TN: Because a probation search doesn’t require PC, staleness of information is not an issue

A probation search does not require probable cause, so staleness is not an issue. State v. Ward, 2018 Tenn. Crim. App. LEXIS 666 (Aug. 30, 2018).

Defendant had a GPS put on his vehicle and thermal imaging of his building, both with warrants, and then search warrants to look for a grow operation. Each warrant was based on probable cause. State v. Stock, 2018-Ohio-3496, 2018 Ohio App. LEXIS 3803 (8th Dist. Aug. 30, 2018).*
