My question involves criminal law for the state of: NJ
My friend and two of his friends went to pick up drugs from a drug dealer. The drug dealer got inside the car and pullled a knife on my friend demanding the money. They didn't give up the money and the beat the kid up inside the car and then threw him out. A witness placed a 911 call saying she saw a fight in a car that's it. The kid went to police station and filed a report saying my friend took drugs he was going to sell to him? How is he not getting in any trouble? He also stated they took his wallet? Which they never took anything from the kid. I am just wondering if his charged is going to be downgraded with a plea bargin? He is sitting in jail with a first degree robbery charg. He got a exspensive lawyer. His two other friends didn't get caught the victim couldn't identify them and my friend isn't giving up the names? My question is does he have a good chance in court?
