S.D.Ga.: Bodycam video shows homeowner’s consent to entry over guest’s gun was voluntary

The owner of the house, captured on a bodycam video, consented to a search of the house for a firearm that defendant, an overnight guest, allegedly brought into the house. United States v. McRae, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 26680 (S.D. Ga. Jan. 23, 2020).*

“[W]e find that Officer Aicher’s use of the word ‘charge’ when describing the possible consequences Johnson would face if he refused the blood draw pursuant to the implied consent law did not place an unconstitutional condition upon Johnson.” Johnson v. Commonwealth, 2020 Va. App. LEXIS 41 (Feb. 18, 2020).*

2254 petitioner lost in the state courts on application of the exclusionary rule to a no-knock entry during a probation search, solely on Hudson v. Michigan, but the state court found the no-knock entry unlawful. Lane v. State, 2017 Ark. 34, 513 S.W.3d 230, cert. den. 137 S.Ct. 2222 (2017). He sued and lost in federal court over qualified immunity. Lane v. Nading, 927 F.3d 1018 (8th Cir. 2019), cert. den. Nov. 19, 2019). There is no 2254 claim. Lane v. Kelley, 2020 U.S. Dist.
