Brooklyn Criminal Defense Attorney Discusses Police Finding Illegal Items in Vehicles
As an experienced Brooklyn Criminal Defense Attorney, clients often ask me about what happen when the police search their car and find illegal items. In the state of New York, if you’re pulled over by a police officer and they ask for your consent to search your motor vehicle, you can respectfully decline. You can say no.
If the police end up searching your car anyway and find contraband: marijuana, cocaine, heroin, a handgun, weapons, we can challenge that search as an unlawful search, so you never have to give your consent to a police officer to search your motor vehicle.
