This is something that potentially could be negotiated for your son. However, the Blue Ridge Circuit (Cherokee County) has a felony drug court. They are more likely to desire your son to complete their program as opposed to a program outside of the court system. They are also unlikely to allow the case to be continued/delayed in order for him to complete such a program. In order to get the best result possible for your son, you should retain an attorney to negotiate for him. Call me if I can be of assistance.

That's probably an option, but there are probably several other options too. Diversion, Drug Court, a First Offender disposition, etc... and that's assuming it's a good case for the state. If it's not, then maybe he shouldn't agree to do anything and fight the case instead.
