D.V.I.: Failure to put on proof at suppression hearing leads to show cause order to defense

Defendant filed a motion to suppress a statement and a search. At the hearing, however, the search wasn’t challenged. Defendant has to show cause why that part of the motion should not be denied. United States v. Henry, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 6636 (D.V.I. Jan. 13, 2021).

Defendant wasn’t “stopped,” but if he was, there was reasonable suspicion. Agudo-Monroy v. United States, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 6215 (S.D. Cal. Jan. 12, 2021).*

On the totality, the CI was sufficiently corroborated. “There is no doubt the affidavit for the search warrant could have provided more about the informant’s history and the investigating officer could have done more to corroborate what was reported. The affidavit as presented was not an exemplar, but it was legally sufficient.” United States v. Upshaw, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 247176 (M.D. Ala. Nov. 24, 2020).*
