CA6: Arrest warrants don’t get stale like SWs

Application for a COA on a 2255 appeal for failing to timely file a motion to suppress is denied. Arrest warrants don’t get stale like search warrants, and such a staleness argument would fail. Also, the record shows that the motion to suppress would have failed because the protective sweep was valid and the search warrant was with probable cause. Therefore, no prejudice, and reasonable jurists could not disagree. Guadarrama v. United States, 2017 U.S. App. LEXIS 14975 (6th Cir. Feb. 13, 2017) (order).
