KS: Def’s actions after the police entry and signing the consent form clearly show voluntariness

“We note, however, that Daino’s acts after the officers entered his residence confirm, instead of refute, his intent to consent to their entry. Daino never protested the officers’ presence. Instead, he later opened a safe for the officers, agreed officers could search his bedroom, showed officers where the drugs were hidden, then signed a voluntary consent to search form that the officer had reviewed with him. That form states: … [it was comprehensive].” State v. Daino, 2020 Kan. App. LEXIS 4 (Jan. 10, 2020).

A shots fired call led police to a high crime area, and reasonable suspicion justified the stop of defendant and two others on the street. A shirtless mail in black pants was described. Two were shirtless, and defendant had on blue jeans. When the man in black was frisked, there was no weapon. It was reasonable then to frisk defendant. United States v. Mayfield, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 224325 (D. Neb. Dec. 12, 2019).*
