Charged with possession, attempt to distribute. Bonded out put on house arrest. I've violated twice, I wanted to know is it possible to be taken off until tried in court. How much is it going to cost me for a lawyer to take my case?
Attorneys are not permitted to solicit business/give quotes through this forum, so you'll have to take the initiative to contact one or more criminal defense attorneys. As for how much it'll cost, if I were giving you a quote, I would want a lot more details. My suggestion is that you use the Find a Lawyer feature at the top of the page to find some criminal defense attorneys to call. Many offer free consultations, so it shouldn't cost you anything to get some quotes.
Also, I don't recommend sharing any further details on this forum, only during confidential consultations with criminal defense attorneys, because this forum is not confidential.

Unfortunately an answer to this question is not as straight forward as it may appear if you want to hire a competent attorney.
There are so much more details about the case that will need to be discussed in a private confidential setting including the circumstances of your violations, prior criminal history, have you had any attempts at drug counseling, what are your expectations regarding these charges just to name a few. You will notice that I have not even begun to discuss the issue of the facts in the current case which is a completely separate and lengthy discussion. So really I think the question is one that you need to be asking yourself:
What am I prepared to do to fix what is going on in my life and am I willing to make an honest effort to move forward and try to prevent being in this situation again or am I just looking for a quick fix to minimize the immediate problem and leave it at that.
Often times those that are facing drug arrests have a lot more going on in their lives than what is documented in a police report and until a competent attorney can sit down with you and get a complete picture of you and what's been going on with you it's impossible to give you a price or a plan of action to move forward in the best direction for you,
You absolutely will need an attorney. With regard to the house arrest, you can be taken off until the case is resolved, however, you will need to hire an attorney to file a motion with the court or to get the solicitor to consent to removing you from house arrest. If you keep violating house arrest, you do run the risk of having you bond revoked and sitting in the county detention center until your case can be resolved.
