E.D.Mich.: Possible violation of state law doesn’t mean exclusion in federal court

The CI’s identity was not kept secret, and there was probable cause for the search warrant. The affidavit was not bare bones. The possible violation of state law isn’t shown to be of constitutional magnitude for exclusion of evidence in federal court. United States v. Gordon, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 92391 (E.D. Mich. June 15, 2017).*

The body camera didn’t record the consent to search, but the officers’ testimony was credited that defendant consented. The court adopts that finding. United States v. Hill, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 91341 (D. Nev. June 14, 2017).*
