Elko Law

I was told it could be two weeks. He got a no bail bench warrant and they say there is nothing i can do. Can they really keep him without seeing a judge for two weeks? We made several attempts to contact the judge to arrange a new time and talk to him about why he missed and never heard anything until the cops showed up to arrest him a month later.

There is no guarantee on the sentencing for either charge it only says that the state will remain silent. I am worried I will not be accepted to drug court, should I try for a better plea agreement, or will this likely be my best option?
