Criminal Practice – Search & Seizure – Protective Sweep – Meth-Lab Home (access required)

U.S. v. Jones Police had reasonable articulable suspicion to conduct a protective sweep of a home suspected of being a meth lab after arresting the husband of the couple charged with conspiracy to manufacture meth on an extradition warrant to Georgia, based on factors that included prior surveillance of the residence and the number of vehicles outside the home; the 4th Circuit upholds the protective sweep, but remands the case for resentencing of the husband in light of U.S. v. Simmons.
