A judge in Kentwood, Michigan can order a search warrant, which will allot police the go-ahead to enter into any specific premises in an attempt to gather possible evidence. You’re probably not surprised to find out that the police are not in the habit of announcing when they will serve a search warrant, and when it happens, most people are quite surprised indeed. They’re left with very little time to consider how they should react, what they should say, and what their rights are when the enforcement teams are suddenly at the door demanding entry.
If you ever find yourself in a situation where a search warrant is being executed, the most important thing to do is to remain calm and keep quiet. Understand that you have the right to professional legal counsel, and that you have the right to say nothing until you consult with that council. If the police serve you with a search warrant, don’t hesitate to call the no-nonsense criminal defense lawyers at the David G. Moore Law Firm. Attorney Moore is a former prosecutor, and he knows exactly what state officials are allowed to do, and what they are not allowed to do, when gathering evidence.
