If a cop finds evidence of drug paraphernalia inside a car after the owner said they didn't want their car searched, should that be a reason to have the evidence thrown out of court?
Yes, but you can be sure the police will have a slightly different version. Which one will the judge go with????See question
would like to visit family and friends in Calafornia, through LAX airport can I be detained
Yes. You need to hire an attorney familiar with criminal and immigration law. You will need a letter from immigration authorities in advance. I have done this for clients in the past.See question

Hire an attorney. The attorney may be able to resolve the matter without you having to appear. Alternatively, the attorney can appear for you to request an adjournment. If you ignore it, the court will issue a warrant for your arrest for failure to appear.See question

If this is a search warrant case and you are the target, chances of DP are slim to none, but obviously any attorney would need to review all the documents and speak to you in a confidential setting to give you any kind of real legal opinion. Same goes for strength of prosecution's case at trial. For obvious reasons, most drug dealers don't operate out of their own home, so the fact that you don't live there doesn't mean very much to me.See question
How much time can you be doing with 3 misdemeanors, 1 A Felony, 1 B Felony, 1 C Felony and 1 D felony ?

You won't have problems at the border, but I wouldn't let this go unresolved. Go to the court clerk and ask if there is a warrant out. No one will be grabbing your passport or printing you over this. If you can't do it yourself, hire an attorney to do it for you.See question

If you can't afford an attorney, one will be provided to you on your court date. By hiring your own attorney, you will have someone who can explain the procedure to you in advance and answer all your questions.See question
