Many times there are options other than pleading guilty to the highest charge and in some instances an experienced criminal defense attorney can have the charges thrown out at a suppression hearing if rights were violated at the time of the seizure.See question

If I plea to accidents involving damage which is listed as an m3 what is the severity and if I make a negotiation to drop everything else
In asking about "severity", since you already know the grading of the offense, I assume you want to know your potential jail exposure. Your potential sentence would depend on your prior record score (PRS). You should contact an experienced criminal defense attorney to discuss your case and who can advise you as to the "severity" of your legal matter. A criminal plea can also have negative consequences and jeopardize your legal rights if a civil suit is brought against you and you do not properly take steps to minimize your liability and protect your rights.See question

If it is your first offense and the merchandise is under a $150 value it would be a summary offense if you plead guilty or you are convicted of the offense after a summary trial. You may want to speak to an experienced criminal defense attorney. If the value is only $1.00 as you stated there may be other avenues the attorney can explore on your behalf that may not result in a summary conviction.See question

If the other party does not agree with putting your child into daycare or objects to a specific daycare facility you would need to petition the Court.

If you review your ARD application there is likely a waiver of your speedy trial rights under Rule 600. If you have a valid Rule 600 argument you must put it in writing and file it with the criminal clerks office and request a hearing. The DA represents the Commonwealth and it is not uncommon for them to oppose such a motion since you are essentially saying that they failed to prosecute you in a punctual manner.See question

Either party can petition the Court to have a Guardian Ad Litem (GAL) appointed for the minor child. The costs of the GAL are usually split between the parties (parents) unless one or both parties have been given IFP status. Maybe your ex is simply saying that he paid his lawyer to petition for a GAL to be appointed. If you have an attorney you should address these type of questions and concerns to your attorney.See question
