Search and Seizure: Drug Crimes
Michigan Drug Crime Lawyer
Searches and the collection of evidence by law enforcement often play a crucial role in Michigan drug crime cases. If the police conduct an unlawful search and seizure and this results in criminal charges against you, your attorney may be able to expose this and file a motion to suppress the evidence that was obtained in the search. Under the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, Americans are protected from unreasonable search and seizures by law enforcement. To conduct a lawful search, law enforcement must have probable cause to conduct the search. This may be in the form of a search warrant or may be established because law enforcement has well-founded reason to believe that a criminal offense is occurring at that time.
Talk to our Michigan drug attorney at Freedman Law Group today if you are facing drug crime charges and believe that you were the victim of an unlawful search and seizure. Any evidence obtained in an unreasonable search and seizure cannot be used as direct evidence against a defendant in criminal court, and at times this may result in a successful negotiation for lesser charges or in the dismissal of a defendant's case altogether.
