OH5: Meeting drug buyer, going home, returning to the place of sale was nexus to house

Defendant met a drug buyer, drove to his house, and reunited with the buyer for the transaction. This gives sufficient probable cause for nexus to house. State v. Detamore, 2018-Ohio-297, 2018 Ohio App. LEXIS 274 (5th Dist. Jan. 25, 2018).

Defense counsel has wide discretion in choosing the suppression arguments to make to the trial court. There was no valid motion to suppress overlooked by defense counsel here. The search warrant omitted certain information acquired by the police but it was inculpatory and not exculpatory and it was hearsay from others. The omitted information sure doesn’t help the defendant. State v. Nickelson, 2018-Ohio-250, 2018 Ohio App. LEXIS 255 (7th Dist. Jan. 24, 2018).*
