    Answered . How did law enforcement enter your house? Did they obtain a search warrant or did you give them permission? Since it's your first time, you are not on felony probation so they have no right to enter unless 1) you give them permission to do so 2) they have a search warrant. There could be serious problems on their end if they do not have either one of these and the case could be dismissed!
