My boyfriend recently got arrested for under the influence of a methamphetamine and possession of the same (traces in a bag). Although he is not from California, he has never been arrested in the state.

I posted bail to get him out and he has a court date of May 30th. Should he get a lawyer?

My response:

Two words: MOST DEFINATELY !!

Unless he doesn't mind spending time with my friend, Bubba, then do whatever it takes to get him a private attorney. Beg, borrow, take up a church collection, start a lemonade stand, mow lawns, deliver newspapers, turn in pop bottles, max out your credit cards, take out a bank loan, and anything else legal you can think of, but STAY AWAY from the Public Defender's office!
