A: Many times people consent to a search of their vehicle when requested by law enforcement. If a party consents to the search, it is difficult to be successful on an argument that law enforcement didn't have authority to search the vehicle when the party consented to the search. If you have been charged with a crime, you should contact a criminal defense attorney immediately. Depending on the facts of your case, you may be able to keep the evidence out by a motion to suppress or other procedural motion.
