Thank you for using JustAnswer. I am JudgeLaw and I will do whatever I can to answer your question and provide excellent service.
I am sorry to hear of your dilemma. I realize how frustrating this is for you, but I believe I have information which you will find helpful.
Remember the burden of proof
is on the state and no one witnessed the accident but your son and his friend. Your son can not be compelled to testify and if his friend does not come to court there will be no one who can testify as to what actually happened.
However, because your son probably made incriminating statements to the police, you will want to get an attorney to represent him and either go to trial or see if it can be plead to something less serious and maybe get traffic school or some other disposition to keep his record relatively clean.
It is my privilege to assist you. Let me know if you need further information. I hope I have helped you beyond your expectations in the service I have provided to you. I am here for you.
