I'm having a bit of an issue with my case. I've been trying

Good evening,I'm having a bit of an issue with my case.I've been trying to balance what to do on my own with my case and what to have lawyers work on so recently I've been doing some filings myself.I have an appeal bond, and I filed a pro se writ of cert to SCOTUS.I hired a lawyer to file my Petition for Post Conviction Relief.I filed a motion for a new trial which was denied, but in response to that motion the Prosecutor also filed a motion to revoke my appeal bond.Her motion is ridiculous because there's no basis to revoke my bond, as my case is still on appeal, she just think that she will stop having to work on my case if I get taken into custody.In Maryland a Judge has to put in writing the reason for revoking a bond, and given there's no valid one. But I'm aware she could do it anyways so I'm wondering what my options would be in the scenario that she does in the next 1-3 days.Would I have to just file a motion to quash the bench warrant, or set date to turn myself in with another judge or motion to reinstate the bond. Wouldn't it be sanctionable conduct if she revokes my bond without a valid reason?PDFs of the motion to revoke bond and my response in opposition are attached.

My son is serving a short sentence in Travis County jail.

My son is serving a short sentence in Travis County jail. His case was dropped but he has another case pending in Williamson County. The case will be heard in September, about 4 weeks from now. The question is...is the time he is serving in Travis County right now, while he awaits his Williamson County sentence going to give him "credits" for time served when he is transferred to Williamson County. He is doing manual labor and should be earning 3 for 1 and he wants to know if these credits will be transferred between counties.Thank you

Can an attorney who is hired to represent someone for a

Can an attorney who is hired to represent someone for a misdeamor crime allowed to appear for his or her client at the next court date (client obviously appeared at arraignment after being in a holding cell and was released without bail on recognizance as it was for the lowest level misdeamor crime and likely a false accusation which should eventually receive a full dismissal) - client fears publicity on this next court date as they are a known figure. Is there any legal precedent that would allow her to make a strong argument to attorney to pay them to make appearance as nothing is being determined at this next court date beyond an agreed upon request for continuance (prosecutor has agreed for continuance) so there is nothing the defendant needs to be there to answer in person for either. However, given that a benchmark for arrest is issued for no appearance client wishes to make sure this is a legal and acceptable request for lawyer to make, and how can attorney make this request in a way most certaint to get prosecutor to agree?
