LA2: UT blanket probation search condition applied to probationer transferred to LA

Defendant was on probation out of Utah and supervised in Louisiana. His PO received information that he might have child pornography on his cell phone. During a PO visit, he was told to get his cell phone and computer out of his vehicle, and he did. He’d signed a blanket search waiver in Utah and that applied in Louisiana. State v. Haley, 2017 La. App. LEXIS 942 (La.App. 2 Cir. May 24, 2017).

The named CI was corroborated by the independent observation and work of the officer leading up to a drug transaction. There was probable cause, especially when defendant discarded the drugs. State v. Williams, 2017 La. App. LEXIS 956 (La.App. 3 Cir. May 24, 2017).*
