TN: SW issuing magistrates have only district-wide jurisdiction and couldn’t issue SW here

By statute, magistrates issuing search warrants have only district-wide jurisdiction, and here the magistrate lacked authority to issue the search warrant at issue. The state did not show any exceptions. State v. Frazier, 2017 Tenn. Crim. App. LEXIS 861 (Sept. 25, 2017).

That eyewitness might be unreliable isn’t reason to suppress the identification for search warrant purposes. Here, the eyewitness was really confident with the identification and had plenty of time to observe. State v. Saunders, 2017 W. Va. LEXIS 724 (Sept. 25, 2017) (memorandum).*
