Common Criminal Charges
Our criminal defense lawyers work with individuals facing many common criminal charges in American Fork, UT. We help our clients with:
Police Have a Right to Ask for Your Identification
Utah state has “stop and identify” statues in place that mandate police officers to inspect all identification documents of all the people they stop, detain or arrest. If you are pulled over by a police officer, he has a right to demand an identification document from you.
You Can Say No to a Car Search
The Fourth Amendment protects people from unreasonable searches and seizures. If a police officer does not have a search warrant, you can generally refuse a request for permission to search your vehicle. However, there are exceptions to the warrant requirements, and if the police officer can find them, he or she can search your car even without a warrant. Exceptions to the warrant requirements include a questionable or illegal item in a plain view or if a police officer is acting in the capacity of a community caretaker and needs to enter a property or a car to protect safety or health of community or an individual.
