Denver Criminal Defense Attorney Andres R. Guevara Will Protect Your Rights in Cases Involving Search Warrants
The Fourth Amendment of the United States Constitution and the Constitution of the State of Colorado bar unreasonable searches and seizures. Absent exigent circumstances, any law enforcement entry into an individual’s home requires a warrant or the voluntary consent of the individual in control of the property. A search warrant authorizes law enforcement to search specified places or seize specified items upon a showing of probable cause. To obtain a search warrant, law enforcement must first prove to a magistrate or judge that probable cause exists that evidence of a crime will be found in the location the warrant seeks to search.
Whenever appropriate, the Law Office of Andrew R. Guevara will file motions to suppress unlawfully obtained evidence on the basis that there was not probable cause for the issuance of a warrant. The motion to suppress seeks to suppress the evidence that was seized, and if successful, the evidence cannot be used against an individual in a criminal case. I have successfully litigated motions to suppress evidence seized as a result of search warrants in misdemeanor and felony prosecutions, including the suppression of drugs, weapons, paraphernalia, financial documents and other items which the prosecution has attempted to use at trial. In many instances, if the motion to suppress is successful, the prosecution will have insufficient evidence to prosecute the case and will be forced to dismiss it.
