You should really consult and hire a local your county attorney to represent you. Domestic violence cases are prosecuted significantly more closely by the District Attorney's Office in York county due to their nature. There are multiple possible outcomes and you will be best served by getting started on a number of things proactively early in your case in order to achieve the result you want at the end.See question
Is it possible to plea bargain after signing a written statement admitting guilt?
Yes, this is absolutely possible. In fact your attorney should utilize the fact that you admitted as "cooperation", and therefore may very likely be able to persuade an officer, agent and the DA's office or US Attorney's Office that you are worthy of a better deal. That said, there are a number of other proactive things you can be doing early in your case as your case moves through the system in order to continue to bootstrap it into a better plea-bargain. I would highly suggest hiring local York County counsel, who will best know how to navigate this in order to get you the best results.See question

It is always good to be very proactive in a case instead of reactive, because many times then it's too late.See question
The numbers indicated by my colleagues are correct regarding the maximum sentences. However, this is only one thing to consider in your case. If this is the first time you have Benn in trouble, or even if it's not, it's very important, especially in York County, to be very proactive and strategic regarding how you handle your case. I would definitely recommend contacting local York County Counsel as soon as possible in order to begin on a proper path in order to ultimately achieve the best outcome possible. Depending upon the situation, that very well may be full dismissal and expungement of your case, however there is a very specific way that you need to go about achieving that.See question

You may or may not actually receive a disorderly conduct citation. The other thing you could receive is a summons for the misdemeanor charge of possession of a small amount of marijuana. Either way, you should contact an attorney because there may be ways to avoid either one of those from actually going on your criminal record. To answer your question about the summary, for the summary citation of disorderly conduct, the maximum penalty is 90 days in jail and a $300 fine. In practice, jail usually does not occur. But again, if you pay a fine you are effectively pleading guilty to a crime, which could have long-lasting inhibiting effects. I would contact a local York County attorney as soon as possible.See question
I got into a verbal and physical altercation seven years ago . I never had any other criminal offenses against me and I am now 43 years old .
Summary offenses can be expunged after five (5) years from the date of conviction, as long as there has been no subsequent criminal conduct or prosecution. That said, it is not automatic and a petition still needs to be drafted and filed with the court of common pleas and it granted by a judge. I think it usually wise to seek the joinder of the Commonwealth, through the District Attorney's Office, prior to filing the expungement, as it makes the process more seamless and effective. I would definitely suggest hiring local York County Counsel to assist you in both drafting and properly filing the expungement so everything goes through as planned.See question
Trying to find out if my attorney is licensed to practice
The first issue is that you hired an attorney while concerned whether or not he or she is licensed to practice law. I would suggest speaking with the individual and then reconsidering your decision in the first place.See question
If someone has been charged with a felony f3 and later the charge gets withdrawn, can he/she hire a criminal lawyer to make the f3 to a misdemeanor to avoid getting his/her immigration status jeopardized?
If the F3 was withdrawn, that person could hire an attorney to seek expungement, as the data is non-conviction data and therefore eligible for expungement. Additionally, if the F3 was withdrawn and the person plead to a misdemeanor, a partial expungement for the case may be sought to expunge the F3 data.See question

Having an attorney navigate this for you early and throughout will put you in a very good position come time for your case to be disposed of. Regarding whether a police officer has to read your rights, depends upon the specific scenario and what is occurring at the time you were actually being interrogated. A local attorney will be best placed to analyze your scenario and make those determinations.See question
