How will an attorney help an illegal search and seizure case?

A Phoenix criminal defense lawyer is going to be incredibly beneficial for a suspected illegal search and seizure case. These are procedural matters, and most people charged with crimes lack the technical and legal expertise to recognize when a search was conducted illegally. A Phoenix illegal search and seizure attorney can:

  • Obtain all documents and footage used in your case that shows how the evidence was collected.
  • Handle all communication and negotiation with law enforcement and prosecutors in an effort to get the charges against you reduced or dismissed.
  • Work to have any illegally obtained evidence thrown out so that it cannot be used against you with charging decisions or at trial.
  • Negotiate with prosecutors to obtain a favorable plea agreement or less serious charges.
  • Prepare your case for trial. If your attorney determines that you have been the victim of an illegal search and seizure, this is evidence the jury will want to see.

Defining illegal searches and seizures

Anytime law enforcement officials are engaging in searches and seizures, there are a number of rules that apply meant to minimize the risk of any illegal search and seizure. First and foremost, the Fourth Amendment to the US Constitution protects those accused of crimes from illegal searches and seizures. The language in the Constitution is meant to protect those accused of crimes from government misconduct, including:

  • Police tampering with evidence
  • Police planting evidence
  • Police searching your home without a warrant
  • Improperly obtaining a confession
  • Improper detentions
  • Other rights violations

Additionally, there are hundreds of court cases that further define what an illegal search and seizure looks like. As technology continues to evolve, so do the rules involving searches and seizures.
