If you were issued a search warrant with your name misspelled,

If you were issued a search warrant with your name misspelled, and found a lawyer who pretty much made you take a plea ( scared into) because there was no winning. And the courts still continue to misspell your name on all documents, is it still binding?? and no way to clear yourslef?

My husband was pulled over in NH expired inspection

My husband was pulled over in NH for an expired inspection sticker. He was ticketed for the sticker but the officer said that He smelled marijuana. My husband refused to consent to search so the vehicle was seized. My husband was not detained and not charged with anything. But now the police say we can't get our vehicle back until it is searched possibly in a few days. Is this legal to seize a vehicle for refusal to consent to search? Also how can they search the vehicle now and possibly charge my husband when he was never arrested or charged in the first place?

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.

Department of State fed agents have constantly been breaking

Department of State fed agents have constantly been breaking into my home stealing of things even bank account info and hacking those accounts stealing our money, using our credit card info making charging merchandise, also using my deceased father and brother's info and doing business with financial institutions. They have stolen my mother's savings bonds and cashing them. They have committed credit card, bank, and mail fraud. They have been taking our incoming and outgoing mail. When I've tried to report them to the media, they go to the media and lie about what they are really doing and the media backs off of reporting what I have to,d them. They have been impersonating me and my mother at banking institutions and depleting our accounts and on many occasions have ciphers get money out of our accounts. They murdered a church friend of mine who was trying to help me. They killed my niece in Nov 2015. They just killed my mother a week ago. They have been using chemicals in the heating and air conditioning system using a generator to push the chemicals throughout the my home and the home of my mother. They have destroyed my reputation spreading lies so that no one will help me. I've wrote congress, seven on your side (channel 7), contacted WTOP, and contacted channel 5 but no response. They have done horrible things to us and the list is too long to write everything down in this space. They are continuing trying to kill me because they know that I know what they have been doing. Chemicals are also placed in my car as well as my daughter and son's vehicles.I've even tried writing notes to people to see if they would report these corrupt fed agents to the media but be ause they have cameras in our homes and even placed tracking and listening devices in our ears (yes this is true and have been proven). It's hard to get help without them knowing. They always track the person down and tell them some made up story to get the note from the person.No search warrant was ever issued and presented to us at any time. These corrupt agents have just done anything they wanted to do to us.
