Hi! I will be the professional that will be helping you today. I look forward to providing you with information to help solve your problem.
Good afternoon. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. In order for the Officer to stop your vehicle, there needs to be a legal basis to support it. You shared above that the officer originally said he observed you and pulled you over for not signaling ( which could other be an issue) but then admitted that he never actually saw you change lanes and if there was a signal on, to begin with. As such, there is certainly doubt and issues with credibility to attack. With that being said, a motion to suppress
could be filed if there was no basis to stop the vehicle to begin with. Moreover, the officer would need probable cause to search the vehicle and if he did not and simply did this as a result of you refusing to exit the vehicle, in the rain, then there also could be grounds to suppress the search. If so, the meth and pills could not come in. A deposition of the officer would need to be taken and all the other facts need to be flushed out. If the officer admitted he never actual saw if a signal ever went on when changing lanes and observing you, you could fight this.
