It also includes up-to-date webinars on legal information produced by CLEO, including links to webinar recordings and presentation materials. The police can search you and your immediate surroundings without a warrant if they arrest you. If a person is arrested in an apartment, the police may conduct a “preventive search” of the apartment to conduct a “superficial visual inspection” of the places where an accomplice might be hiding. To do so, the police must have reasonable grounds to believe that an accomplice may be nearby. Based on what is regularly shown on television, many people expect the police, once they are handcuffed, to immediately inform them of their Miranda rights. Many people believe that if they are arrested and do not “read their rights”, their case will be rejected. False. If the police don`t read a suspect`s rights but never ask questions, then probably no harm has been done. On the other hand, if the police do not read a suspect`s rights and question him, then there is a strong argument that the police and prosecutors cannot use anything from the suspect as evidence against the suspect in the trial. If you are taken to jail, the police may conduct an “inventory search” of the items you have with you. This search may include your car if it is held by the police.

The purpose of an inventory search is to make a list of all the personal items inside the vehicle. October 5, 2022 • Today`s show was not inspired by the novel 50 Shades of Grey, which sold around 150 million copies and led to a mega-hit of the same name. rather, by two local criminal cases. In both cases, the couples were involved in long-term relationships involving perverse or even violent sex. A member of the couple later decided that it had not been consensual. The other member of the couple was serving a long prison sentence.

November 9, 2022 • Last night`s elections left us in uncertainty at both the local and national levels. Tonight, the first part of a two-part series is about the election. In the first part, we will examine uncertainty and fear. How did we get to the point where, in national elections, pundits predict so inaccurately with such confidence? How can practices such as ranking in local elections delay the result and change the result? In the second part, we will look at specific issues, the legislative agenda, access to votes and, again, where we are. For both programs, we look forward to your contribution. Please call toll free at (866) 798-8255. If you think you are being discriminated against because of your age or disability, you can contact a lawyer to protect your legal rights.

In the United States, criminal suspects are granted a number of important rights when stopped, interrogated, and searched by law enforcement officers. In 1966, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in the landmark case of Miranda v. Arizona stating that whenever a person is taken into custody, they must be informed of their Fifth Amendment right not to make self-incriminating statements before being questioned. Thanks to Miranda, five things must be said to anyone in custody before being questioned: Your Legal Rights shares legal information resources created by Ontario not-for-profit organizations. For more than 30 years, Your Legal Rights has been providing KALW auditors with free legal information and advice. We continue the work of the show`s founding host, Chuck Finney, who passed away in February 2018. San Mateo Assistant District Attorney Chuck Finney speaks with experts on a variety of legal issues for the San Francisco Bay Area. You have the right to a trial by a jury of peers. The police can search your property without a search warrant if you consent to the search. Consent must be given freely and voluntarily, and you cannot be forced or tempted to give it. “I advise my clients to politely exercise their right to remain silent when questioned by the police and when I am not present.

Even if you think you`re helping your cause, too often I`ve found suspects unknowingly revealing information that can then be used as evidence against them. Below are websites that provide more information about federal and state laws to protect your legal rights. They also tell you how to file a complaint. There are also very good contacts with agencies and organizations that can support you for free, which is called advocacy. It doesn`t matter if an interrogation takes place at a police station, at the crime scene, on a busy downtown street, or within your four walls. If a person is in custody (i.e. “not to be released”), the police must issue a Miranda warning if they want to question the suspect and use the suspect`s answers as evidence in court. If you lose in court (and in some cases, plead guilty), you have the right to appeal your case, and if you can`t afford a lawyer, you have the right to a court-appointed lawyer on appeal. The police are not allowed to search your vehicle unless you consent to the search or there are reasonable grounds to suspect that the vehicle contains evidence, illegal items or stolen property. A “stop and search” occurs when a police officer stops a person for questioning and conducts a search limited to weapons just to protect himself. A police officer can arrest and beat a person if he or she has “reasonable grounds to suspect” that the person is involved in criminal activity.

This is an easier test for a police officer than the “probable cause” standard required for an arrest. If, during the search of weapons, the police detect suspicious packaging that the officer knows is often used to transport illegal drugs or other illegal substances, the initial suspicion may become sufficient grounds for a more intensive search of the person`s body and clothing. Jeff Hayden, a lawyer from the Bay Area, speaks with experts on a variety of legal topics, with public participation: (415) 841-4134. The First Amendment protects your right to assemble and express your opinions through protest. Here`s what you need to know about your border rights. Learn more about your rights on campus and what to do if school rules violate those rights. Legal rights are laws that protect people. There are many types of laws. Laws that apply to everyone in the United States are called federal laws. Some are based on the U.S. Constitution.

Laws that apply to everyone in a state are called laws or state statutes. These may vary depending on the state you live in. The police cannot use evidence from an illegal search to find other evidence. If it is a trial, you have the right to present evidence of your innocence and to have state witnesses cross-examined by your lawyer. The search and seizure provisions of the Fourth Amendment relate to privacy. To honor this freedom, the Fourth Amendment protects against “inappropriate” searches and seizures by state or federal law enforcement agencies. On the other hand, “reasonable” searches by government officials are not illegal. While citizens of Delaware and the United States have the right to privacy and freedom from government interference, there is a limit to that privacy. In practice, this means that if the police have a probable reason to do so, they can override your privacy concerns and search your body and clothes, your home, garage, car, office, personal or business documents, and bank statements. The police cannot conduct a warrantless search when you have a reasonable expectation of privacy, unless one of the exceptions to the arrest warrant applies. If evidence was obtained through an inappropriate or illegal search, the police cannot use it against you in legal proceedings.

This is called the “exclusion rule.” You have the right to use subpoenas requiring witnesses to appear in court and to preserve and present evidence in support of your defence. People with disabilities face discrimination, segregation and exclusion. But federal disability rights laws offer protection. Understand your rights and eligibility for DACA. You have the right to refuse to make statements. If you don`t have a lawyer, ask for one. If you have a lawyer, do not make statements without first talking to your lawyer. Be careful when sending emails, text messages or written statements. I advise my clients not to talk to anyone about their case – family or friends – either in person or on the phone.

Homelessness has become one of the most visible and discussed issues not only in the San Francisco Bay Area, but across the country. Last week, Governor Newsom signed the “CARE Act” — billed as both a new paradigm for mental health treatment and at least part of the solution to homelessness — allowing family members, first responders and “others” to ask the courts to create and implement treatment plans for people presumed to have mental illness. The solution to homelessness – Civil rights groups and homeless advocates have suggested that the Care Act could obscure a hidden agenda.
