What is the name of your state? Maryland
Me and a friend were pulled over for a broken tail light (there was nothing wrong with the light). It was my friends car and he was driving and I was in the passenger seat. My friend opened the glovebox to get his registration and the officers noticed a spoon sitting on top of some papers in the glove box and claimed it had a white residue on it which gave them reason to search the car (the spoon was sitting next to a knife and fork and none of them, including the spoon, had white residue on them. In the glove box they ended up finding (2) syringes in a diabetic test kit and a gelcap containing a small amount of heroin. We were both arrested and charged for the drugs and paraphernalia. Nothing belonged to me and I was just a passenger. What do I need to do to get out of this mess. Thanks to everybody.What is the name of your state?
