then I was arrested and car impounded and they seized 30,000 in cash when I wasn't there how do I get this back
While window tint might provide probable cause for the stop, the search of your vehicle and the seizure of cash may be a different story. Did the officer claim odor of marijuana? Was there a K9? The impound search of your vehicle may be unlawful. The state is likely going to attempt to forfeit the cash it found. You need to take action immediately to protect your rights. Contact an experienced criminal defense and forfeiture attorney right away.
Law enforcement will try to forfeit your money and keep it. You will want to contact a competent attorney immediately because the outcome of your drug charge can play a role in the forfeiture proceedings and there is a time frame for challenging the forfeiture once the State files for it.
