Q. Can the police search my hotel room without issuing a search warrent
A: Sometimes yes, sometimes no. It's going to depend on a ton of factors, including what they knew when they conducted the search, whether you were the person who rented the hotel room, whether you're on probation, whether others were in the room, and the presence or absence of exigent circumstances (fancy way of saying emergency). If they had probable cause that there was criminal activity taking place in the room and if there were any exigencies, then they wouldn't need a warrant to search the room. You should speak with a criminal defense attorney about the specifics to find out whether there are grounds for a motion to suppress. **This answer is purely information, and should not be taken as legal advice. It also does not create or imply an attorney/client relationship.
Q. My son a felon about 9 years ago was just arrested with 2 guns in Delaware how much jail time can he receive.
A: It's going to depend on whether he has other felonies on his record (no matter what state they're from), and what kinds of felonies they are. He is most likely looking at any/all of the following charges: firearm by person prohibited (x2), carrying a concealed deadly weapon ("CCDW") (x2), and potentially possession of firearm during the commission of a felony (depending on what he was doing when he got arrested with the 2 guns). The Firearm by Person Prohibited charges are going to carry at least 3 years mandatory jail time each, but may carry up to 10 years each, depending on what his previous felony/felonies are. So that's at least 6 years mandatory time on those charges. The CCDW charges will carry 0-8 years each, but the presumptive sentence for CCDW's includes jail time, even though there's no mandatory time. If he's charged with Possession of a Firearm During Commission of a Felony, then he'll face an additional 3 years mandatory on each gun. You'll need to wait and see what charges he's indicted on, but he is most likely looking at a minimum of 6 years in prison, unless the State drops some of the charges.
