OR: Def disavowed consent issue in trial court, so he couldn’t argue it on appeal

Defendant disavowed the argument made on appeal in the trial court, and you just can’t do that. “Defendant failed to preserve his argument because he failed to provide the trial court with an objection, let alone ‘an explanation of his or her objection that [was] specific enough to ensure that the court [could] identify its alleged error.’ Id. In fact, defendant, in both his suppression motion and at the suppression hearing, expressly disavowed the notion that he was raising the issue that he now asks us to review.” State v. Cowdrey, 290 Ore. App. 415, 2018 Ore. App. LEXIS 221 (Feb. 23, 2018).

The CI provided fairly detailed information, and the officer acted to corroborate some of it, and this supported probable cause. In any event, the good faith exception applies. United States v. Davis, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 27881 (E.D. Mo. Feb. 22, 2018).*
