C.D.Ill.: Def counsel had no duty to raise lack of an AW because it’s a frivolous argument

Defense counsel had no duty to raise lack of an arrest warrant for defendant’s arrest because it was frivolous and wouldn’t affect the outcome of the case at all. Brown v. United States, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 69027 (C.D. Ill. Apr. 23, 2019).*

Defendant’s presence at the execution of a search warrant elsewhere where he had nothing on him was relevant and admissible to RICO overt acts 96 & 98 showing his part in the conspiracy. Actual possession of drugs isn’t required. United States v. Robinson, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 68462 (E.D. Mich. Apr. 23, 2019).*

Defendant brought drugs over to a woman’s house. She had the authority to consent to a search of her own place that resulted in seizure of the drugs. State v. Crawford, 2019-Ohio-1507, 2019 Ohio App. LEXIS 1607 (5th Dist. Apr. 23, 2019).*
