Were you charged with drug crimes after a dog sniffed your car?

Wisconsin residents, as well as those in all other states, enjoy a right to privacy. It is a right protected under the Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. For the court to rule that police violated this right, a criminal defendant must show that he or she had the right to reasonably expect privacy in a particular situation and that said privacy was invaded. Things can get complicated regarding drug-sniffing dogs and suspected drug crimes.

Wisconsin police say they found marijuana in someone's home

If a Wisconsin resident answers his or her door and finds police officers outside wanting to come in to have a look around, he or she is protected by the Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution against unlawful searches or seizures. Police must have a valid warrant to search a person's vehicle, residence or body. There are exceptions to the rule, such as if a police officer claims to witness a crime as it unfolds. One particular resident's home was recently searched by police, resulting in an alleged discovery of large amounts of marijuana.
