Ind. Decisions - 7th Circuit posts one today
USA v. KEMPF, JOHN D. (WD Wis.) [4 pp.]
Before BAUER, EASTERBROOK, and WOOD, Circuit Judges.
BAUER, Circuit Judge. John Kempf was indicted by a federal grand jury on one count of unlawful possession of a sawed-off shotgun. After pleading not guilty, Kempf filed a motion to suppress evidence that was seized from his room at a boarding house. The motion was denied by the district court. He then pleaded guilty to the indictment, reserving his right to appeal the suppression issue. Since exigent circumstances justified the initial warrantless entry into Kempf’s room, we affirm.
