When charged with a felony, you potentially face one or more years in prison if convicted, on a misdemeanor, up to 6-12 months in jail on each count. If you have priors, they are enhancements under the 3 Strikes rules. If this constitutes a probation violation, factor that new charge in as well. No insult intended, but I assume you know that there is no magic wand to make this go away. Courts arent likely to give additional repeat diversion opportunity again. You face some serious consequences here. When arrested and charged with any crime, the proper questions are, can any evidence obtained in a search be used against you, and can you be convicted, and what can you do? Raise all possible defenses with whatever admissible and credible witnesses, evidence and facts are available for legal arguments for evidence suppression or other motions, or at trial. Effective plea-bargaining, using those defenses, could possibly keep you out of jail, or at least dramatically reduce it.
If you don't know how to do these things effectively, then hire an attorney that does, who will try to get a dismissal, diversion, reduction or other decent outcome through plea bargain for you, or take it to trial. If serious about doing so, and if this is in SoCal courts, feel free to contact me. Ill be happy to help you use whatever defenses you may have.
