WA: Unverified belief in existence of arrest warrant required suppression

Unverified belief there was an arrest warrant for defendant required that the arrest and search be suppressed. State v. Pines, 2021 Wash. App. LEXIS 1223 (May 17, 2021).

“Here, while the record is unclear as to when the outstanding warrant was discovered, we believe it sufficed to dissipate any taint that may have been caused by defendant’s prior detention and transportation from the hospital to the police station, where it is clear that she was restrained and not free to leave.” State v. Hebert, 2021 La. LEXIS 1148 (May 13, 2021).

The affidavit for the search warrant for defendant’s cell phone showed probable cause the phone was used to coordinate drug deals. United States v. Segovia-Landa, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 93271 (S.D. N.Y. May 17, 2021).*
