It is impossible to evaluate your neighbor's situation without knowing more. For example, if he has a clean record, it is quite likely he would receive probationary sentence even if convicted. Other factors, such as the disposition of the judge and the DA, also matter.

The best and the only thing your neighbor should do is to confidentially consult with a defense attorney. Most lawyers will provide such consultation free of charge.
