Police on call for broken window arrest 2 on drug charges

Evansville police arrested two occupants of an apartment in the area after they allegedly found several different types of drugs in the apartment unit, including evidence of an operation involving the growing of marijuana. Several drug charges are now pending against the apartment's occupants.

Man arrested after Evansville resident dies of overdose

Residents of Indiana and the surrounding states all likely know that a drug charge, particularly if the charge involves selling drugs, is a serious matter. As a recent case in the local news illustrates, these charges are particularly serious if they arise in connection with someone's death by overdose.

Employee, boss arrested in attempted arson case

A man from Evansville is facing charges that he attempted to burn down the house of his ex-girlfriend and also tried to burn her vehicle. It was not clear exactly how large of a fire this man allegedly attempted to set, nor was it clear whether this was the result of a dispute between he and his ex-girlfriend, who at one point were engaged to be married.

Facing criminal charges? Consider acquiring legal help

There are many aspects to a criminal prosecution. Physical evidence must be gathered, witnesses must testify, and prosecutors must put it all together with convincing legal arguments that persuade a jury that a defendant is guilty before a conviction can be obtained. Even each of these elements have smaller, yet just as complex, issues. For example, as we discussed on the blog last week, physical evidence may be drawn into questions when the legality of a search and seizure is at issue. Other matters, like chain of custody and witness bias, can play a critical role in a criminal case, too.

Search and seizure under the Fourth Amendment

Oftentimes when Hoosiers are charged with a criminal offense, prosecutors rely on physical evidence to build their case. This evidence is typically gathered by police officers as part of a search and seizure. However, the police cannot just stop and search individuals and their residences at random, as the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution protects citizens from unlawful search and seizure.
