I pleaded no contest to this charge last week but I am appealing this charge because I am on probation in another county and if I am found guilty of this, the commonwealth will issue a show cause. My charges in the other county are domestic assault(1st offenders) and possession of marijuana (1st offenders). If I stay out of trouble, these will go away but I did receive the DIP charge that I am appealing. What is a show cause? Would I likely go to jail in the other county for a DIP? A DIP is not a big deal but it is for me because of my probation. I have complied with all other aspects of my probation. All fines are paid, the probation office has been paid, I completed all community service, and completed and paid for all classes.I did notify my probation officer as soon as I got the charge in July 2012. At the time of the charge, I wasn't doing anything. I was in the backyard ( I did not have a container or anything) when the police came into the backyard and placed me in handcuffs to "detain me for safety". The reason the police were there in the first place was because my family member was drunk and ran from the police (felony eluding). So then they came back to his residence after they already had him in custody (where I was staying the night) and saw me in the backyard and put me in handcuffs for safety and then later arrested me for DIP. The probation officer isn't worried about the DIP. She isn't trying to violate me but the commonwealth is. I am hoping to beat this charge, but if not, would could I possibly face in the other county??
