Question: (1) When you get a warrant for child pornography, do you need to attach images? (2) Does a search warrant for digital evidence become stale when there are months between the alleged crime and the warrant’s issue date?
Quick answer: (1) No. However, you should be as specific as possible in describing the content of the images so it is clear they are contraband. (2) No. Digital evidence tends to be persistently kept, so a search warrant can be issued months after a transaction.
