CA7: SW affidavit failed to show nexus, but it was close enough for GFE

The affidavit for a search warrant for a third person’s home where defendant spent a lot of time was deficient on showing nexus and defendant’s connection to it, but it otherwise showed probable cause. Actually, right after three controlled buys, the car defendant used was parked outside the apartment, and one time they saw him go in. This is good enough for the good faith exception to apply. United States v. Yarber, 2019 U.S. App. LEXIS 4325 (7th Cir. Feb. 13, 2019).

The trial court erred in not granting defendant’s motion to suppress his warrantless blood draw because of lack of exigency. State v. Oaks, 2019 Tenn. Crim. App. LEXIS 93 (Feb. 12, 2019).*
