LA5: Hearsay on driver’s consent admissible at suppression hearing

The trial court found the stop was reasonable for shooting from a car and driver consented based on the testimony of the stopping officer. Defendant’s claim that the driver’s consent was hearsay and inadmissible was rejected. All other exceptions for vehicle search were rejected. In the Interest of T.L., 2018 La. App. LEXIS 297 (La. App. 5 Cir. Feb. 21, 2018).

State parole seized defendant’s cell phone for safekeeping, but didn’t search it. Then defendant was indicted. The phone is not returned yet. United States v. Robinson, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 27943 (E.D. N.Y. Feb. 21, 2018) (R&R).*
