The Fourth Amendment is supposed to limit overaggressive law enforcement and government practices and make sure that there are no unreasonable searches and seizures conducted on citizens. The Fifth Amendment concerning law enforcement requires that no person should be forced to incriminate him- or herself. Both of these amendments are a huge part of criminal appellate law. Specifically many defendants file appeals of their convictions based upon the fact that they believe either their Fourth or Fifth Amendment rights were violated by the police.
You are a private investigator who is an AIU graduate and owns a private investigation firm. The private investigation firm covers all forms of private investigation but specializes in conducting criminal defense investigations that are court-appointed. You like this work because not many people know that for a felony offense if a defendant gets a court-appointed attorney in the Federal Judicial System and most state judicial systems then the defendant also gets a court-appointed private investigator to work with the attorney in defense of the charges. You have worked previously with this attorney and he has faith in your abilities because of your past efforts.
