A skilled criminal defense attorney would need to discuss this matter with you & your son in greater detail, & ask both of you many questions, in order to give both of you the complete, proper legal advice you seek (& possibly a quote to represent your son). Schedule a consultation ASAP. Once the matter is resolved to your son's, & your, satisfaction, you'll be glad you paid the money to hire an attorney & properly protect your son's legal rights.

There is a chance that he will face jail time, as he has a serious felony charge pending against him. However, he should retain a good defense lawyer who very well may be able to work out a plea bargain with the State's Attorney for probation, with possible community service.
