S.D.Miss.: Courts condone broader warrants when CP is being sought

Where the computer child pornography warrant required the electronic media be searched in 14 days and it was searched in two days there was no prejudice. The warrant was not general. The tendency in the cases is to permit broader more general warrants where child pornography is the subject of the search because they can be in hidden folders. United States v. Koutsos, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 50387 (S.D. Miss. Mar. 27, 2018).*

The court finds defendant clearly consented to the search of his premises without having to decide whether it was valid as a parole search. United States v. Frye, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 48379 (W.D.N.Y. Mar. 23, 2018).*

Based on a detailed CI’s tip, the officer had reasonable suspicion defendant was involved in a recent robbery and was armed, and that justified the frisk. United States v. Ferriera, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 47905 (D. Minn. Mar. 23, 2018).*
