A Raleigh Criminal Lawyer’s Challenge: Is Fido’s Sniff Performance Up To Snuff?

“In these cases a professional Raleigh criminal lawyer will argue that the police did not have “probable cause” to conduct a warrantless search violating an individual’s rights under the Fourth Amendment. To put it simply, an officer must have legal reason to believe that a person may be committing a crime.

Police K9 drug detection units are used to provide such “probable cause.” If a dog responds or “cues” on a suspect’s person or property, the officer is justified to search without a warrant. The suspect can protest, but it is not likely to be effective since most states have given this power to law enforcement.”
