Search and Seizure: Unsigned Search Warrants


*Unsigned Search Warrant*

Here, we do not reach the question whether there exists a good faith exception to the statute where a defective warrant is issued, since under South Carolina law an unsigned warrant is not a warrant, and is not capable of being issued within the meaning of § 17–13–140. See also Davis, supra (officers good faith irrelevant where warrant is not signed). State v. Covert, 382 S.C. 205, 209–10, (2009)
