Cwrong name have case throwed an out? Bamer
"Cwrong name have case throwed an out? "
"can I be charged ?"
possibly but probably won't be
An informant was in the house prior to the raid so the cops probably have detailed information about who was involved.
If you are a known drug dealer they will try and stick to you eventhough it would not pass the reasonable doubt test.At least in Texas it wouldn't.
On the other hand if you were in the room where the informant made the purchase it may not be such a weak case.Only you know how involved you were in the activity taking place at that house.
As a rule of thumb the cops probably know more than you think they do.That may work in your favor or maybe it will work against you.
