He got stoped in traffic and the police took his drugs and let him go then about a couple weeks to one month he was arrested on a what they call a round up
Depends on his record, what court, what judge... etc etc etc... not a question an online atty can answer.
I am licensed attorney who focuses on Serious DUI Cases such a 2nd DUIs, 3rd DUIs, 4th DUIs, and Felony DUIs and DMV hearings. I also have much experience handling car accident cases. Although the information I provide is helpful, it is not legal advice. Although Avvo makes it clear to consumers that attorney answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship, some attorneys prefer to add their own disclaimers to answers. You can set your custom disclaimer here and it will be automatically added to your answers. Do NOT include any direct solicitations or contact information.
It depends on several factors.
First, the amount of meth: Possession of meth for resale is a B felony (8-12 years as a Range I offender) if the amount is 0.5 grams or more of meth but a C felony (3-6 years) if the amount is less than 0.5 grams.
Second, his criminal record: Is he a Range I offender, or does he have a criminal record that makes him a higher category?
Third, the prosecutor and the strength of the case: What will the prosecutor offer him a plea to? He/she may not ask him to plead to the most serious charge for a variety of reasons. Relatedly, how strong is the case for intent to distribute? If it's not strong, he may be looking at much reduced exposure.
Fourth, the court: If he goes to trial and loses, what might the judge sentence him to? Straight time to serve? Split confinement? Straight probation?
These are some of the main questions to be answered, but they're not all of the questions. It's crucial for him to get good legal representation to get the proper questions answered with a goal of minimizing his exposure.
