S.D.Ala.: Handwritten corrections on SW required a hearing as to how and why

The government contended in its brief on the motion to suppress that the search warrant was supported by controlled buys and didn’t otherwise support the CI. That requires a hearing. Corrections whiting out the address and changing it is enough to have a hearing about how and why that happened. United States v. Barber, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 24950 (S.D. Ala. Feb. 15, 2018).

Defendant had no standing to challenge Facebook search warrants for accounts of others. As to his own account, the search warrants were particular as to time period and scope. His Franks challenge fails because, when the affidavit for the search warrant was stripped of the alleged falsities, probable cause remains. United States v. Johnson, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 26125 (D. Ore. Feb. 16, 2018).*
