Can I Be Arrested And/Or Searched Without A Warrant?
Yes, in some instances. If a police officer has probable cause to believe that you have committed a crime or are in the process of committing one the law allows the officer to conduct an appropriate search. A good defense attorney, however, can get illegally obtained evidence suppressed. Furthermore, there are situations where you can be arrested without a warrant. For example, if a police officer witnesses you committing a crime you can be arrested immediately.
