Indictment for trafikking cocaine

Ask a Lawyerwhat's this?


Country: United States of America
State: Ohio

My boyfriend was indicted with Complicity to commit trafficking of crack cocaine (felony 3). His uncle is the co-defendant whom was indicted with the Trafficking. He simply was giving his uncle a ride home, and was caught up in the bust. He has no priors, and was given an extremely large bond 75,000. He has been in custody for two weeks & the next court date is December 21st. What can he do?


Make sure you get counsel (or at least the public defender) to try to keep this off the record eventually--jail time is probably not likely if his record is clear now. But having that arrest and/or a conviction on the record will make job-hunting etc. more difficult. Often this could be negotiated down to a dismissal or some kind of court supervision etc.
