Moreno-Gonzalez v. StateAnnotate this Case
Defendant was arrested and charged with possession of cannabis in an amount greater than 25 pounds, but less than 2000 pounds. Defendant filed a motion to suppress all evidence seized based on the May 16, 2007 warrant. At issue was whether a law enforcement officer's failure to sign an affidavit in support of a search warrant invalidated the warrant. The court held that the failure of the law enforcement officer to sign the affidavit did not render the search warrant invalid because, based upon all the circumstances surrounding the issuance of the warrant, the error constituted a technical flaw. Accordingly, the trial court erred by suppressing the evidence exclusively on that basis.
