A: I would really need more information. It depends a lot on if there is any evidence he had knowledge or if he maybe did or said something after. It also depends with his co defendant says. He needs to get an attorney and get help as this is a serious charge. I offer a free consultation if you want to contact me with more detail so I can advise better.

A: It depends on the evidence. Your son should consult an attorney who can review the discovery from the prosecution to see what evidence they currently have.

A: Like everyone else said, "It depends." It's time to offer less facts online and start calling local attorneys for a consult.
