Legal Answers
8 Questions Answered
Q. What if there was a syringe full of blood and they wouldnt test the dna
A: This is a vague question. However, you do have a right to have all evidence DNA tested. If the prosecution refueses to conduct the testing, your lawyer can have it done. The prosecution should make it avaialable to your lawyer for testing.
Q. How can I check my boyfriend case status?
A: Depending upon which county in which the case is filed, you may be able to check the status of a case online.
Q. Does a warrantless search of a person's house violate the 4th amendment when the person was lawfully arrested with a war
A: A search warrant and an arrest warrant are two completely different things. Unless there was an exception to the search warrant requirement such as consent to search, items in plain view or exigent circumstances a search warrant is required. If you believe that your 4th amendment rights have been violated you need an experienced criminal defense attorney to review your case and file the appropriate motion to supress any evidence found during that search.
