Did authorities conduct a search without a warrant? Are they intimidating you to make a confession based on the evidence they obtained illegally?
Warrantless searches are restricted under the Fourth Amendment of the United States Constitution, part of the Bill of Rights, which provides that, “It is the right of the people to secure their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures. This right shall not be violated, and no warrants should be issued, unless probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or items being seized.”
This amendment states that you have the right to protect your person, property, home, car, computer, and documents from searches by local and federal authorities, unless they have probable cause. If the authorities do have a warrant, then the warrant must specify what they are legally allowed to search. However, many law enforcement agents get overzealous, searching beyond the scope of the warrant, while others conduct searches without probably cause or a warrant altogether.
If a law enforcement agency conducted an illegal search and they are using their findings against you, then you need a lawyer that specializes in illegal, warrantless search and seizure cases. In criminal cases, illegal searches and seizures are the most important aspect of these cases. Many authorities will conduct illegal searches and seizures, and then use the evidence they obtain from the illegal search against you to obtain a confession or use the illegal search’s findings as evidence in a court of law. In these cases, you do not want to rely on a public defender, who may not be overly familiar in Fourth Amendment law. You need an expert illegal warrantless search lawyer who thoroughly understands your rights, and knows exactly how to fight for you. For example, a respectable illegal, warrantless search and seizure lawyer would immediately recognize that the evidence against you was obtained illegally and request a motion to suppress. The motion to suppress petitions the court to withhold any evidence against you that was obtained illegally, which effectively crushes the foundation of the prosecution’s case against you.
It is especially important to seek the counsel of an illegal warrantless search lawyer since often times authorities and the prosecutor do not have a strong case against you without the illegally-obtained evidence. Authorities will not tell you that the evidence against you was illegally obtained. So without an expert illegal warrantless search lawyer, you would be railroaded in court and potentially given a lengthy prison sentence that could have been avoided entirely.
The A.A. Castro Complex Litigation, Appeals & Negotiation, PLLC is here to fight these warrantless searches on your behalf. We will review your case details and take the necessary measures to ensure that your rights are upheld. We have extensive experience in recognizing laws that are often overlooked. For example, we know that local authorities will often take advantage of someone’s citizenship status, making them feel that because they may not be a legal citizen that the Fourth Amendment does not apply to them. However, the Fourth Amendment applies to everyone on U.S soil regardless of whether they are undocumented, or their visa has expired. We will stop at nothing to make sure you are properly defended, and that an illegal, warrantless search will not be used against you.
