OH12: Def’s claim judge didn’t sign SW has zero evidentiary support

The defendant contended that the judge’s signature on the search warrant was false. The only testimony at the suppression hearing was that the judge signed it at home. The evidence supports the trial court’s finding. State v. Clayton, 2018-Ohio-1777, 2018 Ohio App. LEXIS 1910 (12th Dist. May 7, 2018).*

Defendant’s effort to show a Franks violation from omission of the officer’s knowledge of the CI fails. On the totality, the court doesn’t find a Franks violation, and probable cause would exist without it. United States v. Walker, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 76196 (E.D. Pa. May 4, 2018).*
