My Public Defender tried for a 546 and the arresting officer refused, so we waived the preliminary hearing. My PD said we could now try for a 586. Is this why I have a "NOTICE OF ARRAIGNMENT" scheduled in the COURT OF COMMON PLEAS or do I need another appointment to pursue a 586? I refused ARD because I don't have the $1200 - $1500 my PD says it will cost and I thought the trial would be cheaper, however answers to my AVVO question "How do I predetermine court costs?" indicate otherwise. What happens if I can't pay for ARD or court costs? What will a 586 cost me? Will a 586 wipe my record clean of all charges and the arrest?
