Can police look at a cellphone without a warrant?

Police officers who are making an arrest can pat you down and look for weapons, as this is something courts have deemed necessary for the protection of the officers. However, have you ever wondered how far they can go? If they find a cellphone while patting you down, can they search through it?

Critics say white collar crime punishments are too severe

The financial crisis of 2008 has led to accusations of white collar crime, including insider trading. One of the men who was sentenced to prison was facing the longest sentence of all time for that crime: between 15 years and 20 years behind bars.

What do police look for as probable cause?

Before the police can pull you over and make you take field sobriety tests or use a breath test, they need to have probable cause. This is part of the law so that officers don't take it upon themselves to just pull over every car, hoping to snag a drunk driver by checking everyone.
