Police are human and they make mistakes just like the rest of us. Ilegal searches by police may result in your case being dismissed. Fortunately, the U.S. and Texas Constitutions require police to respect your rights when you are pulled over, arrested, and searched. Search and seizure law applies to your car, body, and home.
Search and seizure law is one of the most complicated areas of the law. One reason it is so complicated is because it is constantly changing and evolving. Evidence obtained illegally is not admissible against you in court and should be kept out.
Although there are many exceptions for police to have a warrant to search you, the police still have to follow the law.
