Posted:Well, the cop asked her if she had anything illeagle on her. She said no, pending on body language and tone, it could make the cop suspicius and that is all they need. Basically the cop thought, I think your lieing so the search began.

Posted:They say honesty is the best... mmm, wonder if ray knows this one ?
Personally I think 'they' are a bunch of liars. First off I'd try to find out how much the law knows about the situation (ie ask any friends that were at the scene and/or interviewed). Make sure that any lie you tell in court coincides with the laws info on the case.
I'd probably say that I forgot that I even had it with me and headed home for some sleep (or something along those lines). I would definantly NOT tell them that you were going to smoke some pot and then decided too many people were there.
Dont worry be happy!

Posted:Honisty is the best policy, however divulging information is not needed. Dont forget your 5th amendment right, say nothing if you feel that the question will get you in trouble.

"I can neither confirm nor deny that." Can go along way.

drugs.. rock and roll. bad ass.. vegas hoes.. late night. booty calls.. shiny disco balls!!

"I can neither confirm nor deny that." Can go along way.i disagree with that however. i personally lie lie lie. and keep my answers short and direct. you dont get in any more trouble if they find out you were lying. personally i think its just dumb to tell them your guilty and if you dont answer there question they will find out on there own. i guess you may get a cop who will be kewl with you cause you told the truth but thats rare and hes not gonna let you go if its somthin big like drugs.

Posted:Did the cop already give you the ticket or whatever? Because if he didn't take down your name address etc, how's he going to give you the court summons? If that's the case, you just lost your baggie. If you do have to go into court though, um, don't look like a pathetic lowlife. The judge may let you off easier if you seem, like, reasonable. Don't lie, don't volunteer too much information, but don't act like you're hiding anything either. (Granted, I wasted about 4 hours total sitting through TRAFFIC court, so YMMV, but judges generally hate pathetic lowlifes )
But the time for the cop being "cool" generally has passed once he has left, I mean, he can choose not to show up to court, but that's about it. I've had cops let me go on felony weapons charges before (And give back said weapon, lol), but the time I had to go to court was for "jaywalking" across an intersection where the crossing light was being worked on, and I didn't press the crossing light. $75 ticket, but the judge let me off by letting me just write a 500 word essay about what a dick the cop was.
