Court: TN Court of Criminal Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Leslie E. Price, Senior Counsel; Kim R. Helper, District Attorney General; and Carlin Hess, Assistant District Attorney General, for the appellant, State of Tennessee.

Attorneys 2:

David H. Veile, Franklin, Tennessee, for the appellee, Angela Faye Daniel.

Judge(s): OGLE

In this interlocutory appeal, the appellant, State of Tennessee, appeals the Williamson County Circuit Court?s order granting a motion to suppress evidence filed by the appellee, Angela Faye Daniel. The appellant claims that the trial court erroneously concluded that a police officer?s failure to deliver a copy of a search warrant to the appellee was not a “clerical error” under Tennessee Code Annotated section 40-6-108, the Exclusionary Rule Reform Act. Based upon the oral arguments, the record, and the parties? briefs, we affirm the order of the trial court.
