Can the FBI still charge me for things while I am helping them with a case?

The FBI comes to your home then wants you to set up a buy with a drug dealer but they can't say you will still not go to prison. Then they go in my bedroom and take my guns that are permitted and find drugs. Can this happen and it be legal?

    It can happen, and it be legal, because while you are working with the FBI, you do not get to possess illegal drugs.

    This is an interesting situation. You were tricked into giving consent to the FBI to enter your home. They will argue that you gave consent and agreed to cooperate with them. But if you were tricked into giving consent, then your consent was not voluntary and you may have a strong motion to suppress the evidence found by the FBI. On thing is certain-you need to retain legal counsel as soon as possible.

    It can happen and yes you can still be charged after you help them. Notice they will not put anything into writing before hand.
