It could be, if it were clear to the searching officers that the person on probation didn't have access to the room and the room was in the complete and sole control of another person. Under those circumstances a judge may find that the search was illegal.

What cases apply to an illegal probation search in the state of california?
Expert:  Hammer O'Justice replied 8 years ago.
There's not case law that specifically applies to the probation search. There's case law that applies to the proper scope of a search, and that is what you would need for your case.
