Very likely. A great deal will depend on all of the facts and his attorney. Good luck.

The response above is not intended as legal advice since it’s impracticable to provide thorough, accurate advice based upon the query without additional details. It is highly recommended that one should seek advice from a criminal defense attorney licensed in your jurisdiction by setting up a confidential meeting. Moreover, this response does not constitute the creation of an attorney-client relationship since this message is not a confidential communication because it was posted on a public website, thereby publicly disclosing the information, which is another reason to setup a confidential meeting with an attorney.


Jail is a distinct possibility. Hard core- that depends. He really needs an attorney to deal with his case and try to minimize the consequences.



Your friend has serious problems and needs a good attorney. help him get one, fast. the fact that he pays taxes won't matter. If he didn't pay taxes, that's a separate charge.

No legal advice is given here. My responses to questions on Avvo are never intended as legal advice and must NOT be relied upon as if they were legal advice. I give legal advice ONLY in the course of a formal attorney-client relationship. Exchange of information through Avvo's Questions & Answers forum does not establish an attorney-client relationship with me. That relationship is established only by joint execution of a written agreement for legal services. I am only licensed in the States of California and New York and the District of Columbia


Your friend needs a good attorney to explore his defenses and potential motion issues. Be very wary of any attorney willing to accept 'shrooms as payment, though. Any time there is a search of someone's home, there might be Fourth Amendment protections that could get the evidence thrown out. Contact some attorneys privately for more information.



You are joking about the taking shrooms for payment right? I don't know or even try shrooms. I'm sure the cops took all he had but I would never even think about something like that. He is still sitting in jail on a 150,000$ bond his family and myself have come up with around 10K for representation maybe more if needed but can't afford to get him out of jail. Man seriously lawyers don't take shrooms do they? They shouldn't if they want to win cases but who knows maybe the DA and judges are eating shrooms too. That's why are judicial system is so messed up everyone is tripping on the shrooms they confiscate. IDK

I was joking, but I'm sure it has happened. You've got some great and talented attorneys up in Northern California. Start consulting with some attorneys and find one he's comfortable with. One of the first steps should be a motion to reduce bail. Hopefully if that amount comes down, he'll also be able to get out of custody while preparing for trial.
