  1. This should have been handled differently from the outset. Despite the admission, there are other mitigating conditions which may make him eligible for drug court or other diversionary programs. Upon completing such conditions, he may be able to reduce his charges to a non-felony.

  2. Is he in jail for the fta or the burglary charges? If it is for the FTA then he will probably be released after CO says they won't extradite. If he is in jail on the other charges you need to hire a NV criminal attorney as soon as possible. You can comment on this answer of you have any more questions.


  3. Your son should discuss the case with NOBODY except for a Nevada criminal defense attorney. Is he still in Colorado? Is there an active warrant for return to NV?
