This section contains information on searches and seizures, what the law requires from police, what constitutes "probable cause", and much more. Click on the links below to get started:

Dallas Search and Seizure Defense: The Charles Johnson Law Firm

Sometimes a person suspected of a crime does not realize that he has the right to refuse permission to search. At other times, the suspect may feel that he can bluff his way through the search by pretending that he has nothing to hide. In either case, law enforcement ends up with incriminating evidence, legally obtained, that might not have otherwise been available to them.

On the other hand, the assumption that the police need a warrant for every search can lead to a false sense of security there are times when a warrant is not required.

The many common misconceptions about search and seizure may seriously jeopardize your criminal defense. Schedule a free, no-obligation consultation with Attorney Charles Johnson for more clarification and guidance.
