There is no first offender type resolution in federal court.
Please contact a criminal defense lawyer who is experienced handling drug charges in Federal court. There are many important differences between the State and Federal system. You need a lawyer aware of those differences.
It is still possible to get a bond. He may be having a detention hearing as early as this morning.
Wether he will get a bond will be up to the judge. The judge will make that decision based on a variety of factors, including his connections to the Atlanta area, his prior criminal history, and the nature of the current charge.See question

I can't tell from your question when your son was arrested. If it was recently, I want to make sure that your son understands that the only person he can talk to about these allegations is his lawyer. If you speak to him make sure he knows that.
The prior false allegations of the accuser will be very important in your son's case. They can be used to try to prove that the accuser is a liar and is willing to lie about these kinds of allegations. Your son's lawyer must investigate these prior claims to prove they were made and to prove they were false.
I can't understand the last part of your question.
If you can afford to hire a lawyer you need to hire a lawyer that has the experience and skill necessary to handle an allegation like this.
Allegations of rape are very dangerous. The punishment is severe. Moreover, these kinds of allegations are frequently prosecuted without any eveidence other than the claims of the accuser.See question

No lawyer could answer this question without doing a thorough review of the case. Please reach out to your lawyer and ask her/him to walk you through the case. How it would be prosecuted. How it would be defended. Why you lawyer thinks you would be convicted. If you are not satisfied, you need to reach out to a lawyer experienced in handling child molestation cases. You may need to do this quickly. If the case is scheduled to go to trial soon, a new lawyer may not have enough time to come in and get the case ready.See question
I was charged with transaction card fraud in 1998. I was sentenced under the first offenders.
Because of the age of the first offender plea it will not automatically come off your criminal history. You need to follow the procedure for having the plea removed from your criminal history. You can also file a motion ask the court to seal other records (clerk's file, sheriff, police) as well. I encourage you to contact a lawyer experienced in these matters.See question

There is no magic answer here. All any lawyer can do for you is the best they possibly can. No lawyer can guarantee any particular result. Can another lawyer get a better result for you? Possibly, but there is no way to know. You should meet with an experienced criminal defense lawyer and then decide if you want to hire that to try to improve your situation.See question

It is not against the law for a 20 year old to have sex with a 16 year old. If you had sex with him when you were 15 or younger that was a crime. If that is the case, he should contact a criminal defense lawyer for advice.See question

3rd: yes - Because you entered a plea under the first offender act. You do not have a conviction but you did enter a plea. The school can't see the first offender on an official criminal history. However, they can likely get the information through a private background check company. There are steps you can take to try to remove that information from the databases maintained by the private background check companies. You would need to hire an experienced criminal defense lawyer to file a motion to seal the county clerk's file. If you are successful in getting the clerk's file sealed, then you can seek to have the information removed from the databases maintained by the private background check companies under the theory that they are unable to verify the information now that the clerk's file is sealed.

Your official criminal history has been restricted from public access. However, the private background check companies pulled the information on your case when it was still public. Even though your official criminal history has been restricted those companies already had the info. There is also a separate source of information. The county clerk's files. You are likely eligible have those sealed as well. You need to hire a lawyer to file a motion to seal the clerk's file. If you are successful in getting the clerk's file sealed, you may be able to force the private background check companies to remove the information from their database.See question
