Currently i have a dangerous drug charge f4 and nisconduct involving weapons and paraphnila f6
I have pre hearing tuesday. I also am under investigation im sure it has to do with drugs or some of the people i was hanging around. Now cant i ask the lawyer to reqiest that any charges that may or may not come from that investigation be scratched or combined with this case
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Currently there are no charges filed on the investigation. As of yet
Criminal Lawyer: CrimDefense, CriminalDefenseAtty replied 7 months ago

Thank you. In a situation like this, if the charges are related, they could add them and amend the charging document, to include them. However, you can not ask that they do not proceed and file any new charges, if they are unrelated and if you are being investigated. They would have a legal right to charge you separately if there is evidence of a new unrelated crime, I am sorry to say. Now, if they did file new charges, the cases could be consolidated so if you wanted to take a plea, you could do so and the sentences could run concurrently.

is it a good idea to bring it up to my attorney.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
He is a public defender
Criminal Lawyer: CrimDefense, CriminalDefenseAtty replied 7 months ago

Yes, you should speak with your attorney as he is representing you and can act in your best interest. He should be made aware, in case there is something he can do to help.

Now are they allowed to search my vehicle because they sae syringes in a back pack of mine.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
shouldnt i beable to get the gun back cuz they are not charging me with it and im allowed to have guns
Criminal Lawyer: CrimDefense, CriminalDefenseAtty replied 7 months ago

They need probable cause to search the vehicle or they can search it incident to a lawful arrest. As far as the gun, if they are not charging you with it, it should be returned and your attorney can file a motion for the return of it and the Judge would sign an order.

would syringes bbe probable cause to search my entire car
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
They cant just assume they were used for drugs . ? He never asked if i was diabetic
Criminal Lawyer: CrimDefense, CriminalDefenseAtty replied 7 months ago

If they believed that they were being used for illegal drugs. The officer would need to be deposed and it would need to be known why they even went in the bag to begin with.

I was pulled over for a headlight out and found out. My licence was suspended. And they saw the syringes when my boyfriend was looking for my licence. They had no reason to think it was for drugs
Criminal Lawyer: CrimDefense, CriminalDefenseAtty replied 7 months ago

A motion to suppress could be filed then and it will be up to the Judge to decide if the evidence should be let in. If it is suppressed and not allowed, the State may have to drop the charges.

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Is it common that they supress evidence? But even still were they allowed to search my vehicle just for two syringes.
Criminal Lawyer: CrimDefense, CriminalDefenseAtty replied 7 months ago

It is common if there was no legal basis for it. If they believed that there were drugs in the car as a result of this or them being used for drugs, it would give the officers a basis to search. Of course, there should have been questions asked but if they had doubts, they could search it.

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
They never asked no questions. They went ahead and searched my vehicle .
Criminal Lawyer: CrimDefense, CriminalDefenseAtty replied 7 months ago

Then your attorney will need to investigate this, depose the officers and file the motion and it will be up to the Judge to decide You may have to testify as well if your attorney thinks it is in your best interest to do so.
