Do i need a lawyer for disorderly conduct drugs?

Atlanta, GA |

I was arrested and my citation reads DOC Drugs (meth). I didnt have the drugs at all.It was in a locked glovebox in a car. Only thing in my possesion was about 3000 - 3500 cash. I dont have a criminal record at all.. I believe my cousin claimed it. It was 5grams of meth. He is 16. And the union city police took my money.. Both me and the driver got DOC drugs (meth) in the ticket. they released my cousin. no ticket no charge nothing.. So why wont the police give me back my money and do i need a lawyer with me??

  1. Yes you need a lawyer with you in any legal matter. Normally when there is a drug involved the police may seize the money. You want to wait until you appear in court or the case is concluded before you get your money back.

    Good luck
