E.D.Wis.: Body cam video along with testimony showed consent voluntary

The body cam video of the encounter on the street shows that the consent was voluntary. United States v. Polnitz, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 120364 (E.D. Wis. July 19, 2018).*

“[T]he trial court erred in determining that, following the Birchfield decision, the Fourth Amendment prohibits admitting in a criminal DUI proceeding evidence of a defendant’s refusal to submit to a warrantless blood test requested pursuant to Vermont’s implied consent law.” State v. Rajda, 2018 VT 72, 2018 Vt. LEXIS 98 (July 16, 2018).*

Defendant was incorrect that there was no warrant for his DNA. The officer only said that he had no warrant in hand, not that one hadn’t been issued. United States v. Heard, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 120389 (N.D. Iowa July 19, 2018).*
