Orlando, FL asked in Criminal Law for Florida

Q: I have a affidavit where the sheriffs dept came in & arrested me! The only prob cause was I was known felon

I have the affidavit in hand & can't seem to find a valid Cause of why a search warrant was ever issued not once but twice to the sheriff dept to search my home & arrest me. I was arrested two hours b4 the first warrant ever arrived. There was a second person arrested a month & half later in regards to my arrest & have copy of their affidavit as well. There was a CI involved in both of our arrest but only by word of mouth was she able to give officers any proof of anything illegal going on. The CI is known from the beginning by both of us & was sworn under oath about her complaint traveling on the highway over the phone! Both affidavits that were sent to judge r very irratical and not understandable! If I could plz have an attorney just look at both of them & tell me if I have a chance to have it thrown out or dismissed I will be more then happy to talk to attorney &,retain them! Just lost in the knowledge of the law! Thank you for any help! This is in Jackson county Florida btw!

A: You should be able to tell a lot by reading the affidavits that support the finding of probable cause for the warrants. Sometimes they are very sketchy and if their is a CI involved who is still working they may be very reluctant to provide the information they gave them. In discovery once the charge is filed you should be able with a competent attorney to determine what the basis was.
