My passenger was on probation so they were searchable. But i was under impression they could only search that side within arms length. They let passenger go but arrested me. I gave them proper id. Also truck was parked legally and they towed my truck.
You don't say what you were arrested for? Your passenger is on probation so they can search person place or property. You will need a consultation with local criminal defense counsel to fill in all the missing pieces to this puzzle. Not enough facts are presented here. Schedule a free consultation which many attorneys like myself offer and pick the one you like, trust and can afford. Good luck. Hope this helps?
Generally speaking, yes. However, an exception may apply. It is hard to say from the limited facts you provide. What was said to police? Whose car was it? Was the contraband in plain view? Where exactly was it found? Who else was in the car? What else was found, if anything? You see, the totality of the circumstances is important, so you ought to hire an attorney who is experienced in filing such motions to suppress in criminal cases and winning. Good luck to you.
You are not providing enough information to give you a clear answer. Obviously, the police believed they had probable cause for the search, but we do not know why. What were you arrested for? You should consult with a local criminal attorney and provide them with all the information about the incident. Most will offer a free consultation. Good luck.
