Consider the following scenario:
1) The police arrive at your house with a search warrant
2) You (not the legal owner of the house, but the tenants of one of its rooms) ask repeatedly to see the search warrant, but all they do is hold it up >5 feet away and refuse to let you read it
3) They threaten to arrest you if you don't open the door, so you let them in, but only after many attempts to look at the warrant
What rights do the occupants of the house have regarding any evidence found within that house?
1 Answer from Attorneys
The consideration/evaluation of such "rights"(such as they may be) would
seem to depernd upon whether any of the lawful occupants of
this dwelling were in fact criminally charged which is not apparent from
this scenario as described.
