    The first issue is why they got you out if the car and how they searched you. If you were able to care for your own safety and weren't passed out, for example, you may not have been 647(f) to be arrested and searched.

    You need a good criminal defense attorney. I'd strongly suggest you find someone who focuses on criminal law and who routinely practices in the court where this case will be heard.
