I was recently caught taking $1200 from my job over a period of time. I cooperated the whole time. This is my First offense and I am being charged with a M1 unlawful taking. I am applying for a public defender asap.
First, obtain the services of a lawyer asap, whether it is a private lawyer or a public defender. You will have to go to the court house in Norristown to apply for a PD. As to your question about getting the charges dropped.... I don't have enough information to answer.. However, if this is a first offense you will probably qualify for ARD if this happened in Montgomery County.See question

Find the best.See question
I was told they would not Be able to issue a warrant if they did not have an address for me, is this true? The receptionist at the courthouse told me this.
The receptionist!? My colleagues are correct. If you did not appear, "they" will issue a bench warrant. Find an experienced criminal defense attorney (not his or her receptionist) and get the professional assistance you need to possibly avoid going to jail.See question

My colleagues are collectively spot on. You probably did the right thing by calling the police under the circumstances that you have mentioned. The safety of your son was the most important consideration. He must contact a very experienced criminal defense attorney who is very familiar with Montgomery County, the police and the court.See question

I received a Speeding ticket and pleaded not guilty. I have a court date but it falls on an inconvenient date where I am out of town. This is for those in Pennsylvania
It may be possible for a lawyer to represent you without your attendance. It will depend on the policy of the presiding judge. I have done this on many cases. I suggest that you retain a lawyer who is familiar with the court and the police department.See question
