swat team raided the house i was staying at looking for drugs and such... had everyone ordered out of the house where we were zip tied... personally mine were extremely tight and cutting off circulation and i was without a jacket but they didnt care even though it was freezing outside... it was from 8pm until about midnight that i sat restrained as such... the search warrant included a name but it wasnt mine however the search warrent was for the residence... nobody was arrested...however i did admit that what they found was mine to ensure the mother of my child who also has another child was not taken to jail because it was her residence... of course they want me to "work" with them to avoid the charges that they can bring upon me... im not sure what to do about the sitsuation in any way shape or form... the search warrant of course was left with an affidavid of the proabable cause information be sealed until a judge or da decides otherwise... so I dont even know what made them come there to begin with... so yeah any advice would be greatly appreciated...
You can likely dispute the evidence through a motion to suppress evidence. There are many defenses to an admission, but one that could apply here would be that the confession was not freely and voluntarily given. Consult with a criminal defense attorney in person to obtain more information.
