Description Cpsp 4th: Poss Credit Card,Indict. Count 4
If convicted of the top count your brother is facing a minimum sentence of 1 to 3 years and a maximum sentence of 2 1/3 to 7 years. Prison is not mandatory and there are other sentencing options available. His attorney may even be able to negotiate a reduction of the charges. He should be discussing this with his attorney to determine the best way to proceed. Not being a US citizen means tna there are immigration consequences as well of convicted because these would be considered crimes of moral turpitude.
He is in jail on a credit card scam or using someone else's card.
They are non-violent charges where he faces a minimum of no jail and up to 7 years if convicted of the top felony.
He also faces deportation if convicted.
