I'm currently facing cocaine possession charges, but it was

I'm currently facing cocaine possession charges, but it was inside a backpack that wasn't mine, inside my car. The backpack was in the passenger seat. The car is mine. No one else was in the vehicle at the time of arrest, although people were in and out of my car a lot during a vacation. Should I fight these charges and plea not guilty, or take a 15day plea bargain?

I did a plea bargain so not to be sentenced for 25 to life

I did a plea bargain so not to be sentenced for 25 to life as I was told. Unfortunately I did 9 years for 290 case. I have a woman that I have become involved with with permission from parole that knows everything about me. Her neighbors looked me up and found out about my past and turned me into parole by calling the local authorities, even though I had been given permission, but it was to not be in the house if girlfriends son came in house. He would come and go to the bathroom then run outside again. I did not go out every time he came in and neighbors turned me in because of the well being of the child. I was violated and I am now being told that I cannot see her at ALL and must break it off with her, but we are engaged. I understand I don't have any rights while on parole, but isn't this a breach of her civil rights? Can anything be done at all? I love her and want to marry her.

What are my options after the following happening to me....

What are my options after the following happening to me....My lawyer quits on me the night before Sentencing(I have the text he sent proving it). He then shows up in court the next morning trying to speak to me but I ignore him. He goes into the judges chambers with the ADA and he comes out saying if I let him continue as my lawyer the judge will give me 11.5-23 months house arrest, and I'll be let off after 6 months for good behavior. I only agreed to let him continue and take house arrest because I was afraid the judge would take it out on me for not having a lawyer that day. The judge hands down the sentence with " no chance at early termination." I have concrete proof that will not go away that he said I was done after 6 months. What are the consequences for a lawyer making such false promises? I'd like to add that this particular Sentencing date was a month and a half after my previous one. We were giving a continuance so he could file a motion he missed the deadline for. I have proof he quit on me a week before that Sentencing as well. So I spent another month and a half on pretrial house arrest that I wasn't be given credit for.

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 facebook 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?
