N.D.Okla.: NCIS SW in Japan as violation of Posse Comitatus Act was waived by guilty plea

Defendant was the subject of an NCIS search warrant while stationed in Japan. That led to his prosecution in the Northern District of Oklahoma. His guilty plea waived his claim the Posse Comitatus Act was somehow violated. United States v. King, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 232275 (N.D. Okla. Dec. 28, 2022).

Officers had a search warrant for defendant’s phone to look for images and messages about drug transactions. That led them to stumble upon child pornography as well. The warrant was valid. State v. Greenman, 2022 Tenn. Crim. App. LEXIS 550 (Dec. 27, 2022).*

“In this case, by contrast, there is no indication that law enforcement had a wealth of detailed information that was not reflected in the search warrant. The Premises Warrant was not required to provide more details regarding the specific electronic devices to be seized, because further details regarding the particulars of the electronic devices were not available.” United States v. Ramos, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 229903 (S.D.N.Y. Dec. 21, 2022).*
