WY: Def’s contradictions of travel compared to car rental agreement and lies about criminal history was RS

Defendant was stopped for following too close in a rental car. It was reasonable for the trooper to suspect defendant rented the car to transport drugs because there were obvious contradictions between the car rental agreement and his travel plans, and defendant had a criminal history that he wasn’t honest about. Robinson v. State, 2019 WY 125, 2019 Wyo. LEXIS 127 (Dec. 12, 2019).

There was a warrantless parole search of defendant’s cell phone, and that led to search warrants for his property. There was no Fourth Amendment violation. United States v. Wood, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 213992 (N.D. Ind. Dec. 9, 2019).*

An arrest warrant December 31 after an alleged illegal entry December 8 by other officers was attenuated by new information. United States v. Pack, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 214020 (W.D. Pa. Dec. 12, 2019).*
