E.D.Cal.: Def’s actions and words during execution of warrant admissible to show consciousness of guilt

Defendant’s actions (his “encounter”), whatever it is isn’t described, with law enforcement officers when they executed the search warrant on his property are admissible to show consciousness of guilt. United States v. Hitt, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 1856 (E.D. Cal. Jan. 5, 2018).

Defense counsel wasn’t ineffective for not challenging the search that led to defendant’s conviction for lack of standing or abandonment of the property. And, it was a parole search that appeared reasonable. Perkins v. Kelley, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 214194 (E.D. Ark. Dec. 4, 2017),* adopted, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 221 (E.D. Ark. Jan. 2, 2018).*

Playpen warrant sustained. United States v. Hall, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 213465 (W.D.N.C., Dec. 7, 2017),* adopted, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 213000 (W.D. N.C. Dec. 29, 2017).*
