N.D.Okla.: “firearms are tangible objects of habitual retention” and that overcomes def’s staleness argument

“Officer Campbell averred that, based on her experience and training, she knows that firearms are tangible objects of habitual retention, and once a person acquires a firearm, he or she usually keeps said weapon for a long period of time.” [Certainly, the court knows this to be true.] That overcomes defendant’s staleness argument. United States v. Pierson, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 19697 (N.D. Okla. Feb. 7, 2019).

On 2254, petitioner’s Fourth Amendment claim is procedurally defaulted for not having been previously raised, and it is also rejected under Stone v. Powell. Roberts v. Wasden, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 19361 (D. Idaho Feb. 4, 2019).*

A police officer’s observation of the speed of a car can support probable cause it was speeding. State v. Gentry, 2019 Iowa App. LEXIS 135 (Feb. 6, 2019).*
