Legal Question: Unlawful Search

Can police run a drug K9 around a car that is parked on private property?

Unlawful search issues are very case-specific and require thorough analysis of the facts. Only an attorney with all the facts (including the facts from the police officer’s side) can make a good calculation about what the chances would be on motion on an unlawful search.
