Minnesota Second Amendment Lawyer

CASE LAW UPDATE:  Whether sawed off shotgun found in search should have been suppressed?    

Defendant was convicted of the firearm offense of possession of a sawed off shotgun.  She appealed.  On appeal, defendant argued that the sawed off shotgun found during a warrant search of her apartment following a shooting in the area.  The Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals held that the affidavit in support of the warrant was sufficient to establish probable cause that evidence of the shooting would be found, and even though the warrant did not meet the particularity requirement of the Fourth Amendment, the good faith exception applied, and, the shotgun was properly seized under the plain view doctrine.

United States v. Saddler, 21-1884, Loken, J.  Appealed from the United States District Court, District of South Dakota.

Minnesota Criminal Defense Lawyer Lynne Torgerson was not attorney of record in this case.
