(2) contraband, proceeds of crime or other illegally held items; U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson ordered that Williams be immediately taken into custody and agreed with prosecutors that she posed a flight risk if released at sentencing. Williams was “packed and ready to escape” after Jan. 6, Jackson noted, and had an elaborate understanding of how to cover her tracks. His actions with police on Jan. 6, Jackson said, undermined any confidence the judge had in Williams` ability to obey court orders during his release. Prosecutors noted that Williams faced a multi-year prison sentence, likely compounded by his efforts to suppress messages and cover up his behavior. The amendment removes language from 1944 according to which evidence is not admissible at trial or trial if the court grants the claim for restitution of property under rule 41 (e). This wording has not kept pace with the evolution of the doctrine of the exclusionary rule and is currently only confusing. The Supreme Court has now ruled that evidence seized in violation of the Fourth Amendment, but in good faith on the basis of an arrest warrant, may even be used against a person harmed by the constitutional violation. United States v. Leon, 468 U.S. 897 (1984).
The Court also held that illegally seized evidence may be admissible against persons who are not personally harmed by an unlawful search or seizure. Rakas v. Illinois, 439 U.S. 128 (1978). Assets that are unsuitable for a purpose (p. e.g., in a government trial) may be authorized for another purpose (e.g., indictment, United States v. Havens, 446 U.S. 620 (1980)). Federal courts relied on these decisions and allowed the government to retain and use Fourth Amendment evidence. The existence of the procedure authorized by subsection (c)(2) will minimize the need for federal law enforcement officers to engage in other practices that might, at least occasionally, pose a greater threat to Fourth Amendment-protected values. Although it is permissible for an agent in the field to transmit his information by radio or telephone to another agent who has easier access to a judge and therefore acts as a defiler, Lopez v. United States, 370 F.2d 8 (5th Cir.
1966); State v. Banks, 250 N.C. 728, 110 p.E.2d 322 (1959), this procedure is less desirable than that authorized by paragraph (c)(2) because it “deprives the judge of the opportunity to question the officer at the scene of the crime, who is in a much better position to answer questions relating to the probable cause and extent of the search”. Israel, Legislative Regulation of Searches and Seizures: The Michigan Proposals, 73 Mich.L.Rev. 221, 260 (1975). Or, in the absence of the procedure set out in subsection (c)(2), officers could “protect” the premises and occupants for a significant period of time, while a search warrant was sought by conventional means. The extent to which the “preventive detention” procedure can be applied under the Fourth Amendment is at best uncertain; see Griswold, Criminal Procedure, 1969 – Is It a Means or an Purpose?, 29 Md.L.Rev. 307, 317 (1969). The unavailability of the subsection (c)(2) procedure also makes it more tempting to resort immediately to a warrantless search in the hope that the circumstances will later prove sufficiently “urgent” to warrant such a step. See Miller, Telephonic Search Warrants: The San Diego Experience, 9 The Prosecutor 385, 386 (1974), who points to a dramatic increase in police use of the arrest warrant process following the enactment of a law on telephone arrest warrants. Subsection (b) (5).
Rule 41(b)(5) authorizes a magistrate to issue a search warrant for property located in certain delineated parts of U.S. jurisdiction that are outside a federal state or judicial district. Places covered by the rule include territories, possessions, and the Commonwealth of the United States that are not located in a federal judicial district, as well as certain premises associated with U.S. diplomatic and consular missions. These are places where the United States has a legally identifiable interest or where it exercises legitimate authority and control. The rule is intended to authorize a judge to issue a search warrant in any of the places over which 18 U.S.C. §7(9) has jurisdiction. The difference between the wording of this rule and the statute reflects the stylistic conventions used in these rules and not the intention to change the scope of the delegated legal authority. Under this rule, an arrest warrant may be issued by a magistrate judge in any county where activities related to the crime under investigation may have occurred, or in the District of Columbia that serves as the standard county for jurisdiction under 18 U.S.C. §3238. By adopting a reasonableness approach and removing the exclusionary language, the Committee rejects the analysis in Sovereign News Co.
v. United States, 690 F.2d 569 (6th Cir. 1982), cert. denied, 464 U.S. 814 (1983), that the United States must return photocopies of legally seized business documents unless it can demonstrate: that the records “are necessary for a particular investigation.” As long as the government has an enforcement objective when copying documents, there is no reason why it should be onerous burden to justify copying. Although some cases have ruled that the government must return copies of documents from which the originals were unlawfully seized – see, for example, United States v. Wallace & Tiernan Co., 336 U.S. 793, 801 (1948); Goodman v. United States, 369 F.2d 166 (9th Cir. 1966) – These findings are questionable in situations where Supreme Court decisions allow the government to use illegally seized evidence and their reasoning does not apply to lawfully seized evidence. Subdivisions (f) (1) and (2).
The amendment allows for the return of an arrest warrant by reliable electronic means. Asking for personal feedback can be stressful for law enforcement, especially in larger districts, as return can require a lot of time and travel. On the other hand, no interest of the accused is affected if it is permissible for an official act to be normally performed electronically.
