In a 2255 motion contesting a violation of my 4th amendment rights. the Hospital personel accompanied by police came on my personal property. The hospital lease had expired by 4 days ..the police stated they were there to keep the peace.
I had 4 claims:
1. the hospital had met with and were directed by the DA
2. the police "seized" both me and my property
3. the prosecution did not conduct an inquiry into what knowledge the private party had
4. the CD's of my hard drives were carried directly to police
5. I did not get a chance to allocute
MY RIGTHS WERE VIOLATED HICKS DID NOT ADDRESS ANY ISSUES
