N.D.Ga.: Clothing as evidence in plain view can be seized whether from a suspect or victim

Defendant’s clothing was properly seized under the plain view doctrine whether he was a suspect or a victim. Defendant also didn’t have standing in the car involved because it wasn’t his. United States v. Hood, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 5357 (N.D. Ga. Jan. 11, 2019).

There is no reasonable expectation of privacy in jail calls. Here, the court goes one step further and finds implied consent from making the call when hearing notice that the calls are being recorded. United States v. Christensen, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 6167 (C.D. Ill. Jan. 14, 2019).
