IL: 16 month delay in getting SW for cell phone in police custody unreasonable

Police waiting 16 months to get a search warrant for defendant’s cell phone already in their custody was unreasonable. People v. Meakens, 2021 IL App (2d) 180991, 2021 Ill. App. LEXIS 212 (Apr. 27, 2021).

The trial court erred in considering evidence obtained by illegal warrantless entries in the alleged probable cause for the search warrant for defendant’s property. State v. Anderson, 2021 Mo. App. LEXIS 484 (Apr. 27, 2021).

A concerned citizen called about defendant in his car. A police officer responded, parked behind him, and knocked on his window to check on him. This was all reasonable. State v. Pompei, 2021 Conn. LEXIS 110 (Apr. 26, 2021).

There was reasonable suspicion for defendant’s stop on suspicion of battery. Officers received a call about it and found defendant matching the description and acting suspicious. United States v. Watson, 2021 U.S. App. LEXIS 12480 (11th Cir. Apr. 27, 2021).*
