What if officers entered my home without consent?
Since the privacy of your home is protected under your Forth Amendment rights, police officers may only enter and search your home under very specific circumstances. In most cases, you must be presented with a valid search warrant before officers may legally search your home, though there are some exceptions to this general rule. If an officer illegally entered and searched your home, however, any collected evidence will fall under the exclusionary rule and will be inadmissible in court.
If you believe that your rights were violated by officers who illegally search your home, the Milwaukee criminal defense attorneys at Hart Powell, S.C., may be able to help. To discuss your case with one of our attorneys, please call our Milwaukee offices at (414) 271-9595 today.
