Yes it possible that the individual could get diversion., it's also possible the matter could be dismissed or the individual could be found not guilty after a jury trial. It's also possible that the individual will be convicted of felony drug sales and spend time in custody. Much will depend on the specific facts of the case, the particular DA and Judge on the case, any proof problems, the individual's background, and the individual's attorney. The individual is best advised to hire the best attorney he/she can afford. As to whether this will affect a CPA licensure, the individual should tell the attorney that he/she wants to pass the moral turpitude/background component of the CPA exam. With that information and goal in mind, the attorney can proceed accordingly. Best of luck
Difficult but not impossible and it's unlikely to happen if your friend defends himself. In addition, it is unlikely to happen in one court hearing so be patient and let the attorney work it through.
The response above is not intended as legal advice since it’s impracticable to provide thorough, accurate advice based upon the query without additional details. It is highly recommended that one should seek advice from a criminal defense attorney licensed in your jurisdiction by setting up a confidential meeting. Moreover, this response does not constitute the creation of an attorney-client relationship since this message is not a confidential communication because it was posted on a public website, thereby publicly disclosing the information, which is another reason to setup a confidential meeting with an attorney.
