Legal Answers
1 Questions Answered

Q. Can I refuse a search of my backpack if someone calls the police on me because they thought I was suspicious?
A: Under both the US and Texas Constitutions, you have an absolute right to refuse to consent to a search of your person, home, or effects (including your bags). By refusing, you place the investigating agency in a position where they must pursue a search warrant and provide specific facts to a judge that amount to more than a mere hunch that they might find something. Only if the judge believes that there is probable cause will the judge sign the search warrant. If an officer has a valid search warrant, then you may no longer refuse the search. However, if it can later be determined by your lawyer in court that the search warrant was invalid for whatever reason, the judge can suppress the evidence that was seized during the search.
