Unlawful Search & Seizure Cases
We Defend Victims of Police Brutality and Civil Rights Violations
Have You Been Unlawfully Searched?
Did you know that in order to be searched or frisked, police officers need to have reasonable proof that you committed a crime? Any evidence obtained in an unlawful search and seizure- even if there was illegal evidence found – may not be permissible in court. That means, for instance, if you were found with illegal drugs, but there was not a reasonable motive to search you in the first place, the case can be dropped. You could also make a complaint that you were a victim of a false arrest.
Know Your Rights
The Fourth Amendment protects against unlawful searches and seizures, and also protects against police brutality. It states that the “right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”
