Approximately 6 months ago I was charged with Offenses Against Intellectual Property. A search warrant was issued and a laptop and desktop computer belonging to me was seized and sent off for investigation. I had my trial a couple weeks ago and was found guilty. At that time though my computers had not yet been searched. After the trial I asked when I would receive my computers back and the detective in charge of the investigation said they were going to keep them and inspect them to see if they could find anything else to charge me with and that may take another year. I have important work related data on my computers and need them back. Can they continue to hold my computers even though my trial is over? And are they allowed to search my entire computer for anything in general, or are they allowed to search only for evidence relating to the original complaint? The search warrant is very vague and does not even mention searching the contents of my computers', the warrant on states that they could search my home for computer equipment.
