WY: Patdown led to plain feel of drugs in watch pocket

During a patdown, the officer felt what was likely drugs in the “coin pocket” (called a watch pocket) and it was immediately apparent to him. Therefore, plain feel applied. Maestas v. State, 2018 WY 47, 2018 Wyo. LEXIS 49 (May 8, 2018).

Defendant’s guilty plea waived his suppression motion. People v. Scott, 2018 NY Slip Op 03381, 2018 N.Y. App. Div. LEXIS 3293 (2d Dept. May 9, 2018).*

The raid on defendant’s supplier produced 404(b) evidence used against defendant. It was relevant to prove defendant’s intent. State v. Robinson, 2018-Ohio-1809, 2018 Ohio App. LEXIS 1941 (10th Dist. May 8, 2018).*
