M.D.La.: Any exigency ended with def’s arrest; no facts showed others present

Any exigency involving defendant in his house evaporated when he was arrested and handcuffed. The mere possibility others are present can be exigency, but it requires pointing to actual facts, not possibilities. The court credits defendant’s own testimony damaging to himself showed the lack of exigency. United States v. Sergent, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 108044 (M.D. La. July 11, 2017).

The affidavit for the search warrant for this marijuana operation wasn’t stale. While marijuana is easily transferred, the ongoing nature of the operation made it more likely it was still there. United States v. Coach, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 107758 (W.D. Tenn. July 12, 2017).*
