    Very often drug charges are based on controlled buys using a confidential informant, so this is not uncommon. However, there are numerous issues related to use of CI's for controlled buys, so you should contact an experienced criminal defense attorney.

    Sean’s Answer

    Sean’s Answer

    It seems unlikely that your friend's license would be suspended in my opinion. If you were at fault for the accident then you will be liable for damages to the other party.
