CA8 has a pole camera case involving the front door but finds it harmless, if even a 4A violation

Defendant in a child pornography case had a pole camera set up across the street from his house to see who was going in. He challenges the surveillance, but the court finds, if error, it’s harmless on the record as a whole because the officers also testified to physically watching him coming and going from the house. United States v. Stefanyuk, 2019 U.S. App. LEXIS 36662 (8th Cir. Dec. 11, 2019).

Defendant didn’t have standing to challenge the inventory search of a car he was a passenger in. He did have standing to challenge the stop, but it was with reasonable suspicion that the driver had an arrest warrant out. United States v. Marcum, 2019 U.S. App. LEXIS 36668 (9th Cir. Dec. 11, 2019).*
