OH6: State didn’t show unequivocal consent on dashcam video

Defendant’s maybe nodding her head yes was contrary to her words on the dashcam video. There was no unequivocal voluntary consent. State v. Casi, 2020-Ohio-3063, 2020 Ohio App. LEXIS 2010 (6th Dist. May 22, 2020).

“Although the video of Vaclavik’s encounter with Adams-absent sound-did not establish that Adams affirmatively responded to Vaclavik’s request for consent to search, Adams’s recorded conduct supported an inference that he voluntarily consented to the search.” Adams v. State, 2020 Tex. App. LEXIS 4017 (Tex. App. – Corpus Christi – Edinburg May 21, 2020).*
