N.D.Ga.: SW for seizure and search of a computer allows the search to be done at a later time

A second search of a computer’s contents is usually justified by the initial search and seizure warrant for the computer. United States v. Perry, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 148336 (N.D. Ga. Sept. 13, 2017).

Officers went to a Biloxi motel room on an anonymous prostitution complaint. Defendant opened the door and drugs were in plain view, and he admitted that the drugs were being broken down into “party packs.” Defense counsel filed a no-merit brief which the court agrees with. Dunnaway v. State, 2017 Miss. App. LEXIS 544 (Sept. 12, 2017).*
