Third Party Doctrine | Mesa AZ Defense Attorney


Third Party Doctrine is the understanding that any information you voluntarily give to a bank, business, or other individual is not private. This assumption allows police officers to ask anyone you affiliate with for information to use as evidence against you in your criminal court case. Mesa AZ defense attorney Charlie Naegle has extensive experience representing clients in court. He will work with you personally to overturn unsubstantial evidence against you to reduce or even dismiss your criminal charges altogether.

With the prevalence of personal information available on the Internet today, the third party doctrine becomes very significant in many Arizona court cases. The Fourth Amendment ensures that “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

While an officer cannot search your home or vehicle for evidence without a warrant for probable cause, the information you voluntarily share with a company (through transaction records) can and often will be used against you in a court of law. Phone records, spoken, texted, or written communications with a third party of any kind, and even GPS data through your cell network provider can all be considered public information and used as evidence. All an investigator need do is contact your bank, your network provider, or your neighborhood mailman to get more information about you.
