You have a constitutional right (4th Amendment) to be free from unreasonable search and seizure of you, your home and your belongings. Any time you are asked to consent to search or seizure you should say "no", and call a Kansas criminal defense attorney. That may feel uncomfortable, but it is your right. Granting permission oftentimes waives your rights.
Don't help Kansas law enforcement do their job. If you refuse, in order to proceed, law enforcement must seek a warrant. In Johnson County, Kansas, and across the nation, the following requirements need to be met:
There are special circumstances where warrants are not required.
A skilled Kansas criminal defense attorney will review your discovery file to find where your rights may have been violated. In instances of violation the "Exclusionary Rule" may apply. Motions will then be filed with the court suggesting the fruits of the search/seizure (ex. drugs, sex crimes, etc.) should prevented from being used in your trial. Where successful, the lack of evidence may mean a dismissal of, or reduction in, the case against you. Let us help you. Call Attorney T. Morton today 913-602-7288.
