TN: SW for cell phone images of drugs supported accidental finding of CP

Officers had a search warrant for defendant’s phone to look for images and messages about drug transactions. That led them to stumble upon child pornography as well. The warrant and search were valid. State v. Greenman, 2022 Tenn. Crim. App. LEXIS 550 (Dec. 27, 2022).*

“In this case, by contrast, there is no indication that law enforcement had a wealth of detailed information that was not reflected in the search warrant. The Premises Warrant was not required to provide more details regarding the specific electronic devices to be seized, because further details regarding the particulars of the electronic devices were not available.” United States v. Ramos, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 229903 (S.D.N.Y. Dec. 21, 2022).*

Potential trespassing crimes into commercial buildings was reasonable suspicion justifying a stop and frisk. Miller v. State, 2022 Ind. App. LEXIS 422 (Dec. 27, 2022).*

Defendant’s being involved with a carjacked vehicle was probable cause. United States v. Whited, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 231845 (E.D. Tenn. Dec. 27, 2022).*
