D.Colo.: To just say a SW is “stale” in a motion to suppress says nothing; def has to show how or why it is stale

Defendant “cannot simply state general legal principles and expect the Court or the Government to figure out what he means to argue. Burciaga bears the burden here, and this ‘argument’ does not satisfy it. Accordingly, the Court will not inquire into the staleness of the warrant.” United States v. Burciaga Andasola, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 88441 (D. Colo. May 28, 2019).

Officers “had good reason to believe that Mr. Rush was the victim of a domestic assault, that Defendant was the abuser, and that she was in the home she and Mr. Rush shared.” He had the authority to consent to entry. United States v. Smith, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 88655 (M.D. Ga. May 28, 2019).*
