Texas judge: Search warrants can be obtained based on predictions of future crimes

Police in Texas may now obtain a search warrant based on “€œa prediction of a future crime,”€ according to a dissenting judge on the state’€™s criminal appeals court. The ruling by the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals came last week, ending a controversial case in which police searched a house before obtaining a warrant but were still able to present the confiscated evidence during a trial.
