She sold to an undercover, spent a year in jail, plea bargain is three years , can she get a better offer, first time offense!!!
That sounds like trafficking. If that's the case, the "level" and therefore amount of time is based on the amount of the controlled substance.
In fact, prior record, or lack thereof, is not part of the consideration.

Either way, it sounds like a serious case. Your friend should retain legal counsel immediately.
Good question. Thanks for your inquiry!

Under charges It listed the same thing 3 different times. Then under that it has sentencing with 3 different references. Like if the person has 3 different charges. Can you explain what this is
Yes it's possible, but somewhat confusing.
Normally that is associated with having multiple counts on a single citation.
The better practice is to assign different case numbers to each individual charge and/or count.
Makes sense to talk to a lawyer though and confirm that is correct.

I petitioned for removal from the sex offender registry and evidently my case is so complex that the judge has taken it under advisement? Is there a timeline that I could expect him to have a decision by? Is this a good thing? Is there anything I ...
Not really. I explain to clients "taking under advisement" basically means, "I want to think about it some more."
Legal issues are often complicated. Giving additional thought and consideration to an important, potentially life-changing issue is a good thing.

That's a tough situation. Probation Officers possess a TREMENDOUS amount of discretion in enforcing the Court's Judgment.

If you don't already have an attorney, you need to speak to someone ASAP.
Interlock violations are taken seriously in NC by DMV and can have LONG-LASTING consequences.

He had an extradition hearing about being held in new hanover county nc pending extradition to polk county florida
That's a NOTORIOUSLY complicated area of law in North Carolina.
A lot depends on whether someone "waives" extradition. Determining the most appropriate manner in which to proceed normally requires a careful consideration of the factual history of the case(s).

Talk with an attorney in Wake County. Sometimes lawyers can handle things "i absentia" or in the absence of having a client appear. Each jurisdiction has their own policies and protocols on that type of thing.

John Fanney is both a friend and excellent attorney in Wake County. You may want to give him a ring. Please say "hey" if you talk to him.
Good question. Best of luck to you.
