    If you are convicted of the drug abuse charges, it is possible that you will have your license suspended. But it sounds like your lawyer is working to prevent this from happening. Make sure you let your attorney know your concerns and goals, so that he/she can address them. Best of luck to you.

    I would need more information, but expungement is a possibility. I'd hire an attorney, and they can look at the facts and guide you through the process.

    As long as the prosecution has the evidence to obtain a conviction, they will still pursue the charges. Unless the victim was the only source of evidence, the prosecution will still prosecute the case.

    I would need more facts to to give you a complete answer. Your friend needs to meet with an attorney to hash out all of the details to determine the best course of action. Jail time, penalties, community service, and counseling are all possible sentences if convicted. This certainly isn't a matter to be taken lightly. An experienced attorney will greatly increase your friend's chances of a favorable outcome.

  5. Can u bring your friends to pretend to be your parents

    Absolutely NOT. You are just asking to to get yuorself in a world of trouble that you don't need. If the court was going to be lenient with you over this, and they find out that you lied, the court is likely to throw a maximum penalty at you. On top that, your friends can get into trouble as well. You need to just bite the bullet and inform your parents. It may seem terrible, but its much better than what the court will do if you get caught.

    Although a good answer is what you are looking for, myself, and the several other attorneys would need more facts to give you the answer you are looking for. If you are the "customer," I think your best course of action is to speak with an attorney in the Columbus area to discuss your situation

    Jail time is a possibility. In Ohio, you can face the same charges as the person who commited the actual offense. You need to hire an attorney or ask the court to appoint you one. An attorney will be able to put you in the best position to minimize the charges/penalties. Contact me if you need any suggestions for a good attorney in your area.

    It could be. Is she pressing charges? I would need more facts. Despite the fact that it was mutual intercourse, if you went outside of the scope of the consentual relationship, it could be a bbattery. You need to specify the events that lea to your situation to obtain a more specific answer.

    I would expect that Michigan will find your prior offense in Ohio. You should get ahold of an attorney in Michigan so that you can prepare a defense, and give yourself the best chance of obtaining a favorable outcome.

    Check your local DMV. They should be able to tell you the status of your license.
