E.D.Tenn.: Video showed clear consent and contradicted def’s testimony

Defendant consented to the search of her purse. The video clearly shows that, and it contradicts the defendant’s testimony. United States v. West, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 58892 (E.D. Tenn. Jan. 6, 2017),* adopted, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 58672 (E.D. Tenn. Apr. 18, 2017).*

There were four CIs, and their reliability was established sufficient to show probable cause. There was probable cause for issuance of a GPS warrant for a vehicle. There was at least good faith, too. United States v. Petruk, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 60608 (D. Minn. Feb. 15, 2017),* adopted, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 60927 (D.Minn. April 20, 2017).*
