E.D.Wash.: SW affidavit that failed to show PC on its face gets no GFE

The affidavit for the search warrant failed on its face to show probable cause for search of defendant’s house. Thus, the good faith exception doesn’t apply. United States v. Contreras-Aguilar, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 9661 (E.D. Wash. Jan. 4, 2021).

“Ramirez-Solis was held on the side of the road for a protracted period to pursue a drug investigation that lacked factual support or constitutional justification.” Consent wasn’t voluntary where defendant’s car was stopped. The driver said his passenger was pregnant and going to the hospital, and the officer said he was staying but EMS could take the passenger. United States v. Ramirez-Solis, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 9644 (W.D. Va. Jan. 19, 2021).*
