- Judge(s)/Court Below: Haselton, S.J. for the Court; Sercombe, P.J.; & Tookey, J.
Defendant appealed a conviction for several offenses, which included murder by abuse of his infant son. Defendant argues that the trial court erred in denying his motion to suppress on the basis that the search warrant authorizing the seizure and forensic examination of his home computer was overbroad. The Court of Appeals agreed that the warrant was invalid for violating the particularity requirement of Article I, section 9 and the motion to suppress should have been granted. Reversed and remanded.
