I found out Last night that my friend is being charged with PC M273A(B) willful cruelty to a child (hes 3) and felony maintaining a house to sell a controlled substance. What does this mean and where would her son be? I have never seen her even yell at him so are the charges because of the drug house? Does that mean she knew they were selling drug?

It "means" multiple felony charges with prison time upon conviction, and probably immediate loss of child custody to Social Services. She needs to hire an attorney. If she is serious about hiring counsel to help in the criminal and custody defense, and if this is in SoCal courts, feel free to contact me.
Mr. Nelson's answer is right on and I agree with it completely. Basically this means "your friend" is in a lot of trouble and they need an attorney immediately. There is no way to answer your other questions without speculating as to the facts. This is not the place to provide the facts and this is not proper forum to get specific. Stop wasting time and start shopping for a criminal attorney. If you have any questions feel free to contact our office.
