Unlawful Search and Seizure in Solano County
If law enforcement has conducted a search and confiscated any of your property or anything found on your property in connection with a criminal case or investigation, you can work with an attorney in order to have this property returned or excluded from being used as evidence against you. Depending upon how the property was found and collected by law enforcement, this may have been an unlawful search and seizure. If this is true, your rights were violated and legal action can be taken by a criminal defense lawyer to remedy the situation.
If an unreasonable search and seizure is performed and this uncovers evidence that is later to be used in a criminal case, your attorney can actually move to have this evidence suppressed so it cannot be used as direct evidence against you. Under the Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, you and your property are protected from unreasonable searches and seizures.
