I am currently on ARD in Pennsylvania for 3 felony charges.

Hello. I am currently on ARD in Pennsylvania for 3 felony charges. Theft by deception, receiving stolen property, and unauthorized use of access device are my charges. The agreement was that if I paid $10,000 up front, which I did, they would let me in the ARD program...then I pay the remainder which is now down to about $10,000 over the following 24 months in probation of which end this November. I was told by a friend's mom who is a parole officer that after my max date for probation that they cannot hold me on probation after that for any reason unless I commit another crime. The reason for concern is because I am scared that I will not be able to pay the remaining money by November. My minimum monthly payment is $86. She said I could just keep paying that amount long after I'm off of probation, but I'm concerned because the deal was that I got ARD if I paid the $10,000 up front and the rest over the next 24 months. My question is: is she correct in saying that I can just keep paying the minimum payment or will I have to pay the full amount to complete the terms of my ARD?

State of Georgia. My son was on probation under first offender( possession of marijuana intent to distribute), probation for possession of marijuana(misdemeanor), and theft by taking(first offender probation) Yes three different probation with fines on all and restitution on one. He relocated to Ohio with all three probation officers awareness and court. He was suppose to report by phone and send payment in. He started out sending payments and reporting and then stopped. At this point, is it even possible that he can deal with this without going to jail or prison? It has been about two years now. Thank you

I was arrested for a 2nd degree felony accused of theft in

I was arrested for a 2nd degree felony accused of theft in October 2015..... I'm aware that I have the right to a speedy trial.My lawyers have been using pass slips for every court day since we are still waiting on full discovery and to obtain specific documents my lawyers requested from the prosecutor. My case has been through 3 District Attorneys, 3 prosecutors, and 2 judges (I assume that is the hold up on giving my lawyers whats needed).SINCE it's my lawyers filling out pass slips waiting for the state to produce records would my case be in violation of the right to a speedy and fair trial?My lawyers tell me that the longer it takes the better it is for me. For example this case is regarding my bank account dating back to 2008, the bank cant provide me any information for accounts that are older than 7 yearsALSO my case started out as a civil case in 2013 (the plaintiff dismissed his own case) that time would NOT be included in the calculation of how long my case has been pending correct?
