Our New Jersey clients often ask if they must consent to a search of their car if they’re pulled over by a police officer. In a majority of cases, you do not have to consent, but the police may try to persuade you into allowing them to search your vehicle by giving you a consent form to sign. You are not obligated to sign this form and should request to speak with a criminal defense attorney. Our attorney, Charles Clark, explains more in the video above.
