It is not likely that he will get off for this unfortunately. The prior record makes it tough. He needs a good defense attorney who has a good relationship with the prosecutor and the judge. If there is evidence that says he was just a bystander then there might be some leniency. But while on parole the judges are not very understanding.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
