Understanding Your Fourth Amendment Rights
The Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution is designed to protect people’s privacy. It places limits on the power of law enforcement personnel to search people and their property, seize objects and contraband, and make arrests. In other words, you are protected from unreasonable searches and seizures by state or federal law enforcement agencies.
It is important to understand that the Fourth Amendment does permit searches and seizures that are reasonable.
The police may legally search your property and seize evidence if:
- They have obtained a warrant from a judge based on probable cause to believe they can find evidence that you committed a crime
- The particular circumstances justify the search without a warrant first being issued
- The evidence is in plain view
- They see an illegal act occurring outside of your home
- They have arrested you for a crime
- You freely and voluntarily agree to a search without being coerced or tricked into doing so
Our skilled criminal defense lawyer may be able to show that the police conducted an unlawful search and seizure. If a court determines that an unreasonable search occurred, any evidence that was obtained through the search cannot be used as direct evidence against you. This, however, does not mean that the case will be dropped completely. If the prosecutor has enough legally obtained evidence, the case will continue.
