Officer's demand for illegal blood draw goes viral

When we think about cases where a person has refused a chemical test in drunk driving cases, we may think of a belligerent individual who may be so impaired that they don’t understand the legal consequences of their choice. We certainly don’t think that a person may be charged with a crime even though they were following the law.

A person's rights when police conduct a search

If an Iowa resident is suspected of committing a crime, police may search his or her home or seize property if it is evidence of that crime. However, there are limits to how far the government may go to collect this evidence. The Fourth Amendment to the Constitution says that only reasonable searches and seizures may be conducted. For instance, a search may generally not be conducted without probable cause.
