    If you are going to get beat up for not having all of the money, even though you have some of it, how about taking what you do have to the nearest casino and trying to win the difference. I'd suggest a high limit blackjack or craps table but only if you know how to play the games properly.

      you have already violated your parole.

      You knew your lecture you got when you got on parole - avoid people who use/deal/are around drugs. If you are using how did you get by the ua.

      Your druggie friends will always get you back into trouble and that goes for any dealer 'freinds'.

      You have used a lawyer (maybe court appt.). Call them up and ask what to do (it is att/client privilege privacy).

      Turning yourself in if your attt. suggests so would sort of defeat the loan - you cannot get money to pay it back while in jail. And maybe he would forget about it by the time you finish your sentence. Or he might be in jail by that time or even, given the violence of the drug trade, he might not be a problem for you at all.

      I wonder if you have a house as an asset or credit cards - most of our drug dealing clients used and every asset and relative's asset was put on the line. Those who did not use were the ones who made money and were able to keep it but they were usually eventually caught.

      The att. could as one poster mentioned help you negotiate a deal perhaps and tell you how to best proceed.

      The only other option is to go in local hiding from the drug dealer and be trying to get him his money some legal way.

      Crime always compounds against you.

          Are your other debts from legitimate sources like bank loans or credit cards? Or are they illegal like loan sharks and bookies? Maybe you can squeal on the drug dealer and also on the illegal creditors, eliminating ALL your debt.

            If you don't want to turn yourself in, which would actually be the smartest thing, then I would get a cash advance on every single credit card you have, sell everything possible you own, pay the drug dealer what you have, ask him if you can wash his car for the next 3 months, clean his toilet, whatever, to make up the difference, then declare bankruptcy and start over with a new life, all cash. Maybe even move to a new city, or better a small town with little drug traffic (does that even exist now?). Alaska would be an excellent choice. You could even try to get a job in the crab industry...hard work, but pays a ton of money and if you use drugs while working on the Bering sea you probably will not have to worry much about your future.

                I grew up with drugs and dealing all around me. Glad I listened to that little voice that kept telling me to just walk away. Hope OP listens to that voice in the future.

                  Wow, these are the kinds of questions you'd like to discuss in a high school math or econ class.

                    I also grew up around drugs, specificaly I was a child of drug addicts and users(i have never done drug of any kind), drugs and alchohol abuse damages the part of your brain that helps you make good decisions, compounding the behavior making it even harder to make good decisions
                    it is a sad cycle that usually does not end well

                      Sorry to hear that. Hope your brother gets the help he needs.

                        thank you , but he has been on meth for 26 years, he is really toast,I doubt there is any hope for his recovery

                        long term drug abuse just destroys your brain,its not pretty

                        I suspect that if OP post is not just a joke he is in big trouble,my brother in his younger days thought he was smart and would do things like OP ,very sad the whole drug abuse crap

                          At some point you have to stand up and face your demons or they will haunt you til the day you die. I've worked in law enforcement in various capacities for many years and have seen many stories like your brothers and like the op's. It's disheartening to see it over and over but I've learned that you can't hide or run away from it unless you're willing to let it destroy you and it always will.


                          I suspect the OP has drug issues of his own and if he gets away with this somehow it will resurface at some point.

                            Tomorrow is the deadline and I haven't been able to come up with the total amount of money.

                            I thought about going to the police, but since telling them the trouble I'm in will bring on new charges plus land me back in jail for a parole violation, it's not something I'm willing to do.

                            I've decided to check myself into a drug rehab center using the money that I do have that I should pay the dealer. If I can stick with it, the treatment lasts 3 months where he won't be able to get to me. I realise that by doing this I may violate my parole, but I'm hoping by taking a proactive stance that they will look kindly on me. That will give me 3 months to try and figure out a way to come up with the money I owe the dealer.

                            I know this isn't a perfect plan, but it's the best of the poor choices I have. I'm not sure if I will have computer access in treatment so that I can update here, but I will if I can. If not, then I will when I'm released.

                            So now my debt question has changed. I have 3 months to come up with $10,000, but I'll be in treatment where there is very little I can do since it will be highly restricted. Any thoughts of how I can do this?

                              Your first step needs to be getting clean. You're going to rehab for the wrong reason but at least you're going. 10 k in 3 mo's. Other than playing the lottery or going to vegas I don't know any way to accomplish that. You need to kick this and face things man to man. I don't know your deal or dealer or if he's a semi friend(most dealers don't make these kinds of loans to just anybody). You're running from a problem you need to face head on.

                              I don't think you'll come up with this cash in rehab.. Like I said previously dude.....Time to stand up and take your pain for better or worse. Sometimes you get the bear and sometimes the bear gets you but go out growling.

                              I personally think you're running from the problem but only you can determine the outcome. Good luck.

                                Take some drugs with you to the rehab center. You could sell at a higher price to the inmates there and solve your money problem. Just don't get caught.

                                Next you could consider doing porn. Lots of people with drug problems end up in the porn industry. There are other qualifications, but you'll have to evaluate your prospects yourself.
