  • If my passenger is on parole with Search conditions

    Hi, I hope I'm asking this in the right place. I watch a lot of Cops on TV and I've noticed that sometimes (or maybe all the time I'm not sure) when someone is on parole the police can search them whenever they want because of the conditions of the parole. I'm just wondering if I'm driving and my passenger is on parole and we're pulled over do the police have probable cause to search my car simply because the parolee is in it?

    I live in Canada so if there are any Canadian officers on here I'd love to know what the law says in my country, but I'd also be interested to hear about the U.S. as well.

    Also I'd just like to say thanks for the work that you do.

    Thanks,
    HH.

    US, usually yes. Canada laws are probably different and I don't really care to look it up. I don't plan on ever having a person on parol in my vehicle.

        Canadian Law is liable to be different than American Law, which can often vary from state to state. Stated another way, American Law, while it could be similar, will not apply in Canada.

        Know how to avoid any problems in this regard? Don't have any parolees as passengers in your car.

          I wasn't planning on it. But then again short of running a background check on everyone I make friends with how would I know unless they volunteer that info?

              Get better at choosing your friends.

              That said I don't know if anybody wakes up one morning wondering this. More likely you have a specific reason to be concerned, but won't admit it.

                Fairly simple, if they are your friend, you'd already know. If they are your "friend" you are giving a lift for, it's a coin toss. A driver is responsible for who and what is in their vehicle be it person, weapon, drugs, etc. US laws are different of course but at least here I don't know how many times I've heard, "I was just giving him a lift. I didn't know he had it." as they are cuffed and giving a lift themselves. Just use your head and you won't have to worry about it.

                  "I didn't know he had [insert whatever here]" has never been used in such a compelling enough fashion that it ever made a difference on any of my stops. Sorry, bud.

                    Beats the crap out of me, but then it was YOU who asked the question. Try this: Pick your friends wisely.

                      Well, I'm gonna leave and I thank you all for the info.

                      Still I don't get why I needed to be attacked and insulted for asking. I saw the situation happen on episodes of Cops and was wondering if it gave Probable Cause since it wasn't the driver on parole. I'm interested in rights issues. That's it.

                      All my best to you.

                        You weren't "attacked". It was explained to you what would happen and why if this was in the United States.



                        As a point of order--------------remember that COPS is a HIGHLY edited ENTERTAINMENT show. NOT real life

                          Not only is it entertainment but as far as a "rights issue", I'm sure Canada doesn't have the same Constitution or "rights" that US citizens have. I know many citizens think our Constitution encompasses the world but it stops at our boarders. To figure out the "rights" you'd have to look at your own laws.

                              Ok OP. Here is the answer: No. Unless the train leaving the station going southbound is running at 35 mph, and can beat the car you're in to said station while you are driving at 60 kph.

                              Got it? Good.
                              Now go home and get your shine box!
