GA: Probate judge could issue SW under state law

It wasn’t a violation of state law that a probate judge signed the search warrant in this case. Joyner v. State, 2018 Ga. App. LEXIS 474 (Aug. 3, 2018).

Defendant’s DNA was found on bullet casings, and that was added to the affidavit for search warrant for his house which was issued nine days after the shooting. Probable cause shown on the totality. State v. Andrews, 2018-Ohio-3050, 2018 Ohio App. LEXIS 3293 (8th Dist. Aug. 2, 2018). [The significance here is that I can never get my state crime lab to admit that this can even be done.]
