My question involves criminal law for the state of: California
My boyfriends house was raided 7 months ago when sheriffs were looking
for his brother, and during the raid they picked up 30 ecstasy pills in their
room and all their information (I.ds, paperwork etc.)
His brother has another case altogether, which my boyfriend got pulled into.
So now 7 months later, when they can't prove he has anything to do with his
brothers problem, they're trying to charge him with the pills they found.
When the police took everything they did they told him they wouldn't charge him
with the pills as long as he didn't file a motion to get everything back.
So my question is: Its his first offense like this, 3 guys share that room ( they weren't his)
and it was a personal stash, definitely not to be sold. Could the charges be dropped
to just possession (vs. Intent to sell) and would he be eligible for a diversion program?
And lastfully....what would be the max sentence? /:
