TN: Officer’s recollection refreshed was credited by trial court and followed on appeal

The trooper who stopped defendant had no independent recollection of defendant’s stop, but looking at the video and reading the reports was past recollection refreshed, and the officer’s testimony was then credited by the trial court. The stop was found justified. State v. Brown, 2018 Tenn. Crim. App. LEXIS 119 (Feb. 20, 2018).*

Some factual assertions in the affidavit for search warrant were incorrect, but this was negligence at best and wasn’t material overall to the finding of probable cause. State v. Hartsfield, 2018 Tenn. Crim. App. LEXIS 118 (Feb. 20, 2018).*
