A copy of the warrant should have been left at the residence. If not, there should be a record with the court.

Contact local counsel.

yeah but isnt there a procedure especially if they bust down your door and put guns to your head? no one in this residence is on probation or parole, so i really dont understand why they negelected to show me a warrant?

They were probably too busy kicking in your door and putting guns to your head. ;)

The "procedure" is to leave a copy of the warrant at the residence or with a responsible party at the residence. If no copy was left, check with the agency that conducted the raid and your attorney.

Failure to provide you with a copy of the warrant is not likely to result in any dismissal of the charges against you ... if any.

Sorry ... but failure to follow a procedure is generally a seperate matter from the offenses being charged.

You should probably work on a defense to the charges as opposed to searching for a magic pill.
