I was with soime friends at a club. I went to bathroom and a guy put something in my hand. When I looked at what it was, there was a security right there and he took it from me and arested me. Said it was cocaine. I honestly don’t do drugs. I told him it wasn’t mine but he arrested me anyhow and the guy who gave it to me had left out of there. I don’t know what to do. A friend told me to try and get into a deferment program or somet5hing but I don’t feel like I( want to do anythning that will mess up my record.
Hire a good defense attorney in Guilford County. I do not practice in the area or I would offer to help.
Also, you said security “arrested” you? Security is typically not law enforcement with authority to arrest. What it sounds like is that you were detained by a private individual employed as a bouncer for the establishment. If the case goes to trial he would be a necessary witness along with the arresting law enforcement officer that ultimately arrived.
It sounds to me there are a number of issues here that a good defense attorney could poke holes into if you are willing to pay for their services. If you cannot afford a private attorney ask for a public defender – at the very least that will buy you time to hire your own counsel later if necessary. Not to say public defenders are not capable, usually they are very competent but unfortunately do not always have enough time to devote to your case.
A deferred prosecution program is an option if you have a clear record. A public defender could easily help you with this. Personally I would hire an experienced defense attorney to devote the time necessary to have the case dropped outright or fight the issues at trial.
