I had a disorderly conduct charge from about 20 years ago

I had a disorderly conduct charge from about 20 years ago and it had been expunged. And the horrible part was there were accusations of me saying the f word which never happened. However moving forward I was charged with child abuse and neglect by leaving my twins boys 16 months old in a car while pottying my daughter and buying a cable to get a picture for her class which is a class 6 felony. Do I need to tell my lawyer about the disorderly conduct since it was 20 years agoyears ago ?

I have been charged with domestic abuse/assault and Child

I have been charged with domestic abuse/assault and Child abuse by injury. It is false. I am obtaining a polygraph within a week. I live in a very small town. I am not from there. My wife's childhood best friend is the assistant DA over domestic issues and they want to throw me under the bus. It is actually my wife who is guilty but she called the police to protect herself and said it was me. My daughter was accidently struck by my wife when she attempted to pull us apart from a struggle over my laptop which she was trying to break out of anger. My wife was also punching me at the same time. I never hit her. I want to get the "true" story out to the public. We have employees who will testify that she has admitted to hitting me in the past and never accusing me of the same. At least one is also going to testify that 2-3 days after the incident she stated she might have been incorrect and may have actually hit me first. I want to get the "truth" out and post all of this info to include the polygraph on commercially sponsored f******* posts. I own a business and am savvy on this type of advertisement. I know I can get this info out to at least 1/4th of the county in a matter of days. I'm hoping public opinion will matter. We own a medical clinic and both of us are Nurse Practitioners. I need help bad. Is there anything illegal in doing this or do you see it as a negative action to take?

Last question, reading today's local newspaper, the Judge

Last question, reading today's local newspaper, the Judge ruled that because the defendant had been provided 5 and had fired 5 Court Appointed Attorneys, and that the last attorney was brought in from another Judicial District, he had no alternative but to allow the defendant to represent himself. He is allowing original Attorney, He was hired by defendant and because the key witness was defendants son, who was 11 at the time and because His Maternal mother could not be located was considered a Child In Need of Care, was not being allowed to testify by the Guardian Ad Litem. The Judge and Attorneys all agreed to allow the 11 year olds attorney to ask the boy if he was called to testify in Court would his testimony help or Hinder the defendants case. The 11 year old testified that it would hinder his dads case at which time original attorney and Defendant agreed to accept the plea deal of 2nd degree Murder and Child abuse. At sentencing the defendant decided to withdraw His plea and after consulting with His Client the attorney said he was withdrawing because the defendant was not thinking in best interest of all involved. Judge would not allow defendant to withdraw Plea and in January the KS Supreme Court issued that the defendant should be allowed Counsel before deciding whether to withdraw or not. Now 5 Court appointed attorneys later the defendant is still asking for legal counsel. Is he entitled another attorney and what will it do if not, will he be able to appeal again
