What is your question?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
what do you think he will be facing and with the witness talking to the boy involved with him does that make a diffrence
Expert:  romlawyer replied 8 years ago.

He is facing serious time because burglary is a felony, and he will have to do time on the probation violations.

I would talk with his lawyer about his options, and what the guideline sentences are.

The fact that the witness is talking to a co defendant is not per se an issue, but your son's attorney maybe able to use this to your son's advantage if there is a trial.
