What happens if I plead not guilty in municipal court and then recharged in district court only hours later?

All my charges are misdemeanors and I believe 2 of the charges where obtained by illegal search and seizure seeing as how I was pulled over for driving on a suspended drivers license. I have the ignition interlock installed in the vehicle I was driving. It was not my vehicle and I told the officer as much along with locking the doors of the vehicle and he then took the keys and began searching the car and my purse. I'm unsure how driving on a suspended drivers license (knowingly or not) constitutes searching my father's car. Neither my dad or myself have ever had drug charges. There were no drugs or paraphernalia in sight and the officer had already stated I could not call to have the vehicle to be picked up. The officer stated he was calling the tow truck which means if there was anything to be destroyed it would have to be gotten out of the impound before that could be done.

    I do not yet see justification for a car search. If they cannot justify the search, then the evidence gets suppressed (you win). There is no physical evidence of driving on a suspended license, so I am uncertain what they were search for also.

    Once you are driving on a suspended license you will be arrested. IF you are the only person at the scene, the police have the absolute authority to tow the vehicle. Before they tow the vehicle, there is a mandatory inventory search. That is the law. Your feelings about the law, which you clearly do not know mean absolutely nothing.
