Your nephew will be charged with burglary of a residence which is a very serious charge. If he has a prior felony he will not be offered a reduced plea and will have a mandatory prison sentence. He is not eligible for most drug programs ans will probably serve 3 tears or more in a state prison. You should help him to address his drug problem and explain to him that being a burglar, drug dealer, or thief is not a good decision and will result in prison, overdose, or death. When young people get addicted to crack, heroin, or meth they will do anything to get their drugs, and that usually means stealing or dealing which are both very dangerous. The only thing you can do is to get him a good lawyer and visit him in prison and let him know that he can turn his life around if he goes straight, gets clean, and gets a career.

If he has a long record and just got out of prison probably this will cause him to go back to prison.?He may be on parole. If he is on parole in Michigan any sentence that he serves will be CONSECUTIVE to anything he gets for the parole violation of picking up another charge.

If this was in Illinois, he would be facing a mandatory minimum four year prison term for residential burglary, as that is the applicable charge when breaking into a house. With a significant background, he will be facing more time, perhaps even an extended term, up to 14 years.
