Search and Seizure Issues
Police officers are given certain liberties in the investigation, pursuit and arrest of those suspected of drug crimes. However, this does not give law enforcement officials the authority to do whatever they please in order to “make the case.” Unfortunately, illegal police tactics are still used every day, and many times these instances involve search and seizure violations.
With very few exceptions, police need probable cause and/or a court-issued warrant to search for drugs in your car, your home, your property or on your person. When law enforcement officers do not follow these rules, they violate an individual’s constitutional rights. If you were the victim of an illegal search and seizure and were subsequently charged with a drug crime, the Law Offices of Ruben Ortiz can help.
