So my best friend is facing possible jail time and I don't know what to do. Does anyone have advice on how to cope with this?

I've never been through this before. But I can say that the best way to cope is to keep constant contact with your friend. Also, give them all the support you can,because that alone can change both of you, and also help you stay closer.

I talked to one of the cops me and him hangout with, and he said there's a good chance he will just get a warning or probo since he has a clean record. I guess we'll find out after he gets questioned today.

Well, uh. Turns out he's going to jail as far as I know. Thanks to the people that snitch on us. I am thoroughly scared and terrified, so yeah.

Wait, Morgan and Adrian just called me. They got let off with a warning, thank god. However they do have to write a letter and they are banned from the property.

At least it's only a warning. He's still a minor, right?

Then it's not too bad, depending on the charge.... They've just got to be careful out there. It's a big world, and I know from experience that it's too easy to get hurt by anyone, even a close family member or friend. I mean, usually I just wouldn't friend anyone, (nothing against you, of course), but I think you're actually a great and honest person, otherwise I wouldn't of given you my email.

Hey so sorry about your situation, that must be awful. Honestly if your friend does end up needing to serve time, the best thing you can do is go visit or write letters. Keep him/her in your thoughts and tell yourself he/she is still your best friend and they'll see you soon. Remember to stay strong, you can push through this

They would've gone to jail on Arson charges, for dropping a match in some starter fluid on accident. Luckily they got off with a warning and they're banned from the church property. *note* no one was hurt and no property was damaged at all.
