STAMFORD, Conn. – The attorney for a Stamford man charged with possession of bomb-making materials and child porn in 2013 is trying to get his conviction overturned in the state Supreme Court by claiming that his home was illegally searched by police, according to the Stamford Advocate.
Donald Saturno, 50, was convicted of illegal bomb manufacturing and first-degree illegal possession of child pornography and importing child pornography , the Stamford Advocate reported.
Saturno's attorney, Lisa Steele, argued Tuesday that authorities went too far in using an administrative warrant instead of a criminal warrant when searching his home, noted the Stamford Advocate.
Police were sent to Saturno's home to determine whether or not he was living in an illegal apartment, and authorities used a crowbar to get into the basement, where they discovered the child porn and bomb materials, the Stamford Advocate said.
