IA: Failure to sign SW affidavit when sworn can be cured by testimony

The affiant swore to the affidavit for search warrant before the issuing magistrate, but it inadvertently wasn’t signed. That’s an error cured by testimony, even if the magistrate has to testify too. State v. Angel, 2017 Iowa Sup. LEXIS 41 (April 21, 2017).

Out-of-court ID of defendant suppressed because of illegal search, and exclusionary rule applies because of need for deterrence. In-court ID not suppressed. Commonwealth v. Santiago, 2017 PA Super 116, 2017 Pa. Super. LEXIS 275 (April 20, 2017).*
