an attorney. They can go in your place and fight for you.

    PTI is the pretrial intervention program and is a program generally done that results in a dismissal. Probation is something that happens sometimes after a plea. The program differs in different places. Consult an attorney for what is best for you. There are financial considerations and things to think about based on the charge.

    Terribly sorry to hear about this. I would strongly recommend seeking counseling before acting. This forum is generally more oriented towards people accused of crime. If your grandma is continuing to commit a crime you need to alert law enforcement.

    Your friend needs to consult an attorney immediately. Sometimes you don't have to be caught "red handed". Sometimes there is other proof. Sometimes police use confidential informants and controlled purchases. An attorney can assist with these serious charges.

    Generally, "released on your own recognizance..." That means that the individual signed himself out of jail and personally garunteed his attendance at court proceedings. It could mean something else.

    Assuming you have no other prior felonies, probably. Consult an attorney. There may be some federal laws in play depending on your record and the types of felonies that were dismissed. You might be fine, but talk to an attorney with more info.
