Hey..so I am in Iowa and last year I got a possession of paraphernalia charge. I took a deferred judgment and have been on unsupervised probation. I should have come off in December but unfortunately did not because my file from the substance abuse evaluator at the clerk of court. anyway, i got pulled over for speeding today and ended up having my car searched and my pipe and small plastic bong were found in my back pack. it is actually bull shit...he pulled me over and i immediately reached over into my glove box and grabbed my registration and insurance..he shows up and accuses me of stashing something under my seat and told me to get out of the car so he could search under the seat. while he is doing that, he finds a crumb of weed from a previous session..literally a crumb or two like in the carpet..i couldnt believe it and he tests it and its weed so he says since it is in my car it is mine, and he has the right to search my entire car. bull shit. i wonder if i can fight that he didnt have probable cause to search my car in the first place?
anyway..i got another paraphernalia ticket today..since i was on probation still i obviously will fail that and so im wondering what kind of trouble im looking at?
i also wonder, i have a court date about my probation march 9th, i could go in and show them i had done everything they asked, get off probation, then go to the judge on the 19th for this new ticket off probation and a clean record....hmm im gonna have to get in touch with a lawyer.
