Search and Seizure Cell Phone
Jul 30, 2022
The court of trial court issued an Order finding M.H. in contempt for refusing to provide passcode to access his cell phone in connection with a search warrant. The Court of Appears upheld the lower court’s Order because M.H. had not yet been charged with any crime related to his phone. The court reasoned any arguments challenging the warrant’s issuance and the propriety of the traffic stop and seizure of his phone are premature.
