IA: Admission of SW affidavit at trial with CI’s version violated confrontation

Admission of the search warrant affidavit here at trial with inadmissible hearsay of the CI was a violation of confrontation. State v. Martinez, 2022 Iowa App. LEXIS 410 (May 11, 2022).

These search warrant materials remain sealed for one year. Too soon to unseal. In re of a Residence on Silo Ct. in Columbia, S.C., 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 84211 (D.S.C. May 5, 2022);* In re Search of An Address On Southern Drive, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 85495 (D.S.C. May 5, 2022).*

Defendant’s motion for return of property for a computer used in receipt of alleged child porn was granted but it is reversed on appeal. The papers filed do not conclusively show defendant is entitled to it. O’Connell v. State, 2022 Fla. App. LEXIS 3213 (Fla. 2d DCA May 11, 2022).*

Defendant here was convicted of making a false report of an assault on her during execution of a search warrant for her cell phone when she was at the courthouse watching her husband’s trial. The officer’s bodycam showed the claim was false. State v. Lillibridge, 2022 Iowa App. LEXIS 376 (May 11, 2022).*
