CA9: A valid parole search includes detaining the property long enough to search it

Defendant was on a parole search condition, and that included searching any property under his control and even detaining that property long enough to do it. United States v. Miller, 2017 U.S. App. LEXIS 14283 (9th Cir. Aug. 3, 2017).

The government obtained a warrant on probable cause for tracking information on a telephone. The use of a USMJ rather than an Art. III judge was not seen as error, and, even if it was, the government didn’t benefit from it and defendant wasn’t prejudiced. Therefore, no suppression. United States v. Ackies, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 116888 (D. Me. July 26, 2017).*
