My question involves criminal law for the state of: Pennsylvania
This occurred yesterday at 8:00 pm. I am going to make this short and only include important facts.
People involved were my boyfriend who is 19, his older sister whos 22, and our friend who is 19 also. We were all smoking weed in his car. We got out, smoked a cig, then an uninvited friend pulled up in front my friends car. We walked over to the car to say wasup. My boyfriend went to the passenger seat to have a word with the driver. Us 3 are standing on the passenger side of the car. There were 2 other passengers, male and female. They had a bowl in rotation. Only them 3 were smoking it. Then not even five minutes after our friend pulled up, a cop car rolls down the street and parks behind my friend's car. Then a second later another cop car pulls up facing my friend's car with the 3 passengers. Then another cop car right after that pulls behind the first one. So there are 3 cop cars total and they all had their lights on us. We standing there innocent. And the cops walk over.
Apparently one of the neighbors reported a lot of cars pulling in front of this house and suspicious activity of drug use. And we were all like "what is goin on?" we were playing everything off smoothly. We all had the same story to the officers. Basically that we were in my friend's car all smoking a cigarette and we were about to go into the house when our friend pulled up uninvited. and that they were only here for not even five minutes, so we didn't even get the chance to tell them to leave. One cop asks my boyfriend to step over away from us so he could talk to him and ask him questions. My boyfriend told him the same story, and that we were not smoking weed and that i, a minor, didn't smoke anything.
A long time passes and throughout that time period they basically asked my friends that were uninvited to step out the car, and their car got searched but the police didn't find anything bc they let them drive off. I don't think the cops found their bowl. Besides that, the cops were about to search my friend's vehicle and he told them he had a glass pipe in there and gave it to them. So as of now, they don't know that we were smoking, all they had found so far is a bowl. My boyfriend on the other hand had a tupperwear container with weed inside bagged up. Thank God he found a slick way to ditch it or that would have been bad. So they didnt do any body searchers, only the cars. After my friend's car got searched, he asked the cop if he could talk to him. They step behind the sheriff's truck, who pulled up probably 10 minutes before this, and are talking. i was told that my friend said, "we were all smoking one bowl in his car and that he just wanted to be honest with the cop. & that he'd appreciate if they didn't tell his boss about the bowl."
So after about an hour of talking with them, (They never asked me and my boyfriend's sister about what happened again after the first time) they call me over and say they are going to have to phone my mom because i am a minor and need consent to be with people over the age of 18. I call my mom and she comes after 10 minutes. In the meantime, they told my 3 friends, the worst they could get charged with is corruption of a minor bc i am not of age.
The police only found a bowl. They did not find any weed as evidence. I am 15 years old. I am very mature for my age and i have always been friends with older crowds. I have the mentality of a young lady, seriously. In all honesty, do you think my friends will be charged with corruption of a minor? If not, what so; Or do you think they will drop the charges?
-My boyfriend used to sell weed. The police of my town have been trying to catch him for years. The office said to him quote on quote "We know you're selling weed. You're the only one left we want. We caught everybody else. The day I catch you, i will be so happy."
-They do not know me and my boyfriend are dating. We will all leave that out bc that is illegal. He is 19 and i am 15. Big age difference.
-All 7 of us have had history with the cops. Mainly drug related. They haven't actually caught all 7 of us before with marijuana, but they KNOW about us.
