CA11: Computer searches as condition of supervised release for gun crime not plain error

The district court did not plainly err in allowing supervised release searches of defendant’s computer for a gun crime. U.S.S.G. § 5D1.3(d)(7). Under precedent, a search condition does not have to be specifically related to the crime. United States v. Wyche, 2022 U.S. App. LEXIS 3367 (11th Cir. Feb. 7, 2022), citing United States v. Taylor, 997 F.3d 1352 (11th Cir. 2021).

The affidavit for the search warrant revealed a possible ongoing drug operation with observation of hand-to-hand drug deals outside observed six weeks apart. The warrant did not become stale before execution. The warrant was also particular. United States v. Beals, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 22081 (W.D.Mo. Feb. 8, 2022).*

Defendant’s Franks challenge to placement of a tracking device fails as conclusory. United States v. Long, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 22211 (D.N.J. Feb. 8, 2022).*
