How to Protect Yourself from ID FRAUD
Frequently Asked Questions
Can the police search my car for drugs without my permission? Don't they need a warrant?
While a warrant is often required before the police can conduct a search, there are many exceptions to the warrant requirement as well. The police know the law very well, and if they tell you they have the right to search your car, your person or your belongings, trying to obstruct them will likely only get you into more trouble. If their search was illegal, your attorney can deal with that fact later and have the evidence suppressed or get the case dismissed.
You are right not to give the police permission to search, though. In some cases, they may not have any cause to search unless you give them your consent. If the police ask your permission to search your car or your bag, etc. you are within your rights to respectfully decline.
