First of all, I hope that you son has not made any statements to the police. If he has, tell him to not say anymore. It is perfectly legal to have $1,000 in cash. The claim that they heard a gunshot is an interesting one. If this is not true, the police may not want to take the stand and make this claim. Even if they did hear a gun being fired, why did they believe that your son had anything to do with it. An attorney might enjoy cross examining the police in this case.
