NY3: SW two months after shooting was not stale where police were still investigating

The victim was shot in July 2016. In August, the police got a search warrant for his place and found nothing connecting him to it. In September, they got a second search warrant for a second place and found guns, drugs, and cash. The second warrant was not stale. Even though they had a better address for him two months before the search, they were still investigating. People v. Jackson, 2022 NY Slip Op 03936, 2022 N.Y. App. Div. LEXIS 3844 (3d Dept. June 16, 2022).

“In sum, the touchstone of any Fourth Amendment analysis is reasonableness. … The officers’ act of removing Williams at gun point and placing him in handcuffs, when considering the totality of the circumstances, was reasonable.” Williams v. State, 2022 Ga. App. LEXIS 306 (June 15, 2022).*

A Greyhound passenger in Albuquerque consented to a search of his person during a stopover. It started as a patdown and he consented to a full search, and that included manipulation of what was felt. United States v. Hill, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 106639 (D.N.M. June 15, 2022).*
