Search and seizure, also called stop and search, is probably the most hotly contested area of criminal law. Police are always making stops and/or searches. Those arrested are always contesting the legality of the stop and/or the search.

The reason is obvious. If either the stop or the search is illegal, any evidence found during the search is inadmissible at trial. In other words, No Evidence - No Case - Case Dismissed.

Search and seizure is a complicated area of the law. I will try to keep it simple and understandable. Navigate the following links for a better understanding of search and seizure law in Georgia.
