Customer Question
I was pulled over...

I was pulled over in AZ.had weed in car less than a half oz. did not get a ticket or anything.the officer let me go . Five months later I get a letter in the mail AZ.is charging me with three felonies. Do I get a attorney in my home state of TX. Or AZ.

Lawyer's Assistant: What state is this in? And can you tell me a little more about the charge?

Arizona marijuana possession/use having a weight lt 2 lbs,drug paraphernalia-possession/use ,possess/use won in drug off

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Mo No

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I think the reason they are being so hard on me.i was a corrections officer when this happens. But no longer have that job because the officer that pulled me over called my warden and got me firied.

Good morning. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. You would retain counsel in AZ, where the charges against you were filed. That is where you would have to appear and where the case would be fought, as AZ has jurisdiction over the matter. It is odd that the officer released you and no action was taken yet they are coming back now, and charging you with three felonies. If they did not seize or take anything as evidence, you could have a defense and it would need to be looked into, as to how this happened and why they are coming back now when all you have was half an ounce

He did take less than a half oz.of pot . Paraphernalia,and a hand gun.thay where all in my suitcase in my trunk and I told the officer where they where when he asked.he had a dog with him.
Lawyer: LegalKnowledge, Attorney replied 4 months ago

It is something which would need to be defended if you wanted to and your attorney would make a demand for discovery and see all the evidence which the State has and will use against you. Once that is done, you can decide if you want to go to trial if you have defenses or try and resolve this with a plea deal but you do need counsel in Arizona, where you are being charged.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
