CA6: Dist.Ct.’s findings don’t support inevitable discovery, so court applies independent source instead

The district court’s analysis doesn’t support application of the inevitable discovery exception because the court didn’t make sufficient findings on the second part of the test. Instead, the record fully supports the independent source doctrine instead. United States v. Chapman-Sexton, 2018 U.S. App. LEXIS 35397 (6th Cir. Dec. 18, 2018).

“The court found the marijuana admissible under the search-incident-to-arrest exception to the warrant requirement and the inevitable-discovery doctrine. We agree with the court’s reliance on inevitable discovery.” State v. Landis, 2018 Iowa App. LEXIS 1157 (Dec. 19, 2018)
