Jennifer states that Erica’s best friend told her that Jennifer had killed the victim.
searches without warrants must have a probable cause.
In most searches a warrant is not required, but digital evidence can rarely be justified without a warrant and another cause could be lack of foundation.
A warrantless search could be when you consent for officers to search your home or your car and if officers see evidence as criminal activity. The reason these warrants are warrantless because you are giving them permission to search your home without a search warrant and if you have liquor, gun or drugs in plan view sight then they can search your vehicle because they believe something illegal is going on. They can also search if they feel if someone’s life is at risk there are so many probable causes of warrantless searches. If don’t want officers searching your home or car don’t give them the consent to search.
