Hi, I'm so sorry you wrapped up in this trouble.
With regard to your post:
my brother and were arested on the 23 of dec for trans of drugs on I 5, they questioned us gave us a ticket you can't even read the info on. when released and got our vehicle we couldn't find the regestration or insurance paper work. we went back to the sherifs office, who sent us to the CHP office. while there the watch comder contacted officer Cheivers who was the aresting officer,he told him it was in the cooler part of the counsel.i then asked what happens now, i was told that we would be contacted by someone, iv'e had no contact from anyone. I'm pretty scared right now,don't know what i'm suppose to do
I suspect the charging paperwork is in the works, and holidays have slowed things down a bit. However, now is the time to keep quiet and hire your criminal
defense attorney. You want him on board as soon as possible, so that when you are alerted to your first court
date, he can demand discovery, which will tell him if he can get these charged dismissed or downgraded. There may be a suppression issue, where certain evidence can be kept out of any future trial
, so that your chances of dismissal or amended charges (or winning at trial) are far greater. While you do not have charges in hand now, I'd figure out WHO I will be using when they are served on you, so he is ready to help. That may mean getting your financials together so you can pay him, be that by your own savings or loan, etc. You do NOT want to use a public defender if you are hoping for a dismissal or terrific plea arrangment. Do not forget that the PD is paid by the state and works daily with the prosecutor.
Good luck. Once you get a strong and experienced fighter on YOUR side, you will feel much relief
that you are doing all you can for yourself.
