PA: Safety concerns are proper concerns for placement of a DUI checkpoint

“The selection and operation of the roadblock checkpoint was in substantial compliance with the Tarbert/Blouse guidelines.” Safety concerns are a proper concern in selection of the place for a DUI checkpoint. Commonwealth v. Mercado, 2019 PA Super 63, 2019 Pa. Super. LEXIS 193 (Feb. 27, 2019).

Defendant’s consent to search his hotel room was voluntary. State v. Buenrostro, 2019-Ohio-694, 2019 Ohio App. LEXIS 737 (5th Dist. Feb. 25, 2019).*

The court has previously ruled that the search warrant did not have to be limited to the basement of his house. It can’t be part of a post-conviction petition now. Jha v. United States, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 30962 (D. Md. Feb. 27, 2019).*
