Criminal Law/warrents


I live in a small village. It it similar to Mayberry on the old Andy Griffin show on TV. Hope you are old enough to remember.Village attorney,building inspector, judge are all in cahoots with each other and make up their own laws that are unconstitutional by the 4th amendment regarding rental permits for non owner occupied property. What if this village judge authorizes a warrant that has no basis for just cause, but, just because they want to get into my business because they don't like me. Can I bring the judge up on unethical charges at a higher court etc.?  For the record, I own several two family dwellings which are perfectly maintained and never had anyone call the authorities for anything.My tenants and I are well respected in the community.Thanks so much.

I am quite familiar with the "small town" atmosphere you speak of. However, let's not confuse "small town politics" with the prevailing law of this land.

Regardless of the town size, or the "politics" existing therein, no judicial officer can issue an arrest or search warrant without probable cause. You have recourse through the court system in that district as well as an appellate court in the state of New York.

If you believe that you are being targeted unfairly and contrary to law, you can contact the NY State Bar Association as well as the NY State Police and request that an apolitical investigation be conducted into the conduct of the judge and any law enforcement personnel that might be involved in these activities.
