i have a friend who made some bad decisions about 3 yrs ago and was charged with a drug charge Shedule III. he has no priors and has not even had a speeding ticket since the date. He has been in compliance with everything the court has order including drug testing with not 1 issue. We were talking and trying to figure out what the chances of him not doing time are. The question arose as to who decides the time or punishment? Does the judge or does he go by the recommendation of the prosecuting attorney. There is already a guilty plea enterd by his attorney so his sentencing is coming up and Im trying to help him out with possible outcomes. I told him it cant be any worse than the death penalty and any better than you walk without a felony. Any input would be appreciated.
