Regardless of the evidence that the police have against you, if they obtained it in a manner that violates your constitutional rights, the court will exclude that evidence. Criminal defense attorneys at Alekman DiTusa, LLC diligently investigate and challenge evidence obtained through violations of your rights, such as:
Illegal search and seizure: Illegal search and seizure violations include searching a premises without a search warrant, not having probable cause for a search warrant, or searching for evidence in a manner that is outside the scope of the search warrant.
Lack of probable cause: Police need probable cause to obtain a search warrant and make an arrest.
Lack of reasonable suspicion: Police need reasonable suspicion to stop a vehicle.
Miranda rights and Fifth Amendment violations: When police arrest you and take you into custody, they must read you the Miranda warning, which explains that you have the right to remain silent and the right to have an attorney present. Evidence obtained through illegal custodial interrogation may not be used as evidence against you.
