Can cops search a house before they get a search warrant?
I just had my house search by cops. I asked to see a search warrant but they wouldn't let me see one since I wasn't the owner of the house but I was living there. The cops entered my house around 5:00pm. The next day I found the warrant on the dining table and it said it was issued at 8:00pm on the same day that they did the search. I believe the cops got a search warrant after they went in my house so it can cover their asses. Is this considered an illegal search since the warrant was issued at 8:00pm and they came in at 5:00pm? I lived in Los Angeles, California. Thanks if you can help me out.

I would definitely file a complaint. Cops CAN NOT search a home without a search warrant. You have the right to refuse entry if they cannot provide the warrant.

yes, it is illegal. they cannot search without a warrant, even if they knew they would have one in a few hours it was wrong of them. get yourself a respectable lawyer and believe me you got a case.

Unless the warrant said 5pm it is illegal. You might not be doing anything illegal but the owner might be, either way it was an unlawful search. You can always hire a lawyer.

Police need probable cause to enter any domicile. if you were doing something illegal and a neighbor reported it that might be construed as PC but, a good lawyer would construe that as a breech of your 4th amendment rights. the best thing to do is get a lawyer and pay him whatever he needs to make whatever they found go away. you probably got snitched on because cops dont kick in random doors.

It depends on the way you handled it. If they asked to search and you told them no, they shouldn't have entered. If they told you they were there to search and you let them in it's your fault. You basically have to stop them from taking advantage of you. Get a good lawyer and tell him you told them no but they just came on in anyway.

a police officer can enter a home if he believes someone is in imitate danger inside the household, or if there is an open door or someone consents to entry or a search otherwise it is a violation of your 4th amendment right. in which case he would need a search warrant.

When the owner/rent is not there the warrant is left. Must be left in a conspicuous place.
Check the time/date again. Cops often use military time. You may just be reading it wrong.

Hire a lawyer.

No one can answer that question other than a lawyer. Since a real lawyer would never offer legal advice here, you need to spend the money and talk to a live lawyer.
