WI: Uncorroborated informant hearsay was strong enough to credit for probation search on RS

Wisconsin permits warrantless probation and parole searches on reasonable suspicion by any law enforcement officer. Officers had it here based on uncorroborated informant hearsay. The record also supports the trial court’s conclusion that the officer knew of the search condition before the search. State v. Anderson, 2019 WI 97, 2019 Wisc. LEXIS 545 (Nov. 15, 2019).

Defendant’s BAC level was properly obtained from the hospital where he was treated after a fatal accident by search warrant. His admissions to paramedics he’d been drinking before the crash were includable. State v. Smith, 2019-Ohio-4706, 2019 Ohio App. LEXIS 4776 (2d Dist. Nov. 15, 2019).*

Defendant did not properly preserve for appeal the issue whether there was probable cause to arrest him. Second, even if he had, there was probable cause. State v. Bradley, 2019-Ohio-4698, 2019 Ohio App. LEXIS 4773 (2d Dist. Nov. 15, 2019).*
