Whether or not law enforcement is entitled to legally search your motel room that you have written about when you are not in it and such is not your parole address depends upon what the written terms and restrictions are as to your parole. The order of parole will set forth what law enforcement can legally do with respect to you with or without a warrant or probable cause.
