TX: Affidavit incorporated in SW had specific description and saves SW from overbreadth argument

“The issue before us is whether the particularity requirement of the Fourth Amendment is satisfied if a warrant describes the place to be searched as a fraternity house as a whole without specifying a suspect’s actual room in the house, but an incorporated affidavit provides both descriptions. We hold that the particularity requirement is satisfied if an affidavit that is incorporated into the warrant includes, somewhere, a specific description of the place that was searched. We reverse the judgment of the court of appeals.” Patterson v. State, 2022 Tex. Crim. App. LEXIS 187 (Mar. 30, 2022).
