Recently a family member was pulled over for a traffic violation. Fearing a DUI he attempted to allude the officer. Upon capture he was frisked with nothing found, handcuffed and put in patrol car. After his vehicle was searched, he was removed from patrol car and thoroughly searched again with nothing found. He was then transported to jail and placed under arrest. After sometime he was approached by arresting officer and presented with a vial containing 3 grams of cocaine and was told it was found in the patrol car. The folowing morning he was questioned by detectives who informed him that an additional 3 oz of mariuana had been found in his vehicle. At his preliminary hearing the court papers he was presented claimed that all drugs were found in the patrol car.
We totally believe his claims of innocence. This individual is not the type to have those amounts or type of drugs on him.
How can this be proved in court?
Why did the officer not find these on him in the initial search?
How could he while handcuffed, remove these large amounts from his person and deposit them in the patrol car?
Why is there the discreprecy on where the drugs where found?
Are there any organizations that help us investigate the possibilty of small town corruption?

He is entitled to have a lawyer represent him and if he can't afford one -- and you do not want to chip in -- the court will appoint one for him. Hopefully that lawyer will do the investigations. But please don't necessarily believe everything someone says -- friend or cop.

The reason I am so adamant about the innoncence in this case is that this is a very close family member. Granted this man is no angel and it was stupid to allude the police.There is the possibility that the police are prejudice against him due to past incidents and the fact that he refused to cooperate by giving names. We do have a lawyer currently but from a small firm in the same town as the charges were filed.
Would you recommend finding someone outside the immediate area?
