Do you have a chance with no jail time if felon facing 1stDegree Recklessly Endangering Safety and Possess of firearm

Chances of less than 10 years in jail - fairly good. Chances of getting house arrest - virtually zero. You do not get to choose whether charges are filed against this young man. Only the DA can determine whether or not someone gets charged, and whether the prosecution should simply move to dismiss (which is not likely to happen in a gun case wherein someone was shot by a previously-convicted felon.).

If this happened in Milwaukee, the DA will take this sort of situation very seriously. I have had a case like this and the client plead guilty to felony in possession of a firearm only, and received 2.5 years in prison. The Reckless Injury charge was dismissed. However, every case is different and the DA will attempt to convict on that.
He should get in touch with a lawyer ASAP.
