    Answered . Your grandson is in a tough place. Do not know who he ended up with the charges, although if the car was stopped while on the way from the offenses and he was in it, that would make sense. He definitely needs a lawyer who can fight for him, and listen to the reality of the evidence and review the report and claims with him.
