A friend needed a place to stay so he came over next day police came to my house saying he was a runaway. We both were in the garage when she pulled up. He was smoking marijuana and then threw in down when he heard her. She did not see who was smoking or who had it. We both got charged with possession. She then told my mother that my friend was a runaway but then stated that his dad knew he was here and that it was fine and she knew that the school dropped him off here. So how is he a runaway if everyone knew where he was and they were ok with it? So why are u here? After searching the garage and me and my friend they only found what was left of what he was smoking and it was his it wasnt even mine and we both got charged. I wasn't even smoking. So she took my friend to her car as I talked with other police officer. I signed my paper and went inside the one officer left and her and my friend sat in car for another 30 minutes and I had to go to work so I left. When my mom comes home he is still here. We assumed one of his parents were coming or she was gonna take him home. She left him her without consulting my mother. his charge has been dropped
Didn't you ask the same question once before? Answers are the same--you case won't get dropped, but your lawyer may be able to challenge evidence--MAYBE. Get a criminal defense attorney.
