another one bites the dust...busted.
    #2141193 - 11/27/03 11:43 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

happy thanksgiving btw. well, the cop didnt seem to think so. i got pulled over at 2:10am for supposedly swirving over into the other lane. the cop had me get out of my car, and he found my bowl in my pocket. he then handcuffed me, and put me in the back of the cop car. he searched my car and found some weed, maybe a gram or so. i didnt claim the pot, but my friend did. he gets handcuffed and placed into a different car. off we go to the police station. sent to jail (really a holding cell). friends bailed me out at $100.00. i got charged with poss of marijuana and poss of paraphernalia and a warning for OWPD (i believe its for driving under the influence). my friend got charged with poss of marijuana. i got charged with poss of marijuana for my fucking bowl, he counted the bowl like it was actual pot cause if it was tested itd test positive for mj. i have a previous mip on my record, which would of been expunged from my record in january (took the first offenders program). they also impounded my car. my court date is december 9. im pretty sure i am completely fucked, but id like some opinions. how much is the impound fee going to be? is it a cash only payment? also, my friend and i do not recall me swirving in the other lane nor driving bad at all, and i never speed (im paranoid). and they never buckled me in when driving to the police station. will any of that have any say in court? please share your thoughts. thanks. fuck the police.

I wish I had something good to tell you.
It's not the end of the world, certainly nothing you can't get past, but living in the US... you're likely going to get treated badly.

Try to make yourself look like a good student, or productive citizen in court, that's your best best.

Good luck.

Ok, here's what gets people busted:

1) driving around with stuff on them

Ok so at some point you have to drive and carry I guess. First, don't be under the influence or consuming when you drive. Second, if you're pulled over the cops can pat you down for weapons but that is all they can do unless they have probable cause. Sometimes its safer to have stuff on your person rather than stuffed in a bag or whatnot, but when you're driving its best to stash stuff in your car somewhere. Especially if its hard and a pat-down could interpret it to be a weapon.

2) talking too much (this doesn't apply in your case)


If people are smart about 1) and 2) there wouldn't be nearly so many busts.

A lawyer could cost you anywhere from $400-$1000, but he'll get you off the hook. He probably won't be able to save your car, that'll cost a couple hundred bucks. Trust me get a lawyer, they know how to deal with this shit.

You probably don't need a lawyer for simple posession (assuming you don't have priors and you don't live in Alabama).

Of course having a good lawyer would be the best course of action,but I don't know about you,but I don't have that kind of money to blow. You should at least try to get some kind of legal consultation or something though.

You'll most likely get a fine maybe,some community service,a rehab possibly,and random drug tests for six months to a year.

Heres' the low-down dawg. Get a lawyer. I just went through pretty much the same thing.
I was speeding 30 over through a construction zone, dui, and a weed charge.
They found my empty glass piece with resin and called it mis. weed possesion.
I got a $100 court appointed lawyer and he did some pretty damn good work.
He combined the speeding with the dui so there goes the speeding charge. then he got a lab test done on the resin in my piece. the results came back and there wasn't enough resin to call it pot or some shit so there goes my weed charge. So I was left with a minor dui. little shit. and at first the judge told me my fine was 1200 and the lawyer got it dropped to 420. i have to do 40 hours of community service and take a dui school and risk reduction class. and probation till i'm done. probably 6 months.
so yeah man. get a lawyer. even if it's a cheap one. they help alot.
good luck

I am pretty sure the mip would still matter because it would be less than one year when the infraction took place.  They'd base it on when you got busted, not when the case is decided.  But definately consult a lawyer and look into a public defender.  If you can't afford one, the court will give you a lawyer for a small fee (~$50 I think).
anyways good luck with your case  :tongue:

"where can i get a lawyer for $100? "

i normally go to the court house and wait around, normally you can find one for cheap, i once met a lawyer in the court house and offered him $45 to defend me on a traffic matter, he did it and i got off.


in this american legal system if you want to get off get a lawyer, theyll be able to get you a deal that many times you could not.

or if you really want to get off
try finding one that was a former prosecutor in your area, this works great for me

if you can afford one, you need to find a criminal defense lawyer, preferably one with alot of experience with drug cases and one that has worked in your area for some time. just picking one at random down at the courthouse is a bad idea.

december 9th? that's probably a preliminary hearing, no? if you haven't yet had time to get a lawyer, they have to postpone the hearing. get a lawyer, but i wouldn't count on getting out of this one. why did he search you in the first place?

i called the court office and the lady said i will be arraigned at that time and then i will talk to the prosecutor about my case. she said it was my pre-trial. there is no away i can afford a criminal defense lawyer. "If you plan on hiring an attorney, you must notify him/her that you are scheduled for arraignment on the above listed date for the cited offense, and that the prosecutor assigned to this case will also be present for the pre-trial and any acceptance of please." but since i cant afford a lawyer, what should i do? the cop searched me because he smelled marijuana on my breath and clothes.

personally... if you were driving stoned i think you deserve what's coming to you...

if you cannot afford a lawyer, the state must appoint one for you.
