St Louis Search & Seizure Lawyers
When a crime has been committed, police officers are able to search the premises and belongings of a suspect if they have a search warrant. After producing the search warrant, they can seize necessary articles as evidence of the crime.
The warrant requirement has been incorporated in laws in order to safeguard the right to privacy. All citizens are entitled to claim this right and cannot be subjected to unreasonable searches and seizures.
When evidence is confiscated unlawfully it is inadmissible in courts. In case of “exigent circumstances,” officers can carry out a search and seizure without obtaining a warrant, provided there is probable cause and good faith.
