POSSESSION OF A CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE AND PALAPHINILLA
If he is charged with simple posession, it is likely that this might be adjudicated into some kind of diversion program. If he is charged with possession with intent to distribute, he is facing about 3 years in prison, roughly speaking. Paraphernalia is a misdemeanor, and it might be dismissed or just charged as a fine depending on the posession charge. The main charge he has to worry about is the posession charge.What he has to do is to call a bail bond agency and see if the warrants he has are quashable. If they ARE, all he has to do is to put down a bond like he did before the first time and get another court date. If neither or both are not quashable, he has to pre-arrange a bond with a bail agency, then call or have his attorney call the ADA and arrange a walk in with a pre-set bond (hopefully) where he would walk into a police station, be processed, but be bonded out almost within 4-10 hours by the bail agency that was standing by and get a court date for the charges. Let me know if you need help finding an affordable attorney in your area.

Best of luck in your matter. I'm here if you need any more clarification or follow up information.
