ID: Failure to repeat “computer” in SW for things to be seized wasn’t a violation of 4A; CA7 typo in LPN can be overlooked

The preamble of the search warrant listed a bunch of digital things to search for and seize but the specific search clause didn’t include “computer.” The search warrant as a whole included computers, and defense counsel wasn’t ineffective for not challenging the warrant. This was a mere scrivener’s error subject to being overlooked without there being prejudice. Adamcik v. State, 2017 Ida. LEXIS 351 (Dec. 26, 2017).

The affidavit for search warrant for a Tahoe and an apartment showed probable cause. An typo transposing on the LPN of the vehicle transposing two numbers hardly undermines probable cause. United States v. Pettis, 2017 U.S. App. LEXIS 26750 (7th Cir. Dec. 27, 2017).
