CAAF: AFB gate security officer wasn’t AFOSI, so his involvement was private search on day off

Defendant’s wife enlisted aid from a family friend at an Air Force base who was in the gate security forces, and he wasn’t a criminal investigator. At the time all this arose, she was there for social purposes. The court concludes that the airman in the security forces was not acting as a government actor at the time he assisted in searching a computer for her. Once AFOSI got involved, he was ordered out of the investigation and to have no contact with defendant’s wife. United States v. Buford, 2015 CAAF LEXIS 308 (C.A. A.F. March 24, 2015) (3-2), rev’g United States v. Buford, 2014 CCA LEXIS 226 (A.F. Ct. Crim. App. April 4, 2014).

The affidavit for a stolen boat in defendant’s backyard showed probable cause, notwithstanding alleged omissions from the affidavit. State v. Kaulbach, 2015 Ga. App. LEXIS 211 (March 27, 2015).*

The unequivocal testimony at trial was that defendant consented to the search of his person. State v. Daigle, 2015 La. App. LEXIS 593 (La.App. 1 Cir. March 26, 2015).*
