Re: Can Premises Be Searched After the Service of an Arrest Warrant
I had an acquaintance that was also a cop. He said it was typical for the police to arrest the party and take the longest route out of the house. They claimed a right to search basically anything within a reasonable reach due to regard for safety, something along the line of what a Terry search or pat down would allow. Don't know if it had ever been challenged but he seemed to suggest it hadn't, as far as he knew.
Carl, any comment on such an action?
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.
