If your home or property has been searched by the police, you need to talk to a criminal defense attorney to understand your rights and review your exposure to potential charges. In general the police cannot search your home without your consent, a warrant, or exigent circumstances. If you were not present at the time of the search and someone who did not have legal authority permitted the officers to enter your home, you may have a civil rights claim as well as some grounds to potentially suppress evidence obtained by the illegal search. It’s important to remember that you have rights and those rights deserve to be protected.
