On February 6, 2023 the Sixth Circuit published a decision in U. S. v. Sanders, No. 21-5945 that reversed a trial court's decision upholding a search warrant. The Court held that a search warrant affidavit did not give sufficient grounds to rely on an informant's uncorroborated statement. In addition, the Court held that an insufficient nexus was advanced in the warrant to connect the place to be searched with illegal activity. Finally, there is an excellent discussion in the 2-1 Opinion holding that Leon's good faith exception would not save the otherwise unconstitutional warrant.
Defendants in complex criminal cases should hire experienced, aggressive criminal defense attorneys who stay current on all new appellate decisions that can benefit their clients.
