How old is he? Is he in school and in good standing? Working full time


Without any other trouble?

Assuming he doesn’t have any other red flags I would expect the punishment to be fairly lenient. I would emphasize doing anything possible to work towards dismissal and expungement. Maybe throw in some voluntary community service during the probationary period.

I made the mistake of pleading guilty to the juvenile version of a dui in high school bc I just wanted the ordeal to be over. The judge probably would’ve thrown out the charge after fulfilling his demands. Disclosing the plea cost me a seasonal job even after 4 years at uva with no additional trouble.

I’d be tempted to just show up in court as a friendly reminder that he’s not as slick as he thinks he is but it’s probably better to interject yourself sooner to make sure he goes through the process the right way. It’s a relatively stupid and minor charge but as I said above it may have further impact that he and you might not have thought about.
