TN: Def had no standing in wife’s journal

Defendant’s wife’s journal was found by her son and delivered to the police, and it mentioned defendant’s sex crimes against their daughter. He had no standing to challenge the seizure, and it was a private seizure at that. State v. Smartt, 2017 Tenn. Crim. App. LEXIS 960 (Nov. 14, 2017).*

The video wasn’t clear, but the officer’s testimony was and was credited, so there was reasonable suspicion for the stop. State v. Sanford, 2017 Tenn. Crim. App. LEXIS 963 (Nov. 14, 2017).*
