Current Bill Summary

SB 885 - This act provides for prosecutors and law enforcement officials to obtain search warrants without making written application to the court. Instead, the prosecutor may give voice authorization for the applicant to place the prosecutor's signature on a warrant application. The applicant for the warrant may then make a statement under oath to the judge. Such statement shall be recorded, transcribed and filed with the court. Sample forms are included in the act for the officer's application for a telephone search warrant.

Any person who intercepts a cellular or radio transmission and publishes information contained in such transmission to any person other than the intended recipient is guilty of a Class A misdemeanor.
