N.D.Ind.: 911 caller’s info was transmitted and she revealed enough about herself to not be an anonymous CI

911 calls aren’t always truly anonymous. A 911 caller, whose number was captured by the system, called about a man pacing in a motel parking lot with a gun in hand. The caller gave enough information about herself that she wasn’t anonymous anymore, and the detail in the description was enough for reasonable suspicion. United States v. Harris, 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 181677 (N.D.Ind. Dec. 22, 2016), adopted, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 3805 (N.D.Ind. Jan. 11, 2017).

It was 8-9 months between defendant’s access of a child pornography website via his IP address and linking that address to him. The search warrant for his house and computers wasn’t stale.
United States v. Brenner, 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 181692 (D.Neb. Dec. 19, 2016),* adopted, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 4068 (D.Neb. Jan. 11, 2017).*
