    You need to consult very quickly with an immigration attorney and a criminal defense attorney to determine whether you need to modify your sentence, which will depend on how your exact charge and how your sentence reads. Ideally, you would have addressed this concern with your attorney before entering your plea. As you apparently did not, you need to act quickly to have multiple options available in case you need to withdraw your plea and/or modify your sentence. You can contact me at (404)...

    You may have multiple options of post-conviction relief available for you to pursue. Time constraints are strictly enforced in federal court. You should consult with an attorney as soon as possible if you can afford to retain private counsel. Alternatively, you can pursue a pros se (on your own) habeas corpus petition under 28 USC 2255.

    You should retain an attorney who would then attempt to get the charges dismissed. While it is possible that the district attorney may dismiss the charges based upon your providing your other son's prescription bottle, it is more likely that it will take more than just that, that there may be more to the story than you know of, and/or that your attempts to help could somehow make things worse down the road. Your safest bet is to hire experienced counsel to handle this.

    Typically you would be charged with a misdemeanor, which can carry up to 12 months in custody. It would be out of the ordinary for someone with no record to receive jail time on a first misdemeanor offense, however, you should consult with an attorney as you would like to avoid a conviction if at all possible and certainly want to ensure you resolve your case favorably. If you cannot afford an attorney, contact the local public defender's office or request an appointed attorney from the court.

    You will need to consult with an attorney to provide much more detail before it can be determined whether any options are available and what those options are. The short answer is that it may be possible.

    Your question is a bit confusing and/or you may need to provide more detail in order for it to be adequately answered. If you or your company are under federal investigation, however, than you should immediately consult with a criminal defense attorney. Neither you nor your company has access to the grand jury except through the prosecutor (the U.S. Attorney's Office) and you do not want to have any contact with the prosecutor if you are under investigation except through your attorney. If I...

    If your brother has been arrested, he has been already been charged with something. Typically the U.S. Attorney's office moves fairly quickly to indict or obtains a complaint prior to indictment. Your brother should already have an attorney that he has retained or that has been appointed to him. You should discuss this your question with your brother's attorney. In the alternative, in your order to better answer your question, you are welcome to contact me so I can get more detail from you...
