CA7: Pre-Collins dog sniff of car on property was valid when it happened; GFE applies

A pre-Collins v. Virginia dog sniff of defendant’s car on his property was valid under circuit law at the time it occurred, so the good faith exception requires no suppression. United States v. Velazquez, 2018 U.S. App. LEXIS 28445 (7th Cir. Oct. 9, 2018).

Defendant’s claim to withdraw his plea that defense counsel didn’t file a motion to suppress is unavailing because he doesn’t show that the motion to suppress would be granted. United States v. Napper, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 173376 (W.D. Pa. Oct. 9, 2018).*
