My son was the driver for someone who got caught with 5 n a half ounces of meth but they weren't in the vehicle with my son when they got caught n they were in one place n my son was in another but person called my from the police car now they charging my son to trafficking n he has not ever been in any kind of trouble with the law
While it sounds like your son is offering defenses to the charge, it seems the police weren't exactly buying it since they went ahead and arrested him anyway. The stakes, then, are quite high: although your son finds himself in the lowest tier for trafficking in meth charges (assuming you are correct about 5.5 ounces), that still carries with it a mandatory minimum 10 year sentence and a $200,000 fine. So he is clearly in a good amount of trouble.
What he should be doing right now is: 1) not speaking to law enforcement or anyone who got charged along with him and 2) seeking out the absolute best attorney he can afford. It may be that he lacks the resources to pay an attorney, in which case the best attorney he can afford would be one appointed by the court, but I'm sure you understand that 10 years is a significant amount of time, so he should be doing all he can to find the best representation possible ASAP.
Follow my colleague's suggestions and help your son get an experienced defense lawyer. Such a lawyer can protect your son and his record.
