CA11: There was RS others were in the house to justify a protective sweep which includes opening a closet

Officers had specific and articulable facts of persons that might be in the house, so a protective sweep was permitted. This included opening a closet door where an assault rifle was found. United States v. Solano-Mendoza, 2019 U.S. App. LEXIS 30021 (11th Cir. Oct. 7, 2019).*

In a USDJ review of a USMJ’s ruling on probable cause, the evidence supports the USMJ’s credibility determination. Thus, no second hearing is required. The defendant’s overly generous reading of one officer’s report that they could see in the car before the door was opened isn’t supported by the record. United States v. Quintin, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 173304 (E.D. Ky. Oct. 7, 2019).*
