People in Iowa City may believe that criminal defense is the kind of thing that only other people need to worry about. If a person is honest and stays out of trouble, they don't have to worry about such things, right? The truth is, many people find themselves caught up in the criminal justice system unexpectedly. When this happens, it can be very important to have a strong criminal defense strategy.
Not long ago, a previous post here discussed searches and seizures and the rules law enforcement officials must follow in conducting them. If law enforcement officials do not follow the rules and then try to introduce evidence gained from the search and seizure, it may be possible to have the court rule that the evidence is inadmissible. This can happen if the police don't have a proper warrant or if they exceed the scope of the warrant, for example.
