My question involves criminal law for the state of: South Carolina
Someone I know plead not guilty to a simple poss of marijuana. Was then found guilty after trial. Now, the reason of this poss charge is occurring from another charge. Cops come into the house for reason of the officers security in a domestic violence charge and see the substance on a table. NOW, if this person is found not guilty for the domestic violence charge, can this person go to the court the possession charge is from and ask for a reopen? This person being found not guilty for the domestic charge, that would mean the officers shouldn't of come into this persons house in the first place right? I hope this question makes sense.
Also if all this does make sense and this person could reopen the case in this situation, if they won on the reopen does that mean they would get their money back from the fines paid for the possession charge?
