how can a officer say that they had a complaint of someone selling drugs on the street corner but they just walk outside of their job
2 Answers from Attorneys
Perhaps the judge might not believe the officer had probable cause, but that might be difficult to prove. An experienced criminal defense attorney can help you evaluate the prosecution's case, any defenses that you might have, and any plea offer that might be made, so that you can decide whether to go to trial. Consider seeking a confidential consultation.
An officer can say whatever they want, whether it's true. That's why we have prosecutors, judges, juries and defense lawyers (in reverse order of likelihood) to tell them they've done something wrong.
