bond is 50,000. They came to check for weapons from a complaint from his girlfriend's family. His girlfriend lives with us. They also said they came to check for her safety. They arrested her for probation violation.
The police found small quantities of controlled substance as a result of searching his room without consent or a warrant. My son has no weopons and his girlfriend is fine.
A motion to reduce the bond should be filed as $50,000 seems excessive for a simple possession of a controlled substance case. Then, the issue about the entry of the home needs to be investigated as there could be a motion to suppress the evidence found, as a result of the illegal entry. Normally, the police need more then a random phone call to be able to enter a persons home, without a warrant. They would need to have reason to believe there was danger tot he girl. Moreover, if they were there to check on her health and safety, there would be no reason to actual search the home.
