It is unclear what your question is but you should not be discussing your case online or with anyone other than your attorney. This website is not confidential. It is possible that your attorney is working on a very good outcome for you and it is taking time due to the other defendants' cases. You need to discuss your case with your attorney. On the other hand, iIf you are dissatisfied with your attorney, go consult with or or more others and consider hiring a new lawyer. Your discussions with attorneys are confidential.
it is reasonable for your lawyer to be challenging this.
Every case varies depending on the law and the facts. Because questions often fail to disclose important facts, these 'answers' cannot and should not be relied upon as a replacement for a full or complete review of an actual case by a retained attorney. It is axiomatic that one only 'gets what they pay for', and this is one of those situations where such a phrase generally applies.
I assume you have a lawyer. He/she should be the one answering your questions. Having said that, the success of your motion to suppress is doubtful, assuming the police version is the same as yours. I say this because generally you only have standing to challenge a search of YOUR property, not someone else's. But you definitely have a viable defense to the charge itself, since the drugs were not found on you or on your property. It is difficult to comprehend how the case is pending for two years; are you paying your attorney's fees? www.galivanlaw.net
