  • Police opened my door and took evidence opening my middle console when i said they do not have permission to go into my car.

    pulled over with suspended licnese from forgetting to pay a surcharge payment for too many points on license. there was no reason for suspicion

    Carl’s Answer

    If the police conducted an unlawful search, your remedy would be to file a motion to suppress and ask the court for a hearing to suppress evidence recovered. Since you have not mentioned any evidence that was recovered, they is not likely any remedy.
