questions & answers

Question: If you get pulled over. You tell the officer no they can not search your car can they still do it? And also is there any way they could search your house because of that?

Answer:

The answer can depend on the circumstances in which you are being pulled over for. For example, an officer can search a car if he or she has a warrant, consent or probable cause.  For the search of a house, it again depends on the specific circumstances as to what is required for a search.

To find out how cases and the law apply to your situation, you may want to consult with an attorney.
