Q: My son sold drugs to a under cover cop what can he get for that he is a addict and was selling them to get them for hims
A: The courts and police are very familiar with the circumstances that User-Dealers find themselves in. They buy drugs from their dealers, sometimes they are fronted the drugs, then they sell to support their habit. The unfortunate issue is that they are still dealing drugs and they are still apart of the problem. They are helping and hurting other addicts. The best thing your son can do at this point is get into a treatment program and prove that he is an addict and trying hard not to be a part of the cycle.
To answer your exact question though more information is required, what was the drug? how much did he sell? how many times did he sell? how much money and drugs were found on him when he was arrested? What is his record like? A small amount of meth, first time offender, can receive from 1 to 6 years jail for trafficking and up to $20,000 in fines.
