The answer is still the same. Sometimes the police actions would be lawful, sometimes not lawful. This will often depend on tiny details in the facts, and sometimes will depend on whether the judge believes the officer or you. If you are satisfied with your present lawyer, fine. If not, then hire a different one. If you have no money the judge can appoint an attorney. A defendant does not have unlimited opportunities to change attorneys, but has some opportunity to do it.
