Challenging Police Wiretaps

As has previously discussed, How the government gets a Wiretap Police Wiretaps are one of the most intrusive tools that the police have in the "War on Drugs".

If the police are able to obtain a police wiretap from a Superior Court Judge, they are able to listen to all of the phone calls made by a specific phone. Generally, the police are only permitted to listen to phone calls concerning illegal activity, but occasionally police officers listen to all of the phone calls made from a phone in order to see if the phone calls on the police wiretaps are drug related.   Read about How to Defend against Intent to Deliver Drug charges
