I am a criminal defense attorney practicing in Nassau, Suffolk and New York City. The above information is not a substitution for a meeting whereas all potential legal issues can be discussed.
There is not sufficient information to respond to this answer.
is the individual beibg charged in Familly Court as a juvenile, in criminal court as a juvenile. youthful offender? are they under the age of 19? is it their first arrest?
these factors make enormous differences in the possible sentencing!
you should hire him a good defense attorney that would be able to walk you through this entire process...
