What is plain view?

If a cop is in a place where “he has a right to be” it is not a search, it is “plain view”.


If it is not a search then it is not subject to being suppressed.


The law protects your reasonable expectation of privacy. The reasonable test goes to expectations of privacy, not places.


Looking into cars is permitted. Using a flashlight to see in your car or your home is permitted. Binoculars: ok. Fly-over’s: ok. And our courts keep expanding the list of permitted views.


Anything that can be seen from the street is in ‘plain view’ and you have no constitutional protection.

Client Reviews
My experience with Mr. Behr and his staff was nothing short of phenomenal. I hope to not ever need representation again. But In the case I do. J would absolutely use Mr. Behr. I would also fully recommend him to anyone I know in need of representation.
When I travel throughout the world for business I can honestly say that I feel extremely comfortable knowing I can pick up the phone for guidance and know Mr. Behr will consistently have my back with a positive answer on the other end. I attribute my success with my business by having this honorable man on my team. Thomas
Mr. Behr has helped me in various cases. And each time has been more than successful than I expected! I would recommend him 100% to anyone with legal problems. Eve
He filed motion after motion until the judge finally dismissed my case. He even took it to another judge. The guy never stopped and let nothing stop him. He was all over the prosecutor and knew more law than the judge, it was super cool to watch the man work. He is the best lawyer in the county. Jose
