CA8: SW in CP case can include whole house, not just def’s room

In a child pornography case, the search warrant need not be limited to only defendant’s room. It can be the whole house. United States v. Schave, 2022 U.S. App. LEXIS 34757 (8th Cir. Dec. 16, 2022).

Officers got a warrant for defendant’s locked backpack. His Franks challenge fails for a lack of an offer of proof or reckless or knowing falsity. United States v. Ortiz, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 225913 (D. Vt. Dec. 15, 2022).*

The search warrant for defendant’s cell phone was based on a sufficient showing of probable cause and it was not merely conclusory. The good faith exception would apply, too. United States v. Lozano, 2022 U.S. App. LEXIS 34751 (5th Cir. Dec. 14, 2022).*

Defendant’s stop for driving under the influence permitted a search to see if the cause was present. State v. Gomez, 323 Or. App. 302 (Dec. 14, 2022).*
