Defense Attorney for Unlawful Search & Seizure Charges

Was Your Computer Searched?

The Fourth Amendment protects individuals from unreasonable government searches and seizures. You are not required to give permission to the police to search your property. If the police have a warrant, they are not allowed to exceed the scope of the warrant. In many investigations, law enforcement agents will want to examine the files on your computer. If a warrant does not include your computer, you are not required to let them see the computer or its contents. You need to call a lawyer immediately after denying the police the ability to search your computer to protect your freedom.

To search your property or belongings, the police must do one of the following:

  • Request and receive your permission to do a search of your property
  • Have a signed search warrant that allows them to search your property
  • Be able to demonstrate "exigent circumstances," which necessitate them entering the property without a warrant
