S.D.Ohio: Child abuse allegation isn’t stale because it’s of “continuing concern”

The information for the search warrant was not stale: “In this light, the information about child abuse was not stale. Indeed, the character of the alleged crime—abuse of a child—was grounds for continuing concern.” As to continuing a traffic stop: “Under the circumstances here, the officers had both reasonable suspicion and statutory grounds for extending the stop.” United States v. Rashid, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 157281 (S.D. Ohio. Aug. 31, 2020).

An internet service provider viewed one image of child pornography which was a private search and the government saw that image. The government also saw another image that wasn’t subject to the private search. No matter because the first was enough to show probable cause. United States v. Wilbert, 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 27578 (2d Cir. Aug. 28, 2020).*
