Unlawful arrest

#1
State of Georgia
. I was unlawful arrested and all my constitutional rights violated. Got locked up for Marijuana that was never in my car. I recorded the events from my phone. They brought a k9 unit and had the dog do the search. You can see clearly in the video the officer saying if there is any drug in the car the dog will bark at the source. Naturally none of that happened and they still find a way to plant a spec of Marijuana in the car and took me to jail. I went to the police department paid for a copy of the video and I was given one with no sound.
My question is should I show the DA my video and go from there.
This event changed my life in so many ways.

Get a lawyer. I have almost none of the facts. I haven’t seen your video or the one the police gave you. Without all the facts and reviewing the available evidence it is impossible to advise you on what specific steps you should take in your case. While the cops may have violated one or more of your rights, I doubt very much they violated ALL of them. It will not help you in court to make claims that are overreaching and unsupportable, like a claim that “all my rights were violated.” So avoid the temptation to make those kinds of sweeping statements. It only hurts your credibility to do that. You want to focus on those things that are relevant to the case and that you can support with admissible evidence.

Thanks for your reply. I was wondering if it is a good idea to share the video I recorded with my phone with the district attorney.
I was searched without my consent.
I was told to get out of the car without my consent.
When I told the officer I am a Uber driver he told me I was not as if that job was not one for me.
They planted Marijuana in my car because the police dog never barked and even walked away from the car so obviously they had no reason to get in my car for the simple fact that the dog never alerted drugs.

Why were you pulled over?

What were you charged with? Possession of marijuana or a driving offense (e.g., driving under the influence, driving while intoxicated) or something else entirely?

You should not show the video to the DA. You should show the video to your attorney and you should say NOTHING to the DA (or the police).

Although not outside the realm of possibilities, it is highly unlikely that police planted drugs in your vehicle.

Consult with an attorney in your area.

Good luck.
