TX3: Littering supports a stop

Littering by tossing a cigarette supports a stop. Two statutes apply when it’s something burning: one if a fire results, one if not. This was the latter. Defendant was found DWI. State v. Wood, 2019 Tex. App. LEXIS 4215 (Tex. App. – Austin May 23, 2019).*

Reasonable conditions can be imposed on persons on pretrial release. The court finds moot the question of whether defendant could be required to submit to warrantless searches as a condition of release. In re Webb, 2019 Cal. LEXIS 3505 (May 23, 2019).*

Defense counsel wasn’t ineffective for not moving to suppress here because it clearly would have lost. Navarro v. United States, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 87217 (M.D. Tenn. May 23, 2019).*
