The judge charged me with what the plea was, then told me in open court that I was very naive. Is it legal for him to refuse a jury trial?

What is your question? Sometimes the impound people will agree to waive or reduce the fees to allow you to get the car out, but otherwise, your car is staying there until the fees are paid.
drugs found in a pill bottle in a purse and make up bag. I was the passenger of the vehicle and the driver had 2 Xanax on him. The car was mine. The needle cap is not in evidence.

Had to say without reviewing the complete record of the stop and what else was going on with the driver. May be ripe for a motion to suppress. The fact the car was yours doesn't necessarily mean anything since you weren't driving.

Get a lawyer as soon as possible regarding the house auction. There should be a court file number, and documents may indicate a lawyer who represents the bondsman, whom you should contact regarding payment.
