In some situations, you can present a very specific legal question online and get a very good answer that will help you. In other situations, you simply must consult with a lawyer in your area, review all the facts and circumstances, and have that attorney provide representation. For example, I could email a mechanic and ask him how to replace a motor, but, since i am not a mechanic, my ability to use his advice is very limited. It would be better for me to hire the mechanic to fix my car. Given the value of a car and how vital it is to my family, I cannot risk having my vehicle not work. The same is true for you. You need to retain someone that is a criminal defense lawyer that can protect your rights and obtain the most favorable resolution possible. The only advice that I can generally give you is to aggressively fight the case, but such advice doesn't really help you. An experienced criminal defense lawyer knows how to aggressively fight for you. People tell me that they cannot afford a lawyer, but can you afford not to. Under my analogy, I cannot afford to pay a mechanic a few thousand dollars to fix my car, but I also need to have my vehicle, so I must pay the mechanic to fix my car. If you want to have the best opportunity to obtain the most favorable resolution, you must get a lawyer to help you.
While the law in PA is generally the same across the state, the people that administer the law in every area are different, so the same fact pattern can have different results in different areas. You should contact an experienced criminal defense lawyer in your area as that attorney knows the playing field and players involved and thereby can create the best representation strategy.
