D.Md.: Omitted information that supported PC belies the officer was attempting to mislead as to a mistake in the affidavit

The failure to include the date of uploading of child pornography images wasn’t known to the officer at the time the search warrant was obtained, so the officer did not mislead the magistrate issuing the warrant. The misstatement of the officer as to the IP address wasn’t intentional nor did it undermine probable cause. In addition, the officer omitted a wealth of information that would have shown more probable cause. That undermines the claim that the officer was attempting to mislead. United States v. Crockett, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 182229 (D. Md. Oct. 24, 2018).
