TX13: Affidavit for SW shouldn’t have been admitted at trial, but it was harmless error as cumulative

The state conceded error that the affidavit for defendant’s blood search warrant should not have been admitted into evidence at trial. (Defendant objected to a paragraph of hearsay.) It was, however, harmless error and merely cumulative to what the officer already testifed to. Sanchez v. State, 2020 Tex. App. LEXIS 4014 (Tex. App. – Corpus Christi – Edinburg (May 21, 2020).

Search of defendant’s outgoing mail from a jail was reasonable. He was suspected of contacting witnesses. United States v. Mayer, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 89226 (D. Minn. Apr. 14, 2020).
