Search & Seizure Issues

Bucks County Search and Seizure Lawyer

Whether you have been arrested for drug crimes, child pornography, or burglary, you still have rights protected by the Fourth Amendment of the United States Constitution. At the Bucks County law offices of Attorney Niels C. Eriksen, we have seen reckless use of search and seizure without probable cause. We will not let information gathered illegally put you behind bars.

The 4th Amendment of the United States Constitution: The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Unlawful search and seizure is the single most important arena of defense in any criminal case. Search and seizure issues can be the grounds for dismissal, the suppression of evidence, a reduction in number or level or charges, or provide important leverage for plea negotiations. From strip searches to home invasions, we will investigate search and seizures involving any type or property, including:

  • Drugs
  • Guns
  • Cars
  • Home computers
  • Child pornography
  • Phone taps
  • Internet records

Warrantless Searches

Police often overstep their authority for the greater good, but without probable cause, the evidence they collect will not be admissible in court. Even if you gave consent, if you were in any way threatened or manipulated during a warrantless search, you may have been the victim of an illegal search and seizure. We will take a close look at your case to make sure no illegal evidence sees the courtroom.

Search Warrants

With informants, witnesses, and drug addicts often motivated to lie, many search warrants are not based on reliable information. If police collected information on a warrant that never should have been issued, the evidence they collect could be dismissed. Additionally, cops often go too far in legal searches or act on expired warrants.
