TN: Def was brought before magistrate 47¼ hours after his arrest; no Riverside violation and it wouldn’t ripen to a Gerstein violation

Defendant was brought before a magistrate 47¼ hours after his arrest and arraigned at 3:15 am, and this was presumptively reasonable. His interrogation after he was released from the hospital after arrest but before arraignment complied with Miranda, and nothing “ripened” into a Gerstein violation. State v. Long, 2017 Tenn. Crim. App. LEXIS 609 (July 11, 2017).

Defense counsel was not ineffective for not pursuing a motion to suppress seizure of a stolen laptop from defendant’s backpack when defendant disclaimed ownership when confronted with it. Abernathy v. State, 2017 Tenn. Crim. App. LEXIS 602 (July 10, 2017).*
