WV: Exclusionary rule would not be applied in administrative child abuse proceeding for protection of children

The exclusionary rule does not apply to child abuse allegations in administrative proceedings. The court declines the request to apply it despite the rule that it doesn’t apply in civil cases generally because of harm to the children. In re K.L., 2021 W. Va. LEXIS 300 (June 3, 2021).

A pill bottle attributed to defendant was seized by police from behind the counter of the deli where he worked. He fails to show a reasonable expectation of privacy there. United States v. Alawi, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 104793 (W.D. N.Y. June 2, 2021).*

The officer had reasonable suspicion to ask for DLs of the occupant of a car that slid off a snowy highway because there was enough indication going on that something else happened. United States v. Chang, 2021 U.S. App. LEXIS 16734 (7th Cir. June 4, 2021).*
