You MAY qualify for a pro bono legal services program there in LA (call the local lawyers group or bar association, they can provide the telephone number). I would call your city council representative, the mayor's office, your state senator's office, your congressional representative's office, the chief of police's office, and ramp it up. NOW UNDERSTAND, do not declare a paper war or publicity war on the PD or the detective; your's is one of a hundred or more cases, BE KIND AND GRACIOUS AND CURIOUS about how this could happen to a citizen in your fine city! ALWAYS. Walk in and show your license. Walk in and ask for the report, the identity of the person found driving "this car" get the tow yard number for you car, the full name and address of the tow yard, and the year, make, model, and VIN number of your car, with tag number, and have your automobile insurance policy (OR A COPY) with you.
