United States v. Kermali

Case Date: 11/27/2013
Citation: United States v. Kermali, Case No. 6:13-cr-150-Orl-36KRS, 2013 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 178169 (M.D. Fla. Nov. 27, 2013)
Court Type: Federal District
Court: Middle District of Florida (M.D. Fla.)
Judge: Federal Magistrate Judge: Karla R. Spaulding

Defendant brought a motion to suppress, alleging that the government’s search warrant was overbroad, that the search warrant lacked probable cause, and that the seizure of certain items exceeded the scope of the search warrant.


The Court denied Defendant’s motion to suppress. The search warrant was drawn as narrowly as possible given the circumstances, and the agents executing the search warrant were properly advised of the scope of the warrant. Further, the search warrant was sufficiently connected to the alleged crime and was supported by probable cause. With respect to items seized exceeding the scope of the warrant, the government interviewed Defendants to ascertain which items were proceeds of the criminal activity, and therefore did not exceed the scope of the search warrant.
