    Call the District Attorney's office and ask if the case has been filed yet. If it has, arrive at the clerk's office before 8:30 a.m. and ask if you can have it advanced. You can also look at the court website to see if the case has been filed.

    You can almost always work out a better resolution to a case by entering into a deal with the DA's office. After trial you have much less control over the ultimate sentence. There is the possibility of jail time. However, if this is a first offense it is not likely. You would more likely be sentenced to community service or cal trans work and probation.

    If there is a felony warrant for you you will be arrested if you turn yourself in. However, when you see the judge immediately after being arrested your attorney can explain the situation and they will find a program that will take you. You are making matters worse by staying away. The longer you wait, the worse your situation will be. You need to make the judge believe that you are not a flight risk.

    Depending on the court it is possible to have a laywer appear on your behalf to have the warrant recalled. If the charges are drug related, your subsequent recovery and productive lifestyle along with your famiily situation will go a long way to reducing any penalty you may face. You don't want to ignore this for many reasons.

    The case agent usually does sit at counsel table with the US Attorney in a federal trial. This is standard procedure. The discovery provided to defense counsel prior to trial most likely contained his or her opinion, training and experience so no additional notes are required.

    Social Media sites like facebook, twiter, myspace etc., are a whole new area of concern for individuals. Charges are being filed because law enforcement is using these sites to investigate people and they are using content from these sites as evidence in cases. You have to be very careful what you post. I agree with the attorney who said that without knowing the exact content of your post it is hard to answer your question. I recommend that you contact an experienced criminal defense lawyer...

    You need to go to court to have the warrant recalled. When you see the judge you can show your receipt but it will up to the DA to decide whether or not they are going to dismiss the charges.

    It depends upon the amount of cocaine and what your criminal history consists of even though it was over ten years ago. There are mandatory mimimums in federal drug cases which depend upon the amount of substance and the gun charge can add signficant time to the sentence.
