My friend is being charged with charges for drug periphenelia which was in possesion of his friend. The problem is that his friend had no I.D and therefore gave a fake name. Now he is being charged for every thing since he was the driver. His vehicle was impounded after an unlawful search. What will be the cosequences of this? If in prisoned, how long?

Make sure you or he hires counsel (or at least the public defender) to try to keep this off the record eventually--jail time is probably not likely if his record is clear now. But having that arrest and/or a conviction on the record will make job-hunting etc. more difficult. Often this could be negotiated down to some kind of court supervision etc. If it eventually appears it cannot be negotiated down, or he (or you) needs to discuss this in more detail with senior counsel to review options etc., please let us know...
