FL5 following FL SCt: Davis GFE doesn’t apply to pre-Riley cell phone searches

On remand from the state supreme court, the Davis good faith exception does not apply in Florida to cell phone searches occurring before because there was no settled law, following Carpenter v. State, 228 So. 3d 535 (Fla. 2017). Burton v. State, 2018 Fla. App. LEXIS 2993 (Fla. 5th DCA Mar. 2, 2018).*

Evidence of a prior search of defendant’s apartment where she wasn’t arrested was minimally harmful if at all because that showed defendant was not in possession. The state offered it to prove knowledge. Commonwealth v. Proia, 2018 Mass. App. LEXIS 26 (Mar. 2, 2018).*
