Riverbank City Councilman Jesse James White is due in court today for a hearing related to his May arrest on suspicion of possessing illegal drugs.
White is asking Stanislaus County Superior Court to drop the case.
He has alleged that he was targeted for a search because of his political activities.
White allegedly had small amounts of marijuana and cocaine in his house and car, a violation of his probation from an earlier "wet and reckless" driving conviction.
His hearing is set for 8:30 a.m. in the court's Department 6.
