S.D.Ga.: CI information was a little stale, but the officer’s corroroboration was with current information and that overcame staleness

The CI’s information was a little dated and potentially stale, but it was corroborated by current information and that was probable cause. United States v. Mobley, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 101640 (S.D. Ga. June 18, 2018).

“In this case, by contrast, Defendant’s flight from Officer Bovy was an intervening, voluntary act on the part of Defendant that sufficiently purged the subsequent search from any taint of illegality. … Therefore, even if none of the three independent grounds Officer Bovy had for detaining Defendant were valid, Defendant’s arrest and search would still be lawful based on his flight from police. Accordingly, the court shall overrule this objection.” United States v. Carter, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 102778 (N.D. Iowa June 20, 2018).*
