My question involves police conduct in the State of: Montana
The police report the officer states that the reason he became suspicious is because when he was stopping us I had my head down & it appeared I was hiding something from him under the seat. I wasn't trying to hide anything & in fact forgot about the paraphernalia in my purse until he had my purse in his hand & said he was going to search it, then I remembered & verbally refused him to dig in it. He said that when he talked to my bf that he was extremely nervous, talking very fast, speech mumbled & bloodshot eyes. If you knew my bf you would find that he is not good at all at talking to any kind of authority figures & actually starts to sweat when doing so, even with Dr.'s.
If I actually was trying to hide something I certainly wouldn't hide it in my own purse, to incriminate myself & have the purse by my feet or even admit the purse was mine. If I wanted to hide something in a vehicle it would be in a common area where the police can't pinpoint me as the owner, or anyone for that matter. We go to court next week & I need advice
If you think of similar case please let me know so I can look at it
