  1. This sounds like a question for a local criminal defense attorney. You should change the category.


  2. Your friend needs to consult ASAP with an experienced criminal lawyer. Not enough facts are presented here to make any recommendation but the obvious one, hire a lawyer and get advice after explaining all the facts concerning the situation.


  3. Your friend is going to have to hire an attorney to guide them through this process. Use the Avvo Find-a-Lawyer feature to identify someone in your area. I also suggest you re-post your question in the criminal defense area of Avvo as someone local might be online

  5. Your friend would want to retain a criminal lawyer who can orchestrate the turning her in process easier.


  6. It depends on the actual violation that is charged. You can see the levels below at the link.
