The United States and New York State Constitutions provide broad protections against unlawful searches and seizures. All too often, law enforcement officers forget or ignore these protections when they suspect a crime has been committed. If you were arrested as the result of an unlawful search, then the charges against you may be dropped, even if the arrest was based on evidence found that was not related to the original search. Issues regarding unlawful searches and seizures often arise in drug and weapons possession cases, as well as computer crimes, white collar crimes and sex crimes. If you are a family member has been arrested, it is important to contact an attorney as soon as possible so that questions regarding possible illegal searches can be investigated.
