First and foremost if your nephew did nothing illegal, there is nothing to freak out about. His attorney, either one he has hired already, or the one who will be appointed by the court at his hearing if he cannot afford one, will gather all the evidence and put on his defense based on what you have said. In fact, if the facts are as you have relayed them and your nephew did not illegally use or possess your prescription, then his criminal
defense attorney may be able to convince the prosecutor to drop the case altogether.
He should not make any statement about the facts of the case to anyone other than his attorney.
