LA3: Once parolee found in possession of MJ, search of his hotel room was justified

Defendant was arrested for possession of marijuana so the search of his wallet was justified as a search incident. As a parolee, his hotel room was his “residence” for purposes of a parole search. State v. Warren, 2018 La. App. LEXIS 358 (La.App. 3 Cir. Feb. 28, 2018).

Defendant filed a motion to suppress for outrageous governmental misconduct based on the fact the CI was allowed to do a drug deal and that the CI probably was doing drugs. He alleges no specific facts for any of this, and he doesn’t get an evidentiary hearing. At best he shows something that goes to the CI’s credibility of whether the CI should testify at trial. United States v. Thomas, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 33061 (N.D. Ind. Mar. 1, 2018).*
