I recently met up with a guy at a party who got me screwed

I recently met up with a guy at a party who got me screwed up on crystal meth. He told me he knew how to cook it and that we should go get the stuff to make it. We did, and I paid for some of the things that he used. He is now, for the lack of a better term, blackmailing me to buy more precursors, food and cigarettes. He has been feeding me this elaborate story of someone trying to set him up. He told me to bring him something just a little while ago, then once I was home texted me to tell me that I shouldn't have brought that, the police will go through his dumpster and he will be arrested on precursor possession charges and that I need to be prepared to go post a very large bond. What can I do? I know I am in a legal pickle right now.

I'm currently facing cocaine possession charges, but it was

I'm currently facing cocaine possession charges, but it was inside a backpack that wasn't mine, inside my car. The backpack was in the passenger seat. The car is mine. No one else was in the vehicle at the time of arrest, although people were in and out of my car a lot during a vacation. Should I fight these charges and plea not guilty, or take a 15day plea bargain?

I did a plea bargain so not to be sentenced for 25 to life

I did a plea bargain so not to be sentenced for 25 to life as I was told. Unfortunately I did 9 years for 290 case. I have a woman that I have become involved with with permission from parole that knows everything about me. Her neighbors looked me up and found out about my past and turned me into parole by calling the local authorities, even though I had been given permission, but it was to not be in the house if girlfriends son came in house. He would come and go to the bathroom then run outside again. I did not go out every time he came in and neighbors turned me in because of the well being of the child. I was violated and I am now being told that I cannot see her at ALL and must break it off with her, but we are engaged. I understand I don't have any rights while on parole, but isn't this a breach of her civil rights? Can anything be done at all? I love her and want to marry her.
