N.D.Okla.: Court finds Franks burden satisfied that false statement was material to bolster PC

The court finds addition of information into the affidavit for the search warrant was reckless at best and then material to the finding of probable cause. Without it, the affidavit was too thin, and that’s likely the reason the offending information was added. Defendant met his Franks burden, and the motion to suppress is granted. United States v. Starks, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 129187 (N.D. Okla. Aug. 2, 2019).

An apparent hand-to-hand drug deal justified a stop. United States v. Scott, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 129513 (E.D. Ky. Aug. 2, 2019).*
