FL1: Def’s car search outside his chain link fence was outside the curtilage

Defendant was stopped for a traffic offense, but he made it to his mobile home and parked outside the chain link fence. The court finds the car was outside the curtilage under Dunn when the stop and dog sniff occurred. Davis v. State, 2018 Fla. App. LEXIS 15397 (Fla. 1st DCA Oct. 31, 2018).

Defendant’s 2255 is denied and defense counsel was not ineffective for not filing a motion to suppress when defendant cannot even show on what grounds it would be successful. On the merits, it wouldn’t be. United States v. Tinson, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 185488 (E.D. La. Oct. 30, 2018).*
