After being held for 5 days I was released with no charges filed. 5 months later there is a warrant for my arrest. I was refused my medication and when someone came to pay my bail on a Saturday morning he was told that he would have to come back Monday through Friday between 8 and 4 because they don't bail people out on the weekends. Plus I believe it was illegal search of my vehicle and I want to know what I could do to get the case thrown out.
You will need to discuss case issues with your lawyer who is in the position to address these matters.
If the drugs were found after an illegal search, the evidence would be suppressed and the case would likely be dismissed. Proving a search was illegal can be difficult. I would suggest sitting down with an experienced criminal defense attorney ASAP. Time is very important in these cases. An attorney may be able to track down surveillance footage or other witnesses that may aide in your defense. Most attorneys here on AVVO, including myself, offer free initial consultations. Set up a consultation and discuss your case and options. Best of luck!
