Q: Ok I just got a reply from a question that my neighbors were telling the cops I was a crackhead
Two yrs clean now they dropped a bag of crack in front of house they live downstairs and gave it to the cops saying it was mine what do I do?
A: If you have been charged with a crime, contact an attorney immediately. Your theory is wobbly. No matter what, I would think moving somewhere else may help as well.
Mike Branum agrees with this answer
I almost made Mr. Cramer's suggestion to your last post - moving should be on your short list of options. I know housing is tough right now if it is even remotely as expensive in SLC as it is down here in southern UT. That being said, being charged with a crime is expensive too.
Good job on staying clean; keep up the good work. The police are going to need more than your neighbors' claims to charge you. If it's not your bag (not insinuating it is) and your fingerprints are not on the bag or its contents (I'm assuming they're not), then you probably have nothing to worry about.
Steer clear of the neighbors. Stay clean. Move if you get the chance. You cannot fix stupid (yes, I'm calling your neighbors stupid) and you very seldom have legal recourse against it.
