S.D.Miss.: Motion to suppress having been granted, def is a candidate for pretrial release

With the evidence against defendant suppressed, the government’s case is weakened, and defendant is a candidate for pretrial release. United States v. Norbert, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 61799 (S.D. Miss. Apr. 8, 2020).

The trial court’s order allowing defendant’s motion to suppress was proper because the affidavit in support of the search warrant contained none of the details that would serve to corroborate the confidential informant’s report that it purchased drugs from a particular individual in the apartment and did not explain why surveillance of the CI inside the apartment building would have been unreasonable. Commonwealth v. Costa, 97 Mass. App. Ct. 902 (Apr. 10, 2020).*
