Significance of Search and Seizure in Drug Crime Cases
Issues related to illegal search and seizure are important in many drug crime cases. The police must demonstrate probable cause before obtaining a warrant to search a suspect's home, car or business. They must also obtain a search warrant to examine a computer, cell phone or other electronic device. Attorney Emkey has argued the validity of law enforcement search warrants many times as a prosecutor. He now uses his experience to argue on behalf of clients whose rights were violated by an illegal search and seizure.
