My question involves civil rights in the State of:
My boyfriend who is on probation was driving my car and I was sitting in the front passenger seat with my purse on the floor. We were pulled over and since my bf is on probation the cops searched the entire car and all the passengers. They claimed to be able to search my purse because it was within arm's length of my boyfriend. I refused but they searched it anyway and found syringes so I got a ticket. Can this get thrown out?
Also, before we were pulled over the we stopped at a gas station and the cop drove in, saw us, pulled across the street and waited for us to get on the freeway before pulling us over for "not stopping at a stop sign". Isn't this illegal profiling? Especially because the cop kept claiming he knew my bf from some drug raid or whatever (not true).
The cop kept threatening to bring me down to the station so I could be searched for drugs and I believed him (I now know he was bluffing) so I gave up a Dilaudid I had in my bra. I didn't have a prescription then but I do now. Can this charge also be dropped?
Under what penile code would this violation of my civil rights be under?
