You absolutely need to hire a lawyer. If the pills were not in plain view but where you could not see them & you didn't know about them, then there is a good chance, with a good lawyer & your sister's cooperation, that the case can be dismissed. However, you do not want to find yourself arguing with the prosecutor about the strength of his/her case.
