Can I challenge a search and seizure in my criminal defense?

Despite what TV shows and movies might depict, citizens are not required to hand over their property to police simply because they were asked. The U.S. Constitution protects Pennsylvania citizens from any type of illegal search and seizure of their property. Unfortunately, defendants building their criminal defense are often unsure of what constitutes an illegal search.

Pennsylvania is serious about shoplifting offenses

Shoplifting may not seem like a serious crime. Many people, especially teenagers or college-aged adults, may feel the temptation to try shoplifting. It may seem like a victimless crime, but, in reality, it can put jobs at risk. Because retailers mark up items to reflect a certain amount of theft, everyone else ends up paying for shoplifted items. The more items destroyed or stolen from a store, the greater the potential mark-up.
