  1. He's facing some significant time in jail on the felonies (20 year maximum on each), and since he picked up new charges while on bond for a felony, he's likely not going to get a bond for the new charges. Trespassing is a misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail, and the destruction charge may be a misdemeanor or felony.

    The individual needs a lawyer. The attorney will be in the best position to advise him on any possible sentences and discuss any available defenses to the charges.

    Good luck.
