E.D.Mich.: Giving password to computer and Facebook account waived REP as to that person

Defendant gave his passwords to his computer and Facebook to his victim. Her searches are not Fourth Amendment violations. United States v. Johnson, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 169622 (E.D. Mich. Oct. 1, 2019).

The state’s admission on appeal that they no longer needed his cell phone as evidence showed that the trial court abused its discretion in denying return of his phone. State v. Devore, 2019-Ohio-4035, 2019 Ohio App. LEXIS 4127 (5th Dist. Sept. 30, 2019).

The video shows defendant was approached by the officer while sitting in his car and talked to about his drinking. This was not a seizure; it was consensual. State v. Henderson, 2019-Ohio-4041, 2019 Ohio App. LEXIS 4121 (5th Dist. Sept. 30, 2019).*
