Customer Question

Hi. My 25yr old nephew went to give his friend a ride. When he entered his friends house, the house was raided. Apparently the friend had been selling drugs from his home. My nephew had five dollars on him and nothing in the car. He is a very occasional pot smoker...maybe twice a year. Seriously. Police charged nephew with loitering. Instead of getting a lawyer, he spoke candidly with police. His charge was reduced down to disorderly person, 500.00 fine and tomorrow at 11am he faces the judge. He was told he'll probably get probation. I think this whole mess was b.s. If he had a lawyer he could have gotten off free. He lives in Wayne County, MI. Never in any trouble. Suggestions or opinions? Thank you in advance for your time and help. Dareen Melnyk
