My question involves search and seizure law in the State of: Ohio
Last night I was in a car driving to a party at a house we had never been to before. I was turned around talking to the passengers in the backseat when we abruptly discovered the street we were looking for and made a sharp turn. We were immediately pulled over and, before they even informed us as to why we were pulled over, a K-9 unit searched the car.
Three paraphernalia charges were distributed, one person got 2, and the other got 1. My questions are: what kind of sentence are they looking at and was this an unlawful search?
The police said we looked suspicious because I was turned around and we made a sharp turn (as if to get away from the cops) but in all honesty I had no idea they were even in the area until I saw the lights.
All help is much appreciated
