Re: Illegal Search and Seizure. What to Do, and Where to Find a Good Lawyer
Oh, since they weren't owned by an individual, I guess that makes everything alright.
=tylerdustin2008;544797]Yes I know this. I look bad. But I did what I did to learn and no other reason, if it was an indivduals items I would have not taken them.
Geez guy, stealing is stealing and you are an admitted thief. Your argument that, for some reason, it was not owned by an individual somehow makes it less egregious is simply foolish.
You need to deal with your criminal charges first. If you cannot get out of them based on an illegal search, you will lose in a suit against them for violation of your rights. If the search was illegal, there should be no problem getting the evidence excluded. If you cannot get it excluded based on a claim of an illegal search, a court has determined the search was legal.
But even though I may look bad. The Police should suffer the consequences for not following the law.
You won't. The possible award is not great enough to get the interest of an attorney willing to take it on contingency. When I said 30% of a dollar is not enough to interest an attorney, I was serious.
Now how might I find an attorney that would be willing to work with a contingency fee?
I am not an attorney and any advice is not to be construed as legal advice. You might even want to ignore my advice. Actually, there are plenty of real attorneys that you might want to ignore as well.
