Highlight

When reviewing a district court’s finding of exigent circumstances, the findings of fact are reviewed giving due weight to the inferences drawn from those facts by judges and law enforcement. A de novo review is applied to the ultimate determination of whether the facts constitute exigent circumstances.

Issues which are not raised before the district court, including constitutional issues, will not be considered for the first time on appeal.

Probable cause to search exists if the facts and circumstances relied on by the magistrate would warrant a person of reasonable caution to believe the contraband or evidence sought probably will be found in the place to be searched.

When a defendant alleges false or misleading statements have been made in the application for a search warrant, the issue is addressed under the standard set forth in Franks v. Delaware, 438 U.S. 154 (1978).
