This was my friends first offense on anything. My friend only had one hydrocone and 2 ADHD meds. My friend knew they had been caught and just admitted to what they had done. There was no intent to sale. Will they likely get probation?
Sounds like two counts, so it would have negotiate down to one count in order to qualify for the 251 program.
The answer is much more complex than your question. You describe 2 charges, both felonies. Sometimes, our best course of action is to negotiate down to misdemeanors but they might want some jail time for that even though the felony would guidline to "probation".
Hire a qualified attorney to help your friend through this.See question
If you are facing jail time, then you are entitled to have an attorney, but if they continue it to get an attorney, then you really need to come back with an attorney.See question

You should hire an attorney to help you avoid license suspension. You should remain drug free, enter a program, and get some clean drug tests before the Court date. Follow all of your attorney's recommendations and you will get the best possible results.See question
The officer refused my 20 year-old daughter's request for a breathalyzer test and the beer in the car was unopened and belonged to the 20 year-old driver. How can she be charged with "possession" when she was neither the driver nor owner of the ca...
Many reasons why this happens. Don't assume that the police will remember events exactly the same as your daughter. Probably not.
If they all go to court without an attorney, the court will probably offer them a community service program that equates to a guilty plea and then a dismissal if they complete certain terms. Terms may include suspension of drivers' licenses even if they weren't driving. Please consult a local attorney. This case could result in a criminal record.See question
My husband has been incarcerated since october 18th on possesion of heroin, he has court in 3 days. His lawyer told me that there are no labs that he knows of and he did a motion of discovery and has not heard from the commonwealth. What does this...
It does sound like a continuance will be needed if the lab test is not back yet. Often if the prosecution does not reply to discovery it just means that they aren't really looking at the file at all. Not yet. Sometimes that is good for the defense because the prosecution has bigger things to worry about.See question

Well, that certainly sounds like a 251 program for marijuana or other drugs. You should get an attorney and petition the Court for more time. If they only gave 6 months, then they might give you more time, but don't wait until the return date. Hire an attorney and get in there early or else you will lose the benefit of the program and end up with a conviction.See question

If this is a government job, then it may be criminal to lie. For private jobs, it just makes it more likely that they will fire you, since they will find out that they can't trust you. If you do a good job you will be hard to replace and a valuable asset to your employer no matter what you have on your background.See question
So I asked someone if i can get their "nudes". They refused but also took a screenshot. Can I get in trouble?
Yes, you can get in trouble. Child pornography is a felony and you don't know the definition so don't exchange any pictures!!See question
An officer pulled over my boyfriend for speeding. He said he was going 90 in a 70, and gave him a ticket for reckless driving. How can he reduce this charge?
90 MPH is the threshold for jail time in many counties. Hire a good attorney. If he has a good record and follows advice of counsel, he may be able to get a reduction to speeding. Some counties are tougher than others.See question

Your defense will need more than that. The police are going to prosecute the case so you should speak to an attorney. Suspended license is a serious charge.See question
