W.D.Ky.: Automobile exception search doesn’t have to be done promptly

Where the stop and seizure of the vehicle was with probable cause, its automobile exception search could occur later. United States v. Brown, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 120634 (W.D. Ky. July 9, 2020).*

A private person finding defendant’s SD card with child pornography on it was a private search. Contacting the police and their attempting to get a search warrant was after the fact, so it was not in conjunction with the private search that revealed it. United States v. Farrar, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 120629 (D. Mont. July 9, 2020).*
