Searches And Seizure
In order to obtain evidence to charge a suspect of a drug crime, Law enforcement officials employ a wide range of tactics including informants, surveillance, undercover police activity, and search and seizures. Search and seizures are one of the most challenged issues and are often the center of a defense case. The Fourth Amendment protects a person from unreasonable search and seizures and if this is violated, the evidence can be inadmissible, culminating in a weak prosecution case and possible dismissal.
