Q: Police raid my house without a warrant they kicked in the front door. Then asked if they could do a weapons sweep.
I said they could do a weapons sweep. I guess they took that as they could do whatever. They found a notebook and they are charging me with identity theft. This happened in 2018. They are just now charging me. Can they do that without a warrant. They have no body cam or anything
A: They can charge you with a felony anytime there is no statute of limitations. As far as the warrant issue, they would have to have a lawfully signed warren that they presented to you at the time. It sounds like there are definitely some legal issues with your case. You need to hire an experienced defense attorney to help you.
