CA3: Violation of Vienna Convention on arrest doesn’t lead to dismissal

“Dismissal of the indictment and suppression of evidence are not appropriate remedial measures for a violation of Article 36 [of the Vienna Convention] in this case.” Sanchez-Llamas v. Oregon, 548 U.S. 331, 350 (2006). United States v. Castillo, 2018 U.S. App. LEXIS 19839 (3d Cir. July 18, 2018).

Government’s offer to not use any evidence from a search moots the need for a Franks hearing. United States v. James, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 121557 (D. Nev. July 20, 2018).*
