What to Do and Say After Police Stop your Car in Pennsylvania or New Jersey

The majority of criminal cases involving the illegal possession of drugs, narcotics, firearms or other weapons start following a vehicle stop and search. Even if police recover contraband from a home, a place of business or a vehicle, the prosecution must still establish beyond a reasonable doubt actual or constructive possession of the item in question. Actual possession is when the item is found on a individual’s possessive person; whereas constructive possession means that it is found in the person’s area of immediate control.
