Can a cop pull you over for a warning about your cars condition and then search your vehicle when you had committed no traffic ?
My girlfriend and I were coming home from work one night when an officer pulled us over to warn us about our muffler hanging low, we told him we appreciated it and we would be getting it fixed the next day. He then proceeded to ask if we had anything the k9 unit would hit on and my girlfriend said that not that she was aware. We were driving her mother's car. He then said that means something is in the car and asked us to hand it over. My girlfriend pulled out less than 3 grams of weed. He then asks us to step out of the car and puts us in his cruiser and searched our car. Now several weeks later after he told us she wasn't getting a dui or anything we see she's been tried with drug abuse even though the officer did a field sobriety test and determined and wasn't under the influence.
This is a pretty technical question. A K9 search is not a "search" per the courts. However officers cannot keep you or...

Wrongful arrest
i was arrested for dui for blowing .06 on breath test, which I know is bellow legal limit. i was not asked to take blood or urine test. I was arrested and transported to jail, charged with ovi, and my car was impounded. I also paid bond, tow fees, and never got my funds returned. I went to court and the judge and lawyer were appalled I was at court and dismissed the case immediately. The lawyer told me to contact an attorney that I was definitely wrongfully arrested. This happened in the summer of 2009, is it too late to take action or is this still possible? I would have tried to take action sooner, but I was incarcerated on unrelated charges from October 2010 to April 2011. I called every lawyer in my county before this and they were reluctant case because of the local police.
I am not an ohio attorney but my read of 2305.11 is that you had one year to bring this action. Consult an ohio...

Is house arrest possible for a 4th dui?
