What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? New Hampshire
I was arrested for possesion of cocaine. It was late at night and I was outside a public place and my girlfriend was in the car smoking pot. I was outside in front of the car on the phone and a cop saw her and pulled her out of the car. He told me not to move so I didnt. The car was mine and they asked to search it and I told them yes I DONT DO DRUGS!!!! He then walked around the back of his cop car and said he saw me throw what was a small bag of white substance still dont know what was in it.He also told another cop who showed up ans he handed oit to him. There was no way I could have thrown it it was behind his car which was next to mine. when they searched me they found nothing but yet they are charging me with possession which is a felony and I could go to jail. Ive seen a lawyer and he said this is a "bs" story and he would take my case but I would need to pay him in advance. I have tried to come up with the 2500 he wants but have had no success and I go to court in Oct 7th. Will a public defender be just as good? And how bad does this look for me?
