well it’s important to remember that
00:05
there are a number of different
00:07
constitutional rights that the police
00:09
have to afford you and the remedies for
00:12
their violating those rights are
00:14
different sometimes clients come into my
00:16
office and say I think the police
00:17
violated my Miranda rights can you have
00:20
the case thrown out well it’s not a
00:22
magic bullet if the police have violated
00:24
your Miranda rights we can get your
00:27
statements thrown out but that leaves
00:29
all of the other evidence in the case
00:31
and that’s why they arrested you so that
00:33
you could make the statements in the
00:34
first place
00:35
a very important thing your lawyer can
00:36
do for you is take a look at search and
00:39
seizure issues Fourth Amendment issues
00:41
related to whether the police had the
00:43
right to be where they were when they
00:45
found the evidence inside your house
00:47
inside your car inside your office if
00:50
the police did not have a warrant to be
00:53
in your house or didn’t have probable
00:55
cause to search your vehicle then the
00:57
courts will suppress any evidence that
00:59
they got inside those places where they
01:02
weren’t supposed to be and that can be
01:04
devastating to a criminal case for the
01:06
prosecution so you need someone who is
01:09
experienced to figure out a lot of the
01:12
nuances of Fourth Amendment
01:14
jurisprudence which is changing all the
01:15
time
