Please tell me what state your friend has the charges and is fleeing, so I can accurately assist you.

Geez. It sounds like he got a great break with that deal. It is unfortunate that he fled. The deal would not still be on the table - though he could get a good attorney and try to re-neogiate it. The fleeing has made him a fugitive from justice, which is a felony and could get him 5 to 15 years.
I suggest, he might want to contact a Florida attorney to discuss the matter and see what can be worked out if he surrenders on the warrant.
Best to you both,
If my answer has been helpful, please ACCEPT my answer so I get credit for my effort to help you . If I can be of further help, let me know. Appropriate FEEDBACK is appreciated as is a bonus. Thanks ~ Michelle
You are welcome - keep in mind, that the warrant will be active until otherwise recalled by the issuing court.
