Anything You Whisper Can and Will Be Used Against You in a Court of Law

After pulling over a speeding car in Northampton, Massachusetts State Police troopers spotted drug paraphernalia in the car and searched it. They found a small quantity of heroin and crack cocaine, and arrested the car’s owner, Carrie Tutsock, 24, and her two passengers, Jordan Johnson, 26, and Ethan Richards, 26. While transporting the trio to jail, a trooper heard Tutsock whisper to the others, “I don’t think they found all the stuff in the car.” That prompted a much more thorough search of the car; detectives found 230 baggies of heroin. The three’s possession charges were upgraded to felony possession with the intent to distribute. (RC/Springfield Republican) ...I don’t think the two guys have had their say yet.
