Q: can probation and parole assist police officers in questioning & searching the home if no one is on probation or parole

Social services had recieved a call concerning my 17 year old twins and with them came a state police and a probation or parole officer. I told the police they could not come in and the probation eased their way in anyways. The probation found a small amount of drugs. I was not arrested nor ticketed can the police come back later to arrest me or file charges in the state of Kentucky?

A: If they didn’t have a search warrant and you didn’t give consent to enter and search, then you have an unlawful search and seizure.
