FL1: Collective knowledge applies to affidavit for SW in CP case

The affiant on a child pornography search warrant doesn’t have to personally view the material. He can relate what another officer said who did see it under the collective knowledge doctrine. Mardosas v. State, 2018 Fla. App. LEXIS 14012 (Fla. 1st DCA Oct. 3, 2018).

Another Playpen warrant is sustained. A staleness challenge is also rejected. United States v. Krisnik, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 170158 (D. Minn. Oct. 2, 2018).*

The affidavit for the search warrant “plainly shows” that evidence of hacking would be found at defendant’s house. Knowing defendant was a convicted felon going in made the firearms found subject to plain view. United States v. Davis, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 169697 (W.D. Pa. Oct. 2, 2018).*
