If you have a summons but no case number, shouldn't your

Hi! If you have a summons but no case number, shouldn't your name come up on the court's docket? I have an arraignment date, but my name isn't on that docket either. I don't exist in their system. Is this possible? or did they drop it? (it should never have been done in the first place)JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in?Customer: VaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I don't know. The officers came into my house, went through my purse without my permission, and charged me with possession of marijuana (about a gram or less worth). There is no case # ***** my summons, and my name does not come up when in their court system nor on their docket for either date written on my summons. This happened 5 days agoJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: that's it! thanks

Police with a history of illegal search and seizure and old

Police with a history of illegal search and seizure and old vendettas against my husband came to my house with a "failure to appear" warrant on my husband. The alleged arrant had a $250 body attachment. They entered our garage without having announced or knocked...They immediately started asking about his camaro and stating they would take it on suspicions that it had been used for drug related offense and/or purchased with drug money. We are a paycheck to paycheck type of family. We worry about bills all the time and do not sell drugs at all. The purchase of his car can easily be proven. They refused to show him the warrant and placed him in custody. I had no idea they were even here, they beat on the door and as I answered they began to scream at me to allow them to search my house. None of the 3 told me who they were not what department they were from. I have never encountered police with the exception of an occasional speeding ticket. I have now lost all faith in law enforcement. My daughter had just left and I was terrified something had happened to her and even asked if she was okay. With their hands on their guns, they began to yell about how my husband was arrested and in the vehicle, that he gave permission to search and that if I didn't sign their paper they would be right back with a search warrant, I would be arrested, my children would become wards of the state and we'd never see each other again. I was terrified. Shaking. My anxiety was through the roof. I didn't know what to do. I took the paper and they made me go outside into my front porch. While reading the paper, one officer had already entered my house and was yelling at me asking "where is your f**king purse" I had no choice but to sign. They already entered. They Were here for 4 hours. Seized his vehicle that's only in my name. They charged my husband with methamphetamine making materials. They have since been back twice trying to force me to sign yet another consent to search to which I refuse. (I now know my rights) each time they say they'll come back with a warrant but have yet to come up with one. During one of the visits, one of the officers went to my back yard and was digging through my trash. Our trash is not public property and he had no permission to do so. He is recorded. With all of my research, I believe this to have been an illegal search and seizure. We are more than willing to sell everything we own to get an attorney who can help us in this matter. Please help with any advice or where we should go from here. We love in Illinois. Never in my life have I been treated this way.
