N.D.Ill.: Shots fired call specifying def’s backyard was exigency permitting entry

A report of gunshots from defendant’s backyard justified exigency entry into yard. “In response to Officer Gali’s statement that they could do it the easy way or get a search warrant, Pouncey responded, ‘go ahead, bro.’ The Court reviewed the bodycam footage and the audio and concludes that Pouncey is providing consent to a search.” Defendant argued the statement was ambiguous, but he didn’t object when the search started. United States v. Pouncey, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 36197 (N.D. Ill. Mar. 3, 2020).

There was a traffic stop, but a detective with reasonable suspicion for defendant showed up, and that justified extending it. United States v. Jordan, 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 6706 (4th Cir. Mar. 3, 2020).*

Playpen warrant sustained because the good faith exception applied. United States v. Wagner, 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 6691 (10th Cir. Mar. 3, 2020).*
