Rebekah Jones Search Warrant Documents
Read Rebekah Jones search warrant documents. FDLE’s affidavit, the warrant signed by Judge Hawkes, the judge’s duty log, the judicial assignments, and orders.
Below are the Rebekah Jones Search Warrant Documents: FDLE’s Application for the Search Warrant (December 3), the actual warrant (signed by Judge Joshua Hawkes December 3 at almost 6PM via e-warrant), the log where law enforcement shows warrant applications, “duty” assignment roster for judges during and after hours (to be available for emergencies) ,and Administrative Orders regarding assignment of judges in the Second Circuit.
Note, Judge Hawkes assumed his judicial position on November 5, 2020. He was immediately assigned as a duty judge, per the duty log showing “Amended 11/23/20”. As such, he was tasked to handle emergency matters (search warrants, domestic violence injunctions, etc) November 10 – 17 and again for December 1 – 8. It does not appear that other judges re-appear in the duty rotation that frequently. The November 23 amendment to the duty roster was after his first duty week, which could indicate he was put back into the duty rotation for early December. It is understandable that Judge Morris, also a new judge, would appear on the duty list and be signing search warrants as a new judge, as she has 15 years of experience in criminal law. Hawkes, however, appearing twice within a month, does not have any significant criminal law experience to my knowledge. I am not certain that he has been to the judicial college as of yet (website indicates it takes place in January).
