Can my ticket be dismissed if they said no personal and vehicle search and they did both?
I got pulled over for my taillight being out. They went back to their car to run my license and when they returned they asked me to step to the back of my vehicle. To which they then asked me if they could search my vehicle and I said yes. 1 officer searched my truck while the other officer searched me. The 1 that searched me asked if his partner would find anything and I said yes a roach in a cigarette pack if there was anything in my truck. His partner then came back with the cigarette packs with the roaches and papers and told me that I would be getting a ticket. He asked me if I had ever been arrested for anything else besides the possession charge that I already told him about and I told him no. He proceeded to run my record and found out I told him the truth. Then the other officer brought me my ticket that I signed. Upon arrival at my house where I had time to look over the ticket I found that he had said no personal search and no vehicle search which they did both. He also put that initial violation/reason for stop as possession or delivery of drug paraphernalia and the reason he pulled me over was because of my taillight being out which was marked as a warning on my ticket. With all this being said my question is can I get my ticket dismissed since 3 items on the ticket were incorrectly marked? I would appreciate an answer as soon as possible if anyone is able to since my court date is august 20 2013. Also what legal terms I should use to get it dismissed and possibly not even have to take it to trial if that's even an option. Not real knowledgeable in the legal department so not real sure. I appreciate any help that is given.
