What Rights do You Give Up When You consent to a Search

consent to a Search

First let me qualify a few things; while I served in Law Enforcement for many years, I am not an attorney and have been retired for over 20 years.  Even though I try to keep up on the law, I am not an expert and you may want to check the validity of the things that I am saying with your own attorney before you refuse to consent to a Search.

Remember there are only five ways in which the police can legally enter your home.

  1. A search warrant. If they come to your home with a search warrant, they are coming in, do not attempt to block their entry, all you will do is pick up charges of interfering and resisting.
