NC: Failure to prove nexus to real property in SW requires suppression

The affidavit for search warrant failed to connect defendant to the premises sufficient for there to be probable cause, and the court of appeals decision to suppress is affirmed. As to a vehicle, the officer had more information but didn’t include it. The fact he was there at the time of the arrest was likely incidental and could have been innocent. State v. Lewis, 2019 N.C. LEXIS 793 (Aug. 22, 2019).

Defendant was convicted of bestiality with dogs, and a random search condition without reasonable suspicion wasn’t reasonably related to the offense. City of Cleveland v. Turner, 2019-Ohio-3378, 2019 Ohio App. LEXIS 3446 (8th Dist. Aug. 22, 2019).* See Cleveland sex offender who was first to be convicted under Ohio bestiality law loses appeal.
