My question involves criminal law for the state of: Florida, Dade County
I was arrested July 24th 2012 for possession of marijuana. Possession of 20 grams or less is a misdemeanor.
It was only ≤ 0.6 grams of marijuana. For the record.
Me and "Subject A" got arrested as we where about to drive off. "Subject A" had the marijuana in his pocket. Constructive Possesion
In the arrest affidavit i noticed the police officer put an "unknown co-defendant" (unknown because i didnt know who that person was before the arrest, and it turns out he was a dealer. But the funny thing is "Subject A" didn't even purchase the marijuana from the "unknown co-defendant") it should have been "Subject A" as the co-defendant being in fact he was the one inside the vehicle.
The statement reads something like this. "...the Def. was the driver of a white vehicle (not going to go into details), where the Co.Def was arrested for the purchase of marijuana. The suspected marijuana was recovered from inside the Def. vehicle on the Co-Def. lap, well within reach of the Def. ...."
Does this make it a false affidavit? How can i prove i had no knowledge of the marijuana being in my vehicle?
