Are the police allowed to search my private home?

The Constitution provides us certain protections to keep the government out of our homes. Now, even though we do have those protections, there are limited circumstances where they can get in. If you consent, law enforcement is allowed to come into your home. If law enforcement were to knock on your door, you opened your door, and they saw something in plain view, whether it be drugs or any illegal activity, that will give them the ability to be able to come into your home. If they have a warrant to arrest somebody that’s located within that home, they’ll be able to come in.

The short answer is the government has to stay out of our homes, unless they have a valid reason to do so. That’s where we come in. If you’ve been arrested and the government has come into your home, potentially violating your Constitutional rights, contact Flaherty Defense Firm today.
