Illegal Search

Posted by Forreste Markowitz | Jul 08, 2024 | 0 Comments

⚖️ Know Your Rights - Officers will park behind your vehicle because you look suspicious, begin a conversation with you and ask you for consent to search your car. You should say no, ask to speak to a lawyer and ask if you may leave.

To encourage you to consent to their search request, they may threaten to handcuff you or make you wait for a drug dog to arrive. Officers want to tell the court that you consented to the search request so they don't have to explain why they conducted an otherwise illegal search.

Don't help the officer violate your rights.  Got questions about an illegal search?  Give us a call for a free consultation. ☎️
