Sarcastic Comments Used Against Me? in Investigation, Arrest, & Trial Posted January 15, 2015 · Report reply Yes. Going to trial only requires probable cause that a crime was committed and that you probably were involved. Winning at trial requires evidence beyond a reasonable doubt. Since you have apparently only cleared the stage of a probable cause hearing there was probably not much that a PD could do. She/he might try to supress your statement before trial but it would not serve much purpose before a probable cause hearing. Also, I note you have added a charge of posession in your later explanation. I guess the police have more than a pipe. No?
