CA11: Exclusionary rule doesn’t apply to revocation of supervised release; SCOTUS would so hold

The exclusionary rule does not apply to revocation of supervised release conditions. While SCOTUS hasn’t ruled on that precise question, its parole and probation search cases are a clear sign it will follow them there. United States v. Hill, 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 51 (11th Cir. Jan. 3, 2020).

Defendant was stopped by a state trooper for tailgating. When defendant produced his license, a glassine bag of cocaine was visible sticking from his pocket. This was all cause to arrest and conduct a search incident. The passenger’s nervousness gave at least reasonable suspicion as to him, too. United States v. Perez, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 433 (D. Mass. Jan. 2, 2020).*
