Question: My boyfriend is 18 and was arrested yesterday for level 2 burglary,battery and Theft . he has never been in trouble. I am really scared. I dont want him to go stay in jail . what do you think will happen?

Answer: We cannot give legal advice or what we think will happen. Your boyfriend will be able to speak with an attorney, if he can't afford one, most likely the judge will appoint a public defender to him. Once the public defender talks with him, he will give him the information on whether this is a felony or misdemeanor charge, what the sentencing range is and what (if any) plea offer is made by the state.
