ID: State’s claim of exigency for warrantless entry into house was unsupported; suppression affirmed

Defendant was allegedly selling tainted marijuana from his house. Police did a warrantless entry with exigency as the excuse. There wasn’t any claim that anybody inside was in distress, and no questions about it. Suppression affirmed. State v. Sessions, 2019 Ida. LEXIS 182 (Oct. 7, 2019),* amended, 2019 Ida. LEXIS 188 (Oct. 21, 2019).*

The state showed sufficient reliability of the CI to establish probable cause. People v. Coleman, 2019 NY Slip Op 07272, 2019 N.Y. App. Div. LEXIS 7271 (2d Dept. Oct. 9, 2019).*

The officer’s stop for a traffic violation on private property wasn’t an offense and the stop should have been suppressed. The DUI is reversed. State v. Tostenson, 2019 Iowa App. LEXIS 941 (Oct. 9, 2019).*
