POS courthouse

So I was in a company vehicle when a guy decided to throw some marijuana out window when we were being pulled over for speeding. The cop got it on video and obtained the small amount of weed. I am talking like a piece flattened out to and was smaller than a thumb nail. In Oklahoma the first offense is a misameanor then second it a felony. This is the guy's second or fourth.

I was supened to appear as a witness for the state in the prelim hearing this morning. I think it was the DA or prosecutor that failed to show up so they just sent up home and rescheduled for the 29th. I lost around $700 in pay because the rest of my crew was already on location. Company policy says you can't drive a personal vehicle to the work site. I understand that is part of my civil duty to appear before the court then asked. I don't have a problem with that. I don't like it when the person requesting my presences don't show and cost my time and money. I know I would have been punished for not appearing. I don't expect the state to re-emburse me for my lost pay. I want the bitch that didn't show to pay. It is her fault and her fault alone that the proceedings didn't happen, and now I will miss another day of work. I don't know if she realizes how much some people make in the oil field per day. It would take a while for her to pay off a company man's salary at $1500/day. She had the contact information of everybody involved. She should have let us know that she couldn't make it. sorry about the whining but I am kinda pissed.

That's ridiculous... And since it was someone of that court system they just shrug it off like it doesn't matter. I would ask if you could press charges for the losses but it probably wouldn't be worth it bc then you'd have court fees and more days off of work to appear.

Seems to me the officer has enough evidence not to drag you into it. Contact the D.A. and tell her your situation, she may not make you appear. It's worth a try...

Time will prey on you, and drag you thru hell....

I don't know. If it was any good. I have never smoked the stuff myself. I have been around it a fair bit. I don't even know that there was any in the truck. The guy in the back that was holding sleep all of the 2 hour ride home. The drive tried to hit the pipe on the console a and it was empty. He even pull the end cap off and tried hitting the resin but couldn't get much off that. Dude in the back woke up about 10 minutes before we pulled in to town. We past a cop running 82 in 65. By the time the cop caught up we were at the 4 way stop. I didn't even know he was back there til the drive said "I think we are being pulled over." The cop was on our bumper at the stop sign. So we turned right to get out of the road to parked on main street (small town around pop. 800). While we were turning or parking the guy in the back threw his shit out. The cop said he thought it was somebody getting ride of their dip (skoal or copenhagen) til when he got close and saw it blow in the wind.

The arresting officer said he didn't know why I was getting dragged into this. He has the video and the physical evidence. It should be a pretty cut and dry case. He confessed it was his at the traffic stop.

arresting someone for a thumb nail of weed WOW This is losing money on so many levels. backing up the court system, case load of the ADA, real criminals spending more time in jails as opposed to having their cases heard, your pay etc. all over a thumb nail of weed.

Florida has a poor job market! :headshake
