Friends daughter was arrested for being under the influence

Friends daughter was arrested for being under the influence (drunk driving), carrying a concealed weapon (a switchblade, I assume lockable in its open position), brandishing the weapon, and then threatening the guys who were apparently harassing her.Have read on the internet that her emotional reasons for at least two of these allegations matter to a jury.But we'd like to know what happens at the "pre-trial" and what are her options? Also is there any chance she will be let go with a warning? Somehow, we doubt this, but are the charges likely to be limited to misdemeanors?Any other advice besides hire an attorney sooner rather than latter so that there's time to talk things over with the prosecutor to hopefully reach some sort of an agreement prior to trial?

Im a distraught mother of a daughter who was arrested when

Im a distraught mother of a daughter who was arrested when her boyfriend and her were pulled over while he was driving. He was speeding. She is a beautiful 23 yr old girl who met the wrong man 2 yrs. ago. He has 2 priors for selling. 1 for marijuana the other I think for heroin. He let her take this current charge. I asked him why, he said the cop asked whose it was she said hers to keep him out of prison she told me now. A decision she knows was very bad. He never even spoke up to say it wasn't hers. She had no drug charges no criminal history prior to meeting him. She caught a paraphenelia charge last year now sale of meth due to this coward. Im going to try to get her a private attorney. Pray the judge can drop it to a 11377. Any thoughts?JA: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: CaliforniaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Initially only he had all charges when they were in the local jail, then the charges they shared, except he still had sales. Next thing I know she has all the chargesJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: At last weeks court date he only got a violation of felony probation. She even received a driving without a license. She wasn't driving he was and had no license. What if I get him to confess on audio. My daughter has not been tried has not went into plea. What kills me is she would text me every night saying mom I want out of this relationship, I want to go to in house drug treatment. She just wanted him to be on board. He never will be his dad is his problem and supplier. Chelsie my daughter comes from strong supportive family.

Second opinion] I have been off of federal probation for

Second opinion] I have been off of federal probation for about 4 years now in Forida. I am supposed to be paying approximately $100 per month federal restitution for a wire fraud case that I served 37 months for and completed in 2008. I owe about $200,000+I was behind on payments this year and I am wondering is I must fill out the financial statements that the US attorney sends me. What can happen to me if I do not respond but just continue to make timely payments? They left me a voicemail that they can put in a motion to the judge. The victim is calling the US ATTORNEY REGULARLY TO PUSH THE ISSUE. Please let me know. thank you.

I did a hit and run and caused a huge accident. I hit a truck and it swerved off-road hitting a power pole. The pole felt down on his truck but that driver did not get injured.I got really scared and ran away from the scene for a few miles. I ended up calling the cops on myself telling them what happened. Furthermore, I told the cops it was my very first accident and didn't know what to do. I wasn't on drugs or alcohol or anything. One of the officer told me I will be cited for hit and run. The district attorney will charged me later.My question is what will be the chances I have to face prison? Or will I just have to pay fines and face probations?
