Child Pornography charges dropped against Wisconsin man
In February, 2016, Kim M. Zion, of Eisenberg Law Offices, S.C., represented a Chippewa Falls Wisconsin man who was charged in federal court with three felony counts of possessing, distributing and receiving child pornography. Attorney Zion filed a motion to quash the two search warrants issued in the case and to suppress all evidence derived from the execution of the warrants arguing that there was no probable cause on which to base the warrants.
The United States District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin agreed with Attorney Zion and found that the warrant to search the Defendant’s home was plainly not supported by probable cause and that the affidavits in support of the search warrants so utterly failed to provide probable cause on which to base the warrants that the good faith doctrine did not apply.
The Court granted Attorney Zion’s motion and all child pornography charges against the Wisconsin man were dismissed.
