Did someone else consent to the search? Was this in hot pursuit of a suspect? What are the specifics regarding their entry to your home?
This answer is not a substitute for consulting with and retaining the services of an attorney for your legal needs. By providing this answer, I am not entering into an attorney client relationship with you.
How did you get on probation? If this was a bad search your attorney should of had the case dismissed. If you are now on probation then you either plead to something or was found guilty after a trial. If you plead then you most likely gave up the right to challenge the search. If you went to trial you can challenge the search in your appeal providing you challenged it with the trial court.
Doesn't sound like you have a case since you've already been convicted. The issues of warrants would have been impactful, had they been part of your defense. Little late now. IFiling a claim against the city can be quite a challenge since they are immune to suits, except in the most unusual circumstances. That said, I am NOT a MI attorney. You should have a chat with one ASAP. I also recommend you contact avvo and ask them to remove your phone number as this is an open public fourm and you may receive all manner of unsolicited calls from non-attorneys. I wish you the best of luck.
