The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit had upheld the conviction of a man who sold $20 million worth of counterfeit wine by mixing lower-priced wines and pouring them into the bottles of more expensive wines. USA v. Kurniawan, No. 14-2928 (2nd Cir., order entered December 22, 2015). The man challenged the search of his home on Fourth Amendment grounds, arguing that the evidence police found should have been inadmissible. The appeals court disagreed, finding that although the warrantless protective sweep had been illegal, the police affidavit provided enough additional evidence beyond what was found during the protective sweep to support issuing the warrant. Accordingly, the court affirmed a lower court’s judgment that the man must serve 10 years in prison and pay $28 million in restitution along with $20 million in forfeiture.
