OH2: Citizen informant provided RS

Officers received a disorderly conduct call at a fitness center. When officers arrived, defendant was pointed out, and the officers detained him. They hadn’t seen anything illegal at that point, but the employee’s call as a citizen informant was enough for reasonable suspicion. Suppression order reversed. State v. Taylor, 2021-Ohio-4338, 2021 Ohio App. LEXIS 4243 (2d Dist. Dec. 9, 2021).

“Officer Hendrix had several objective reasons to suspect Easterly of criminal activity. For one, the DEA had alerted Hendrix to its ongoing investigation into Easterly’s activities.” There was reasonable suspicion on the totality. United States v. Easterly, 2021 U.S. App. LEXIS 36415 (11th Cir. Dec. 9, 2021).*

2255 petitioner claims that the state search warrant returns were fabricated to show that state law was not violated in the search of his property. “Aside from conclusory allegations, Petitioner fails to produce any evidence, or otherwise demonstrate, that the search warrants were invalid or illegal. To the extent Petitioner argues that Rodriguez should have raised issues of state law violation, ‘federal law, not state law, governs the admissibility of evidence in federal court, and complaints that the evidence was obtained in violation of state law are of no effect.’ United States v. Noriega, 676 F.3d 1252, 1263 n.4 (11th Cir. 2012) …” Prive v. United States, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 236206 (M.D.Fla. Dec. 9, 2021).*
