Re: Evidence Found Before Consent of Search
if there actually was a warrant issued, which based on the reason they were there it is very unlikely (could be more to the story?), they didn't need your permission to search at all.
An officer said that detectives were on their way with a warrant to search our house for drugs and that it was best to turn over any drugs in the house.An officer followed me into our bedroom and found weed and a pipe in a cabinet.
So, when they convinced you there was a warrant, you allowed them to search your room (and actually anything in their view on the way to the room) to show them the dope you had. Once they found the dope, they no longer needed a warrant because they did find illegal drugs in the house which allows them to search the rest.
but anyway, you allowed them to search the area where the drugs were found.
so, stop me when you see something that might be seen as a 4th amend violation.
