  • Show everything you wrote above to a local defense lawyer and ask them if you won the taxpayer lottery. Nothing else for it, I'm afraid. – Patrick87 Jun 19 at 12:23

    For us to help, you need to tell us 1. Where you are (country/state). 2. What happened in chronological order, one thing at a time. 3. What your specific legal question is. "What are my rights?" is not specific enough. But as others have said, your best course is probably to talk to a lawyer ASAP. – Paul Johnson Jun 20 at 8:41

Of course you need a lawyer to represent you, and you can explain to that lawyer what happened. Based on what you say, I understand your allegation to be that the police broke into your house, obtained some evidence, then later arrested you based on that evidence. In some jurisdictions, this may be legal, but not in the US. The root problem is that a search in the US requires a warrant, consent, or is allowed in a very narrow set of contexts not matching your description. If the search was illegal, anything that flows from the search is also illegal, and your conviction (if it comes to that) should be overturned. Having a lawyer at the earliest possible stage simplifies the matter, because he will remind the police of these details of the law which they may have overlooked.

Improperly obtained evidence can be used if the court allows

Specifically, s138 of the Uniform Evidence Act (which is used Federally and in most states and territories) provides:

evidence that was obtained improperly or illegally ‘is not to be admitted unless the desirability of admitting the evidence outweighs the undesirability of admitting evidence’ given the manner in which it was obtained.

This is a codification of the common law rule on evidence prevalent in most common law jurisdictions, the being a notable exception.

There are various factors the court has to consider but they basically boil down to: Are the interests of justice both in this case and more broadly better served by accepting or rejecting the tainted evidence?

Rules of evidence vary by jurisdiction, but there are minimum guarantees provided by the Fourth Amendment to the US Constitution. Hire the best criminal defense attorney who takes cases in the jurisdiction where you were charged. Then have a private consultation with your attorney regarding the suppression of evidence obtained in violation of the prohibition on unreasonable search or seizure.
