If I was driving a shared vehicle and was stopped but someone else left drugs in the car so I was charged, what happens to them if they go to court and admit to this?
Question Details: I share a vehicle with other people. One of those left drugs in the car. I got searched and charged the police left the persons smoking device in the car behind the seat snd some drugs as well. When the car was released from impound, it was not checked so when I bailed out of jail and got in the vehicle and drove to work, the police from a different jurisdiction got behind me. They ran the out of town plates came and it back it was in an arrest for drugs recently and they pulled me stating brake light was out. My dad's a mechanic and picked the car up from impound and checked to see if it really was out it was not out. Anyway, they lulled me out and said that I had to let them search or I was going to jail. Well they found the stuff the other jurisdiction had failed to get out and immediately arrested me again. If the person they belonged to testifies in court can they then be charged with leaving the drugs in the car?
