I was on felony supervised probation, then was granted unsupervised probation after a year, had never had a home visit and a month before my total 2 year probation term was up I had a home visit, was not home, and my son in law answered the door and they told him they were there to do a visit and even after being told I was not there entered my home searched it and arrested him for something he had in his pocket. is this legal
The specific answer will come from the terms and conditions of your probation none of us lawyers have a copy of your terms best to start there read them
Providing general answers are meant to help the poster to understand some complex legal concepts and in no way creates an attorney-client relationship.
I agree with my colleague with respect to the search of your home. Unless we can review the terms and conditions of your probation, it is difficult to ascertain whether the search of your home was proper. With respect to the search of your son-in-law's person, you don't suggest that there were any circumstances present to form probable cause to search him. If there was no reasonable cause to believe he had weapons or contraband on his person, I don't know of any basis for a search. If no probably cause to search him, the results of the search should be suppressed. I hope your son-in-law is able to secure the services of a competent criminal defense attorney.
