North Dakota v. BlackAnnotate this Case
James Black appealed following his conditional guilty plea to ten counts of possession of certain materials prohibited, class C felonies. Black argued the district court was required to suppress evidence obtained during an unreasonable search following an improper initial entry into his home. Black also argued the trial court was required to suppress evidence obtained during a subsequent search of his home pursuant to a search warrant that lacked probable cause. After review, the North Dakota Supreme Court concluded the initial search was not unreasonable and the subsequent search warrant was valid. Therefore, judgment was affirmed.
