AGGRESSIVE CRIMINAL DEFENSE
KNOW YOUR RIGHTS. WHAT SHOULD YOU DO...
IF POLICE COME TO YOUR HOME
  • If the police knock and ask to enter your home, you do not have to let them in unless they have a warrant signed by a judge (ask to see it). However, if they can see an illegal item in plain view from outside the house, then they have a legitimate reason to enter without a warrant.
  • In some emergency situations (like when a person is screaming for help inside, or when police are chasing someone) officers are allowed to enter and search your home without a warrant.
  • If you are arrested in your home or in your office, the police may search you and the “grabbable area” immediately surrounding you or where illegal items are in plain view.
