This is in Arkansas, and the officer had his flash light looking around in my car and seen the bag and asked what was in it. I replied my medicine. He asked what kind of medicine. I told him prescription medicine. As he was reaching inside my car he asked can i see and I was like sure. I'm thinking this was and illegal stop. The ticket I recieved did not have any traffic violations. I did ask why he was searching my things and his reply was because I have a bag full of prescription pills some that were out of bottles and because people just don't carry around a bag of meds with them. They were all prescribed to me except the 2 xanax.
Also is $2500 a high cost for lawyer fees?
Thank you so much! I already hav a meeting with one and my court date is this week but was unsure about the price but it sounds like it is totally worth it. I really cant have this on my record so I am hoping that it will go in my favor but it's been with out a doubt a lesson learned. I explained that the pill were given to me months back by my mother because i was going through a hard time but never took them and forgot about them but he didn't care and continued he was raising 2 kids--implying that i had no reason to be stressed. anyways, thank you again!
