My question involves criminal law for the state of: Pennsylvania
I was parked on the side of the road. A state police vehicle pulled up behind my vehicle. The long story short routine is that after refusing a search of my vehicle my vehicle was confiscated. After 48 hours my wife was told that she could pick up the vehicle and that I was being charged with possession of marijuana. Three weeks later a post was made in the local newspaper saying I was being charged with driving under the influence because a small amount of marijuana was found along with drug paraphernalia. A full week later I am receiving spam, snail mail, from attorneys saying I was being or charged with drug paraphernalia. My point is that it has been a month now and nothing officially from the police or DA. Because of the newspaper post I was terminated from my employment and I have received as I have said numerous unsolicited letters or advertisements from attorneys wishing to help me with my charges. I have since then about a week ago taken a hair analysis test at my own request, paid for by me, which came back negative for any drugs. It is my understanding that this test is usually good for 90 days. So this means that I was drug free on the day of the incident. Along with all the possible question I am wondering was sort of chance I have to fight a drug paraphernalia charge when they got no drugs and I was drug free at the time.
