My question involves criminal law for the state of:
Last week I was searched during a traffic stop. They found a used syringe in my purse. They arrested me and charged me with a paraphernalia charge. While at the station two Detectives told me that if I do what they call "a drop" for them (buying heroin from my dealer and then giving it to them along with names and numbers.) then they can get my charges dropped. I consulted a lawyer, he said with such a simple charge I shouldnn't have to do this at all, and I should go threw him. Also he told me the detectives can lie to me and call me over and over again trying to get me to do more things.
Heres the deal, I'm leaving the state in 15 days to get sober in another program. I want this over and done with. It is also vital that my family does not find out I got arrested. The advantages of doing the drop are- No legal or court fines and fees. I don't have to come back here in three months for a court date, and my family never knows and this all goes away! and please save your comments about how snitchin is wrong because all the dealers have no loyalties to me and would do it to me in a second if the tables were turned. They don't give a **** about me. Its all in the game.
I talked to the detective today. I know that Its not him who decides if my charges are dropped its the states attorney who decides. He says he e-mailed him (the states attorney) yesterday asking him if I can do this. Today we are supposed to meet up and I'm supposed to "sign" paperwork signing me up for this...but when I asked if he heard from the states attorney he texted me this "Not yet. It won't be a problem though. You don't have a criminal history. Were not going to do anything today except sign you up and I want to show you a couple pictures." Should I sign anything without him having heard from the states attorney yet? Can he be lying to me about even contacting the states attorney??? Is this detective trying to screw me?
