Thank you for your response.
I am sorry to hear about his previous record for thefts that they are charging together. This makes his case very difficult for his defense attorney
. Putting him in rehab without a court order or plea deal for rehab I am afraid would not really help him with avoiding jail in these cases given the history of failed rehab attempts in the past.
You would need to get his attorney to negotiate with the prosecutor's office and the court for rehab as part of a sentence involving probation
. If he has no prior convictions and these are the only 5 pending cases against him, because they are charging them together in one case, his attorney can get a first offender sentence negotiated, just going to be difficult because of the 5 charges, and because of his drug habit the court could agree that drug rehab would be part of his probation, but if he fails to complete it the court is not likely to accept any excuses and will put him in jail for the charges in most cases.
