TN: Parole search applied to bedroom def shared with girlfriend but not to another bedroom in the house occupied by a non-parolee

Defendant shared a bedroom with his girlfriend, and another person lived in the house. He was subject to reasonable parole searches, and the court concludes that it applies to everything in the room he shared with his girlfriend. It did not, however, apply to the other non-parolee staying in a separate room. State v. Stanfield, 2018 Tenn. LEXIS 396 (Aug. 8, 2018).

The officer told defendant that he was going to pat him down, and defendant fled. There was, therefore, no seizure for the patdown. His being Tasered was part of attempting to restrain him, and he still wasn’t seized at that point. Defendant’s trench coat had been abandoned at the time it was seized and searched. United States v. Sanchez, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 132291 (D. N.M. Aug. 7, 2018).*
