My question involves criminal law for the state of: ct
I have a question about legal representation, I cannot afford an attorney, I was pulled over one night with my girlfriend (we don't know why) and was asked if they could search the car, we agreed, they found nothing, but my girlfriend (unbeknownst to me) had 3 (three) 1 mg. klonopin pills in her pocket,
we were both arresested, (the state police even drew a gun on her), they brought us to the station, interrogated us trying to get names of drug dealers , we don't do any of that. my girlfriend was having a tough time because a friend died and thought the klonopin would help, police told us if we could give names of dealers all of this would go away. long story short, they charged us both with possession of a narcotic 21a-278(b, as well as intent to sell !!21a-278(b)
this was all over 3 pills, I knew nothing of, yet I was charged too, and sell??? 3 pills???
I need help, i'm terrified, we went to court I didn't get to talk to anyone the case was continued I didn't have the $25 fee. What should I do??? will a public defender help me and how can I get this thrown out I DIDN"T DO ANYTHING !!!! the police harrased me because i'm a musician and said, all musicians use drugs, I need help. please advise, point me in the right direction, thankyou
