My fiance' was pulled over in a car that was not his and

My fiance' was pulled over in a car that was not his and because he was on parole was sent straight to state prison. He sat there for three months until his recent hearing. He was not given a green sheet( he was only able to view a portion of one the morning of his hearing after her was transported to the prison that was holding the hearing). The lawyer that he had came to me and said that my fiance' wanted to know what he should do. I found this odd because this particular lawyer said the best thing he should do would be to plead guilty because representing him before a jury would be difficult for them because my fiance' was by himself. The lawyer also said that he qualifies for ACT 122 but this lawyer did not even state that they would recommend ACT 122. Anyway, ACT 122 states that as long as no violent crime was committed then the parolee can go to a CCC center. They are trying to pin him with a drug charge. He stated that it was said that what was found in the car was so small that they were not even going to send it to the lab for it to be tested. How can my fianc'e fight all of this while being locked up in a prisonJA: Since parole regulations vary, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: PennsylvaniaJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: I've been through 3 lawyers. 2 I sent money to and they never even went to see him and the third one I just felt like she took the money and ran. No fightJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Just trying to see in what direction we can go in. Like I said has been on parole and has done very well. He has earned another degree and has been working on trying to create something to help other people who have been incarcerated.

I have recently, within the past 48 hours, had a warrant

I have recently, within the past 48 hours, had a warrant posted for my arrest in Kansas, and am on a business trip out of state. Other than contacting my lawyer, who is unavailable because it is the weekend, what would my best course of action be? I am aware that it is unlawful to board a plane with an outstanding warrant, which isn't a problem, considering that I drove to the place that I am doing business in. My main question is with regards ***** ***** the authorities in Kansas of my situation. Should I inform them that I am out of town on business, and will be back in town within 2 weeks, or should I simply wait until I am back in town to turn myself in?
