Maryland v. Garrison case brief

    1. Maryland v. Garrison case brief summary

      1. Police obtained and executed a warrant to search the person of Lawrence McWebb but after they discovered contraband they found out they were in different apartments
      2. No question that the warrant was valid and there was probable cause
      3. After they entered Garrison’s side of the apartment they discovered heroin and contraband- once they realized they were in the wrong app they discontinued the search
      4. A warrant must particularly describe the place to be searched and the person or things to be seized
      5. The warrant was valid- we look at the time the police reported to the magistrate to get the warrant
        1. It was valid but now we look to the scope to determine
        2. We look to see if the mistake of the officer was objectively reasonable
        3. Prior to finding out the mistake, they objectively reasonably believed the third floor was one single apartment
        4. McWebb did nothing to warn the police
        5. The warrant was not invalid but technically it was
        6. The court is saying that the officers did the best they could
          1. We won’t punish the state for their reasonable mistake
      6. This is the flip side of what we usually see

While in law school I traveled the world.  Puerto Rico.  Egypt.  Israel.  The Netherlands.  All over the United States.  Costa Rica.  Panama... How, you ask?  I found ways to make money on the side.  One of those ways was hosting my apartment on AirBnB.  If you have an extra room, this is a perfect way to make some extra cash.

Since law school, I have traveled to dozens of countries for pleasure with my family.  It's not rocket science.  You just need to know how to start some side hustles.  Another one of my favorite ways to make money is buying and selling stocks and cryptocurrency on Robinhood.  Join now and get a free stock through this link:  Join Robinhood and Get a Free Stock!
