All of us have a constitutional right, under the 4th amendment against unreasonable searches and seizures. And typically, that comes up the most in drug cases. Often times its drug cases during a traffic stop. Whether an officer violated a person’s right in finding any sorts of drugs or anything like that. So one of the first things that I look at when a client comes to me in a drug possession case is how was the search conducted. I study the police report right away. Because what the police and the prosecutor might think was a proper search, under case law, may not have been. Because I might be able to find case law or even the same case law that applies the law to the facts of the case that I’m looking at, or that I’ve been retained to take. To point out, that in this case, the search was unreasonable. And if im able to do that, which im doing my best to look for, for my client, then we work to have that case thrown out.
