Knight v. State

Case Date: 12/22/2014
Citation: Knight v. State, 154 So. 3d 1157 (Fla. 1st DCA 2014)
Court Type: District Court of Appeal
Court: Fla. 1st DCA
Judge: Judge: Ronald V. Swanson

Defendant moved to suppress evidence obtained through an extra-jurisdictional investigation and search of his home computer.


The Court upheld the denial of Defendant’s motion to suppress. Defendant shared child pornography and made it accessible outside of Atlantic Beach, making the initial investigation in Neptune Beach legitimate. Once Detective Pegram found out Defendant was in another jurisdiction, she obtained the cooperation of the Atlantic Beach Police Department, which allowed her to continue the investigation without any jurisdictional concerns.
