What are my rights if I was served a search warrant in a language that I cannot understand?
Question Details: No officer would translate for me or anything.
The fact that you do not understand the contents of the warrant will not invalidate the warrant. You do not have a right to have the warrant translated before it is served on you. However, that does not mean that the warrant cannot be challenged. They should have given you a copy of the warrant. Take the warrant to a criminal defense attorney to translate and review the warrant for any defects. If he warrant is invalid, then any evidence seized as a result of the warrant could potentially be thrown out.
I would keep the search warrant that you were served with that you cannot read which is in a language that you cannot understand and then immediately consult with a criminal defense attorney to discuss and understand the warrant to make sure that your Constitutional Rights were not violated.
