VI: Procedural errors in telephonic SW not suppressible without recklessness or bad faith

The procedural deficiencies in obtaining the telephonic warrants did not render them invalid. There was no showing of bad faith by the officers. People v. Glasford, 2022 VI SUPER 42, 2022 V.I. LEXIS 40 (Apr. 19, 2022).

A person detained by the police has no state or federal constitutional right to be told of his right to refuse consent to a frisk. State v. Hauge, 2022 Iowa Sup. LEXIS 47 (Apr. 22, 2022). [And it would have occurred anyway because there was a warrant for the passenger’s arrest.]

Defendant’s digital search at JFK customs was based on reasonable suspicion. The court goes into an illuminating discussion of “reasonable suspicion for what?” and concludes it was invalid in any event. Defendant was seeking adoption of a Fourth Circuit case, but the court finds the good faith exception precludes going beyond existing law in the Second Circuit which hasn’t spoken directly to this. United States v. Kamaldoss, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 73897 (E.D.N.Y. Apr. 22, 2022).*
