My nephew has been charged with supplying drugs and the search

Customer Question

My nephew has been charged with supplying drugs and the search found cannabis and 1400 tablets of valium. He does not have any money for a solicitor and was trying to supplement his income stupidly. Who will represent him and is it likely to get a prison sentance?

Is he on remand?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hi Jo, not sure what that means sorry. He was arrested and house searched and kept in police station for 20 hours and then released to return for trial later this month.
Expert:  Remus2004 replied 1 year ago.
Is he going back to the police station or to court?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Sorry, I have just realised that he is in Scotland and the legal aid rules are slightly different.
I will move this to Scots law for you.
