West Law Report

United States v. Ankeny

Posted in Amendment 4th, search order, sentence by mrkooenglish on May 15, 2008

Richard M. Re’s comment in Yale Law Journal, United States v. Ankeny: Remedying the Fourth Amendment’s Reasonable Manner Requirement.

Better read the case first:

A conviction and sentence for being a felon in possession of a firearm and possession of an unregistered sawed-off shotgun are affirmed in part where, even if knock-and-announce violation and other aspects of a search amounted to Fourth Amendment violations, suppression was not warranted. However, the judgment is reversed in part and vacated in part as to the sentence, as the convictions were multiplicitous and material errors were made at sentencing.
