GA: Def was properly allowed at trial to cross-examine searching officer about contents of affidavit despite the affidavit not coming into evidence

Defendant was allowed to cross-examine the investigator concerning the contents of the search warrant application to impeach. The trial court’s not permitting the actual affidavit into evidence wasn’t prejudicial. Hawkins v. State, 2019 Ga. App. LEXIS 377 (June 24, 2019).

“The Court’s careful review of Officer Morse’s affidavit in support of his application for the search warrant indicates that he presented Judge Zimmerman with sufficient specific facts for the issuing Judge to conclude there was a substantial basis to believe that evidence of the child pornography could be expected to be found at Defendant’s home in Keewatin, Minnesota.” United States v. Larson, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 105195 (D. Minn. June 24, 2019).*
