He's facing Probation/Parole Violation charges that could put him back into prison for the remaining duration of his original sentence, PLUS facing new felony charges of Felon in Possession of Firearm, which carries one or more years in prison. Lucky for him he was not arrested by the feds, because that charge carries mandatory prison sentence under federal law. When questioned, arrested or charged with any crime, the proper questions are, can any evidence obtained in a search or statement be used against you, can you be convicted, and what can you do? No amount of free 'tips and hints' from here or elsewhere are going to effectively help in a legal defense. If you don't know how to represent yourself effectively against an experienced prosecutor intending to convict, then hire an attorney who does, who will try to get a dismissal, charge reduction, diversion, programs, or other decent outcome through motions, plea bargain, or take it to trial if appropriate.
