i was recently charged with unlawful possession
of a stolen vehicle, but the vehicle was not stolen at all. it was a rental car. i was sitting in the drivers seat but the car was off and the keys were not in the ignition. we were pulled over on the side of the road, parked next to the sidewalk. it was my girlfriend and i in the car. it was about 6 am and we had been out all night. that is why we pulled over instead of driving
. after falling asleep, i awoke to my girlfriend shaking my leg saying to wake up, bc a cop had his lights on and had pulled up to my car, facing front end to front end. he got out and walked up to us asking for identification saying that there were reports stating that we were waving drugs out the window. which didnt happen. he asked for my id, i told him i didnt have one. my girlfriend gave the cop her id. he asked my name, i lied and gave him my little brothers name, address, and dob. he said that he couldnt find me in the system, and detained me until he could figure out who i really was. then he started searching the rental car. which wasnt rented in my name either, a friend rented it and had loaned it to me
JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: i was ncf @ court and then 3 months later they brought the charges back up
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
