8TH CIRCUIT: VIOLATION OF STATE SUBPOENA PROCEDURES DOES NOT REQUIRE SUPPRESSION IN A FEDERAL PROSECUTION

After losing motions to suppress evidence obtained by local law enforcement through an administrative subpoena, Guy Edward Wheelock conditionally pled guilty in federal district court to receiving child pornography, he then appealed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 8th Circuit on the suppression issue and an issue related to his sentencing. On November 20, 2014, the 8th Circuit affirmed the district court on both issues.

Using investigative software, Officer Dale Hanson of the Minneapolis Police Department, learned child pornography was available for download from a certain Internet Protocol address with Comcast Communications as the Internet Service Provider. Pursuant to the Minnesota state subpoena statute, Minn. Stat. § 388.23, Officer Hanson requested an administrative subpoena from the Hennepin County Attorney ordering Comcast to produce subscriber information associated with the identified IP address. Officer Hanson certified the information sought was “relevant to an ongoing, legitimate law enforcement investigation of Distribution of Child Pornography.”

Make The Federal Long Term Care Insurance Program Part of Your Retirement Plan

Long term care is personal care provided on an extended basis to people who need help with specific everyday tasks (called activities of daily living) or who need supervision due to a severe cognitive impairment, such as Alzheimer’s disease. Regardless of the setting—home, assisted living facility, or nursing home—long term care can be expensive. And it’s not generally covered by traditional health insurance, including the Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) Program, Medicare, TRICARE and TRICARE For Life.

OFFICER CHRISTOPHER NEBBELING RECEIVES OFFICER OF THE MONTH AWARD

Washington, DC—The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund has announced the selection of Officer Christopher Nebbeling, of the West Palm Beach (FL) Police Department, as the recipient of its Officer of the Month Award for November 2014.

On the evening of October 26, 2013, West Palm Beach officers were pursuing suspects of a reported shooting. The West Palm Beach Police Department issued an alert on the suspect’s vehicle, stating they were last seen in a dark SUV heading south towards a crowded downtown area.

Officer Nebbeling was monitoring a Halloween event nearby, when he heard gunshots. As Officer Nebbeling headed towards the scene to assist, he noticed an SUV matching the description of the suspect’s vehicle traveling in the opposite direction at a high speed, and he pursued the vehicle. The SUV accelerated and weaved between cars through heavy traffic to elude Officer Nebbeling. The SUV entered a major intersection and nearly struck several motorists before the driver lost control of the vehicle, eventually crashing into the median. The driver stopped the SUV, and the suspects fled on foot.

President Meets Government Senior Leaders, Outlines Leadership Development & SES Reforms

GEICO’s Good Stuff is a column series highlighting great stuff happening in the federal community.


President Obama thanked public servants and outlined a new initiative to develop future government leaders and executives in a speech in Washington, D.C. today.

“My message here is simple:  Thank you.  I’d like to come bearing raises and perks. But I can’t. But what I can do is tell you how important you are not just to me, but to the country,” the President stated in his opening remarks.

The President went on to highlight the critical and often thankless work of public servants, including examples of a few federal leaders, while also acknowledging “that we do have an issue that we’ve got to address, and that is, Americans don’t trust government like we used to.  Part of that is a very deliberate strategy of trying to undermine government.  Part of it is political opportunism.  But part of it is our need to constantly adapt to the demands of the 21st century.”
