OH6: Trial court didn’t commit plain error in not inquiring into drug dog’s training when defense didn’t

The trial court did not commit plain error in not inquiring into the drug dogs training when defendant didn’t raise it. State v. Jones, 2019-Ohio-3704, 2019 Ohio App. LEXIS 3777 (6th Dist. Sept. 16, 2019).

The particulars of a drug dog’s training isn’t an issue unless the defendant raises it. The court doesn’t have to determine it on its own. United States v. Tullous, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 156746 (W.D. Mo. Sept. 13, 2019).

Plaintiff was Tased three times. The Court of Appeals finds the first and third reasonable, but likely not the second because it wasn’t apparent then that plaintiff was a threat, so the case is remanded for reconsideration of the second Tasing. Jackson v. Stair, 2019 U.S. App. LEXIS 27479 (8th Cir. Sept. 12, 2019).*
