How can my son beat a drug possession charge?

Location: Elberton  |  Law type: Criminal defense attorney

My son was in a vehicle with a friend of his. This friend had asked my son to ride with him to go see his girlfriend in another town. My son did get in the car willingly. My son said he was bored sitting around the house and was going along for the ride. Upon returning back to town to drop my son off they passed a deputy. The deputy immediately made a uturn and got behind their vehicle.  My son's friend was the driver and was driving his mothers car.  The friend got nervous when the deputy got behind him so he pulled the car into a driveway of someone he didn't know.  The deputy pulled in behind them. The deputy asked the friend who lives at this residence. The friend told the deputy he didnt know. That he was looking for his dog. The deputy asked were either on probation.  They both answered yes. The deputy had the friend give him his license so he could run it. At this time 2 more deputies were pulling up to assist. The deputy came back and told the friend his licenses were suspended for non payment of child support and he had a warrant out for his arrest.  The deputy handcuffed the friend and put him under arrest. A deputy then asked my son what they had been doing.  He told the deputy what they had done. Then the deputy asked if my son had anything on him. My son answered no. The deputy asked my son several times if he had drugs on him or were there any drugs in the vehicle.  My son told him he didnt have anything on him and that wasn't his car but he hadn't seen any drugs in the car.  The officer then proceeded to search the vehicle while another deputy stood with my son. The officer found a bag with drug residue under the driver's seat. When the deputy asked whose bag it was both my son and the friend denied it was theirs. They both were arrested for possession.  This is my son's first arrest for possession but it is this friend's second arrest. While going in front of a judge for bond this friend asked the judge to set a bond so he could go to rehab because he has a drug addiction.  If this friend is saying he has a drug addiction and the drug residue bag was in his car under his seat how can my son still be charged for possession?

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: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Criminal_defense_lawyer
