can i get this case thrown out?

Location: Alabama  |  Law type: Criminal defense attorney

Woke up, after taking a quick nap at a gas pump at a station on my way back home, to police searching through my car, my phone, and even grabbed my backpack out the backseat! Apparently someone had tried to wake me up and i didnt budge so they called prichard p.d. i was not drunk or even fucked up in anyway just tired and didnt want to drive off the road or hurt someone. I never gave them consent to search anything and they were even going through my messages on my girls phone till i woke up and said hell nah. (Her phone was in her car she forgot to grab it before i left to go to my friends that night) then i woke up to this ongoing search and pitts and sons pulling up to tow the car they called a 1\2 oz of weed  marijuana 1st?? and i had a xanax and a little cocaine which they also charged me with also a public intox and paraphanelia because of a chemistry scale??I dont think i was read my rights and they didnt even bother to wake me up before searching my car and the weed charge being a felony instead of the misdameanor it shouldve been, made me have to sit in metro for 3 days till i could get a bond hearing.... this happened last wednesday and my first court date is today can i get this case thrown out? what do i do

A criminal defense lawyer is a lawyer (mostly barristers) specializing in the defense of individuals and companies charged with criminal activity. Some criminal defense lawyers are privately retained, while others are employed by the various jurisdictions with criminal courts for appointment to represent indigent persons; the latter are generally called public defenders. The terminology is imprecise because each jurisdiction may have different practices with various levels of input from state and federal law or consent decrees. Some jurisdictions use a rotating system of appointments with judges appointing a private practice attorney or firm for each case. Source:
