I gave consent to search my vehicle but they just took my purse from me as I was stepping outta my car & without asking or anything, proceeded to search it, which led to a drug charge. But I feel as if they violated my rights.
If they did not have probable cause to search the vehicle or your purse, but you gave consent to search the car, there may be an issue with consent to search your purse. Contact a local defense attorney to discuss the case in more detail.

Alot of times the LEOs either request Charges to be issued sometime after the Search Warrant Execution, or they try to work out a Sentence to bring to the Court for entry. Very often the citizens searched cooperate with the LEOs to incriminate others, and receive lighter Sentences therefor.

The Search Warrant should have a case number at the Clerks Office, the police would also file a Return of Search Warrant detailing the items removed. The return is to be filed in the same case as the search warrant

what is considered reasonable? is a Saturday or Sunday morning at 10am a reasonable time for the real estate agents to show a property if said property is currently being rented? is it legal for the tennants to only allow that it be shown M-F only?
Unless you stipulated otherwise in the lease agreement, you can basically show the house whenever you want, provided that you give advance notice and the hours are reasonable. Having a showing during normal business hours is perfectly acceptable, weekday or weekend. Be nice about the process and...Read more »
