Additional Details
I haven't actually been given a choice to give up "resource".I have been on paper for a long time. I just made a bad decision in desperation while acting out from a relationship went sour when I found out baby not mine and she left me and our son. Not that this matters to anyone, but people keep saying I have a choice... I don't. I have noone to give up unless they want me to name the bar I was at. probably never see them again.

Your lawyer will have to persuade the prosecutors in the two counties to run them concurrent, unless they wind up consolidated (which makes the most sense to me) because they are part of the same criminal transaction.

You can't approach the judge yourself, obviously. About the only hope I see for you is to try to negotiate drug treatment in lieu of jail. Possibly in-patient. Even if it means being away from your child, the child is better off with a drug-free father once he comes home.

You need a lawyer to represent you in both counties. If you can not afford a lawyer request a public defender.

You broke laws in two counties, you will face charges in both counties. Both courts will know about all of the charges against you. I would not expect leniency. It is highly likely that your probation will be revoked and you will finish your sentence inside prison.

Sometimes bad decisions have very bad consequences!

It's a tight situation, but at least you have an option...to talk. Who do you care more for...your child's life or the person you're protecting?

If you do talk, make sure it's to a decent lawyer first.

I suggest you do whatever it takes to stay home with your kid. Otherwise what will happen to them? Foster home, life at your relatives? Basically they will be raised never knowing you because you chose an addiction over them. You have to kick it one way or another that is no life for a child. Do what you have to do even if that means turning your sources over. But whatever you do get rid of it.

Start with getting into rehab, and fast. If you haven't made any attempt to change the judge is going to come down hard on you. Second, you might want to try having a close relative (no friends obviously) take custody of your kid while you're in rehab. This will do two things; one, show the judge that you're serious about rehab and not exposing your child to hard times, and two, on the chance that you do face jail time you won't lose your kid to children services (which would make it near impossible to get him/her back).

Second, you NEED to hire a lawyer. At lease consul with one who can tell you how to address your charges. You can't go into this blind. Last, just to emphasize how important hiring a good lawyer is, the fact that you have two open cases in two different counties really, really hurts you. Though its unlikely that another county will go after you if you've already been convicted in the other. However, it does set you up if you're released from one county having the other county swoop in and convict you.

Hire a lawyer, now.

hey i'm sorry, that sux really bad... but have u ever heard of a public defender? cuz on ur court date where u plead 'guilty or not guilty' u can plead 'not guilty' and then u can ask for a public defender, if u dont have a job they're free, and they can really help u. but u cant have a job when you go in there and ask for one. i'm in trouble right now too, dont have a job, but, i have a public defender and even though some people deserve to do time for what they did, public defenders can really help you out. seriously if u mess up more than once though ur screwed. meth is bad and u should try to quit. it'll be hard- only if your around people who have it on them and are doing it. try to keep urself busy doing other things... anything! =)

You need a lawyer, and quick. From a personal standpoint, I believe it would impress the judges if you checked in to rehab and completed the rehab. Ask your lawyer.
