Pennsylvania does not apply the same standard as the federal system does. The real question is to determine whether the person is serving state time in prison or county time in a jail. Good time gets awarded differently for both systems.See question

I was charged with theft from moter vehicle in PA in 2011 and have satisfied every condition and was let off probation a year early. they charged me with an m1 when the amount was less than 200$. Is this legal?
Your only chance for relief would be to file a PCRA (Post-Conviction Relief Act) Motion asking for a new trial based on ineffective assistance of counsel as your lawyer failed to see an obvious error. This would be a longshot motion though because the time limits for filing a PCRA are very stringent and extensions of time are only given for very limited grounds. Consult with a criminal appeals lawyer and they will be able to give you a more precise answer.See question
It has been 2 months since my Fiance' has been arrested and we still can not get a police report or discovery. The lawyer has tried multiple times and they keep telling him its not ready yet. Why?
Sometimes when discovery is provided electronically it takes awhile to place the files in a readable transferable format so they can be shared, it happens often in federal courtSee question
Arrested on drug charges. Released on unsecured bail until preliminary hearing,
Usually no but if the person appears visibly intoxicated in court the judge may order it to prove the person is cognizant of the proceedings which are occurring. Otherwise, I have not ever seen someone ordered for a drug test in these circumstances, although for VOP (Violation of Probation/Parole) I have seen the judge order a person to report to the PO's office that day or the next for drug testing. The best advice is do not consume narcotics, alcohol, or anything else which can impair your ability to understand what is happening in court and you should be ok.See question
