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.
