I have a friend who has been to court once charged I believe with possession of drugs, 5 g of methamphetamine on the 16/12/2015. She is now in jail until the 3/2/2016 for sentencing. She is Korean; her English is not great. Is this normal? Also is it possible to get her released on bail? I've even heard of people with similar offences being able to just visit a police station once a day for a check in until there's a sentencing date. I just believe this seems to be extreme considering it's her first offence. Any answers relating to Criminal Law would be fantastic or a guide to what can be done.
