CT: No REP in jail letter to def’s mother with admission

Defendant’s Fourth Amendment rights weren’t violated by corrections officers copying a letter to his mother with an admission then turning it over to law enforcement officers. He had no privacy interest in his mail that society would recognize. The claim that a regulation was violated wasn’t properly preserved. State v. Jarmon, 195 Conn. App. 262 (Jan. 14, 2020).

Defendant’s letter in prison was properly opened to look for contraband and general security concerns. It was properly admitted at trial. Davis v. State, 2020 Ga. LEXIS 7 (Jan. 13, 2020).

Defendant appeals the visitation condition of his supervised release. It’s not unlawful under United States v. Cabello, 916 F.3d 543 (5th Cir. 2019). United States v. Prentice, 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 883 (5th Cir. Jan. 10, 2020).*
