Car impoundment refund
My friend was pulled over for a non-working headlight(headlight was working, have proof,racial profiling),license was suspended so she was arrested. Car was searched,nothing was found.They search her in the back of the police car, found 2 grams of canabis.Car was impounded.Had to borrow $1400 to get it out.The canabis case was SOL,want to know is it possible to get that money back because the canabis wasn't found in the car & is it possible to get someone to represent her for this on such short notice & how much would it cost her. She has no income at the present.

Re: Car impoundment refund
It doesn't matter what happened in the criminal case, the city keeps the money. It's a money maker for them. If you are referring to a hearing regarding the impoundment of her car, she will be appearing before a hearing officer working for the city. She will be wasting her time and money hiring a lawyer to help her. No one wins in these hearings except the city.
