C.D.Cal.: Under collective knowledge doctrine, the officer making the stop doesn’t need to know the PC

There was probable cause from collective knowledge for defendant’s stop and the search of his vehicle for a hidden compartment with drugs, even though the stopping officer didn’t know what it was. United States v. Isshpunani, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 135301 (C.D. Cal. Aug. 17, 2017).

Probable cause was shown for the search warrant for defendant’s property for evidence of sexual battery and sex trafficking, that he had a minor victim with him “without privilege to do so.” United States v. Zyn Ho, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 135658 (S.D. Ohio Aug. 24, 2017).*

Defendant’s attorney couldn’t be ineffective for not pursuing the Fourth Amendment claim that his stop was invalid when it clearly was. He fled from a stop, and that was additional reasonable suspicion. Boatley v. United States, 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 189224 (S.D. Fla. May 2, 2016).*
