Defending You Against Illegal Search And Seizure

The Fourth Amendment protects the right to privacy and the right to freedom from arbitrary invasion. In short, law enforcement must follow very strict rules in gathering evidence to build a criminal case against you. If you feel your rights were violated during the course of a police investigation, do not hesitate to discuss your matter with an experienced criminal defense attorney.

For more than 20 years, Dusek Law has provided exceptional client services for individuals in both North Dakota and Minnesota. Headquartered in East Grand Forks, our lawyers are prepared to take your case and aggressively defend you no matter the complexity of your charges.

Holding Law Enforcement Accountable For Their Actions

Illegal search and seizure becomes a crucial factor in criminal defense cases when law enforcement officers do not adhere to the restrictions placed on them during an investigation. The Fourth Amendment prohibits generalized searches unless a situation exists that would place the public in danger. Typically, the police must have a warrant signed by a judge that describes the conditions of the search. Additionally, the police must have probable cause to perform the search. This means that they must be able to show clear evidence leading to the necessity of the search. The warrant must also detail the location of the search and the items that law enforcement will seize.
