Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Have you been arrested and charged? Was contraband found?
I cannot determine with any accuracy how the police obtained your new address. However, if I had to make an educated guess, the confidential informant identified your photo. From there, regardless of the address on your old ID, the police would likely be able to find your new address and get the warrant.
What I can tell you is that if you wish to go to trial on your case, your lawyer would be able to get you a pre-trial suppression hearing, to challenge the validity of the search warrant and to explore the possibility of the police having planted evidence. If a violation of your constitutional rights did occur, any evidence seized as a result of this illegal search and seizure would have to be suppressed, meaning that it could not be used against you in this case. If all you have are drug charges and the drugs were illegally seized, the case against you would have to be dismissed.
