I have spent literally hours and hours combing http://www.legislature.mi.gov in addition to hours looking through the forums here and I can't find an answer to my question or something similar.
The closest I've come is generic "misdemeanor" charges and I don't know if that applies either.
A year ago my boyfriend was pulled over in some sort of sting, he was searched and had about $2000 confiscated from him. He was never charged with anything. He hired a good lawyer, albeit an expensive lawyer which has made asking questions prohibitively expensive. His lawyer said something about conspiracy to deliver (It's been almost a year, i can't remember how it was worded). Can one be charged with conspiracy to deliver without anything to deliver?
I can't think of any other evidence they could have on him aside from this: he was on his way to pick up someone he didn't know very well who had called to say his car was broken down a few hours away and he needed a ride to our town. Perhaps this guy had drugs on him and was arrested and tried to pin it on my boyfriend (or whoever else would agree to come pick him up)? Can they use such circumstantial evidence? In the days before Christmas I don't think it's uncommon for people to have money in their pockets so how could that be used as proof?
My boyfriend has a spotless record (not even a traffic violation), works a job, runs his own business, and is about to graduate college;he's also an anxious wreck every day wondering if they're "coming for him." He's afraid to start applying for jobs in his field and move on with his life. Is there any statute of limitations that applies to this? If they had anything even vaguely concrete wouldn't they have done something about it by now?
As I said, I've been trying to research this for literally months and can find no good information on his situation. He doesn't want me to talk to his lawyer because he wants to keep me out of it. (He means well) But the anxiety is killing me, too.
