IN: Def’s backpack would have been searched anyway, so inevitable discovery applied

Inevitable discovery applied to the search of defendant’s backpack. He was arrested, and the search would have occurred as a result of that. The merits of defendant’s search claim is thus moot. Winborn v. State, 2018 Ind. App. LEXIS 133 (Apr. 13, 2018).

The search warrant that led to seizure of forfeitable cash was based on probable cause and his claim of false statements in support of the warrrant doesn’t require a Franks hearing. United States v. $52,100 in United States Currency, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 63081 (S.D. Cal. Apr. 13, 2018).*
