N.D.Ga.: SW for CP permitted search of entire dwelling; it wasn’t apparent to officers def had a roommate

Defendant’s email and IP address connected him to receipt of child pornography. The search warrant for his entire home for child pornography was valid even though defendant had a roommate. There’s no constitutional requirement for police to go to great efforts to determine whether the home is a multifamily dwelling. Nothing from the appearance of the building suggested otherwise. United States v. Reed, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 211987 (N.D. Ga. Nov. 13, 2018),* adopted, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 211475 (N.D. Ga. Dec. 17, 2018).*

There was reasonable suspicion on the totality for the officer’s patdown of all the people in the car for officer safety under Terry. Shay v. State, 2018 Ark. 393, 2018 Ark. LEXIS 329 (Dec. 20, 2018),* rev’g Shay v. State, 2018 Ark. App. 101, 542 S.W.3d 885 (2018).
