    If they have filed a juvenile petition through juvenile court, they only have jurisdiciton over him until he is 18. So, he could get from probation to incarceration until he is 18. If he is close to 18, they will probably wait and charge him as an adult. It is a class 4 felony if they go with the Burg 3 charge. Then, he will be elligible for probation, which could be for up to 3 years, or he could get prison from 1 to 3.75 years.

    If it was a first time offense and it was a personal use amount, a none. It's what is called a propostion 200 offense and he gets treatment and probation. If it is a second or third offense he could be sentenced to jail (a year on each count) or go to prison for 3 to 12.5 years.

    If it was more than 9 grams, it's mandator prison 3 to 12.5. If under, you could get probation. But, if the offenses occurred on a seperate occassion, they could increase the sentence higher.

    It depends. If they are non-dangerous first time offenses, the range of sentencing is 3 to 12.5 years. But, the offenses are probation available, unless they allege them as multiple offenses on a seperate occassion. Then the second and subsequent charges are prison mandatory at 3 to 12.5 on the second and 4.5 to 23.1 on the third.

    Yes. As long as the continuance is not for the purpose of delaying, the judge is likely to grant it. Especially with a criminal settlement conference, it's normally in the interest of judicial economy to allow more time to prepare for a settlement conference.

    You absolutely need to call his attorney. The State could've also dismissed without prejudice to add charges or reinidict. If so, it will show as dismissed on the court website. But, knew charges could already be in place. Your husband's attorney is in the best position to look into this for.
