That's not right, but you already know that. If you got busted see a criminal law attorney. The search and seizure are tainted by the police actions presenting the warrant. Good luck.
Advice given in this forum does not create an attorney - client relationship. No advice should be relied on without consulting with a local attorney.
You did not ask a question, but your mother would not have signed a search warrant. What was searched? What did they find? Where did they find it? Who is in trouble? These are issues you need to discuss with a criminal lawyer in a consultation. Most criminal lawyers offer free consultations.
You should speak with a Criminal Defense Attorney about this situation so that you can provide more detail to them for them to determine if 1) the search warrant was legal 2) the execution of the search warrant was legal and 3) what are the remedies if there was illegal acts on part of law enforcement.
