Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Thank you for using JustAnswer!
On what basis do you want to fight the ticket?
Did your son give them consent to search the vehicle?
they told him they did not need consent and they would open the car anyways. their (drug dog ) hit on the car?
That's your argument. If their drug dog "hit" on the car, then what they should have done was "secure" the area while they went to a judge for a search warrant to search the car.
You/your son should consider hiring an attorney to file a motion to dismiss based upon an illegal search.
Good luck and best wishes for better days ahead. I hope that you find this information to be helpful and this answer to be ACCEPTable!
