My question involves civil rights in the State of: Texas
Ok, so my friend and i were parked behind a church and were preparing to smoke weed. All of a sudden the cops pull up behind us, get out of their car, open the door of my friends pick up truck and proceed to question us. They ask us what was in our bags, and we tell them that it's stuff so that we can stay the night. The officer notices a pill bottle and asks what was in there. We tell them its allergy pills but they aren't satisfied then proceed to grab the bottle out of our hands and discoer that weed was in the bottle. We were both ticketed for drug paraphernalia (which could have been way worse). I was wondering if there were any legal loopholes or ways i could fight the ticket? If not, how can i get this off of my record or spend the least money possible on the ticket? I have heard to plea guilty and the defer the ticket and be on probation, but is there a way to plea not guilty and defer the ticket and get this off of my record? How much should the ticket cost if we only had 2 grams on us? When the cops opened our door without our consent, did it violate the 4th amendment? Was taking the pill bottle from us without consent anything significant? Please respond ASAP. Thank you in advance.
