United States v. Williams, No. 19-2877 (8th Cir. 2020)Annotate this Case
The Eighth Circuit affirmed the district court's denial of defendant's motion to suppress in a case where defendant pleaded guilty to unlawful possession of a firearm. The court held that the evidence seized in reliance on the warrant is admissible based on the Leon good-faith exception to the exclusionary rule. The search uncovered a firearm, drugs, drug paraphernalia, and ammunition. In this case, the affidavit was not so lacking in indicia of probable cause as to render reliance on it as objectively unreasonable.
