Hello Charlie

I am sorry to hear of this matter

Unfortunately this is a Class 1 Felony and carries a possible penalty of 5 to 99 years.

I suggest, if you have not already done so you want to at least consult with a local attorney. Maybe some type of deal can be worked out where he gets a suspended 5 year sentence.

He has an attorney ,but will not be able to retain him any longer.My son put up 10,000.00 and don' have another 20K to put up.So will have to finish w? a court appointed attorney.What do you think is chances are getting a suspended 5year sentence,w/ acourt appointed attorney....

Hello

A court appointed public defender is an attorney and so they will do their best to try to negotiate a deal.

It's possible. I cannot predict the outcome, as I am sure you know. But because it is his first offense, it would be highly possible that he would get a suspended sentence
