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?

My son has an outstanding warrant in Oakland County. He is

My son has an outstanding warrant in Oakland County. He is currently in the Eaton County jail, and will be until around February. He thought he had completed all of the requirements for Oakland County, but the warrant is for probation violation - failure to appear (there are two cases, one for MIP, one for marijuana, and they are from 2013) I've contacted the court and asked if he can do a plea by mail. If he doesn't get the Oakland county matter worked out, he will not be able to get into the programs that he needs in Eaton County (cognitive thinking, AA, etc.) i am not sure what to put on the form as far as what he is pleading to. Also, does he send it to the court and they send it back with an amount of $ or time? Thank you!JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when was the warrant issued?Customer: Michigan. The warrant was issued 5/12/15. We only found out about it when the Secretary of State suspended his license.JA: Have you talked to a laywer yet?Customer: I've emailed his lawyer, but I'm not getting any response.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: He's not as bad as he sounds! :)
