D.Kan.: Consent to USM was to search for wanted man, and continuing search after finding him exceeded consent

Defendant’s consent was explicit: to search his house for a wanted man. When that man was found, the search had to end. Motion to suppress granted because officers exceeded the consent. United States v. Nelson, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 164992 (D. Kan. Oct. 4, 2017), on remand from 868 F.3d 885 (10th Cir. Aug. 17, 2017).

Another Playpen warrant sustained. United States v. Leonard, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 166263 (E.D. Va. Oct. 6, 2017).*
