Unlawful Search & Seizure Attorneys – Chicago
The Fourth Amendment of the United States constitution puts down strict guidelines for searches and seizures by the police. Basically, search is said to be an action that infringes a person’s privacy as is considered reasonable by the society. Seizure is an action that interferes with a person’s interests in possessing that property. If the police breach the stipulated guidelines and limitations, their action is considered unlawful.
If you feel that your privacy has been breached through search and seizure, or if the police has searched or seized your possessions in an unlawful matter, get in touch with the Law Office of Robert Kerr, LLC. We’ll take the matter to court and ensure that you get justice for the harassment you face.
Unlawful search and seizure is a complex matter.
The police need to have a warrant in order to search or seize possessions. However, the entire matter is not as simple as it sounds. In some situations, police have the right to search or seize without a warrant. They can raid your home, vehicles or office and conduct a search even without a warrant but there are strict guidelines for these searches as well.
A partly vague phrase like “legitimate expectation of privacy” complicates matters. For example, installing a camera in the restroom of your workplace in order to ‘search’ you is considered an offense. However, raiding your vehicle without a warrant to find drugs might not be considered a breach of privacy.
When such incidents occur, the court considers the situation in totality and decides on the validity of the police action. If the reason for search and seizure is considered invalid, the police can be punished as per the constitution.
