DE: The affidavit for SW didn’t support the CI; motion to suppress granted

The affidavit for the search warrant here was based on a CI’s information and claim that he was constantly surveilled, but that wasn’t true because the officer admitted he didn’t see the alleged drug transaction go down. On the surface it might appear there was probable cause, but a “deeper dive” shows there wasn’t. Motion to suppress granted. State v. Spady, 2018 Del. Super. LEXIS 427 (Oct. 8, 2018).

Defendant knew of the search warrant issue in his case six years before and it was barred for PCR by statute of limitations. Brown v. State, 2018 Iowa App. LEXIS 936 (Oct. 10, 2018).*
