The police officer came to my window and recognized my friend's friend (A), there is a warrant out for his arrest. The arrested him and put me in handcuffs as well, they soon got a warrant to search the car and found A's backpack in my trunk which contains large amount of cocaine. Now I am facing felony charges. Is there any misconduct involved? and How much would a lawyer charge to represent me.I didn't even know the person, and I just briefly explain that to the police without saying much anything else.
