US v. Mann, 08-3041

Conviction of defendant for possessing child pornography, supported by evidence found while executing a warrant to search defendant's computers and hard drives for the unrelated crime of voyeurism, is affirmed as, although an officer exceeded the scope of the warrant by opening certain files, those files are severable from the remaining files seized.
