    It depends who it is. If it was a policeman you may get the evidence thrown out of court. If it was a private person you can sue and get some money if the person is not judgment proof.

    Depends on who "illegally" searched your private property. Government agency? File a complaint with the agency or the agency that supervises the agency that did the search. Private person? Depends on who person is who did search, position, who person works for, for what PURPOSE were the fruits of the illegal search used? If the search falls under "the fruits of the poisonous tree theory," that discovered in the "illegal search" cannot be used for a conviction.
