My son was arrested with drugs and some garbage jewelry I should have thrown out years ago. But he had my copy of elderly aunt's keys labeled "Anna's back door".He went to her first, she had identified them . My thief sister wants her assets, asking court for guardianship - says she is unsafe b/c he has stolen from her. My son having keys will prove it. I told cops he took it & explained why I won't press charges.Cop said no, he was, said my son told him he took stuff from his mother, and said he'll return it next day. My aunt will never press charges Can he or the ADA file these charges? Even If I say I gave it to him?

If your son was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of stolen property, your first priority should be obtaining representation for him and not speculating on what the DA may or may not do. What your son says (or doesn't say) to the police is far more important than his relationship with his aunt and grandmother.
