NY1: Parole officer’s search of def on arrest revealed gun; trial court erred in suppressing

Defendant’s parole officer had a warrant for defendant, and a patdown with the arrest resulted in plain feel of a gun. The trial court erred in suppressing the gun because it was validly found. People v. Jennings, 2019 NY Slip Op 05838, 2019 N.Y. App. Div. LEXIS 5846 (1st Dept. July 30, 2019).* (The only surprise here is that the trial court suppressed when there was an arrest warrant.)

Defendant fails to show that the search warrant affidavit is “so lacking in indicia of probable cause” that the good faith exception should not apply. Essentially, the court finds probable cause via the good faith exception. United States v. Jackson, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 126528 (N.D. Tex. July 30, 2019).*
